What Happens After You Submit Your Translation
Privacy for Standard Requests
Unlike Light Requests, Standard Requests are always set to private. This means that the translators can only see the translations they submit themselves.
Double-check requests are from clients who would like their purchased translation to go through a second round of checking by a different translator. This translation request has already gone through the process of being translated; however, the requester would like you to take the finished translation, read it thoroughly, and make any required corrections or edits to enhance its quality.
- The compensation for Double-Check Requests is the same as for regular translation requests.
- To take on a Double-Check Request, open a Standard Request and select the "Revision" tab.
- Note: You must have a score of 61+ to be eligible to take on a Double-Check Request.
- A Premium Request is a type of Standard Request that a client makes available exclusively to their favorite translators.
- Once a translator submits work to a client, that client can designate them as one of their favorite translators.
- Being an excellent communicator and submitting top quality work will increase the chance that a client will select you as one of their favorites and later send you a Premium Request.
How to See Your Feedback
For each completed Standard Request, you will see the following information:
- Client username
