Babylon Human Translation will expand its coverage of languages soon and we are actually keeping records of translators with other language pairs. We will add more languages based on our customers' needs and the availability of translators, so we are happy to receive your applications.

The rate you are paid for your work depends on size of the work and the needed skills (expert translations)

To facilitate the payment procedure Babylon Translations pays you through PayPal. As soon as you have submitted a translation and the customer accepted it your Earning account will be credited according to word counts of the translation project.

Translators requesting payment through PayPal: After reaching a credit of at least 40 USD you can claim and receive your payment through your account panel.

Please remember that PayPal might deduct its transaction fees from what we pay you, according to your account type.

In order to claim your funds you need to:

  • Reach at least an earning account of 40 USD in case you request your payment through PayPal.
  • For individual payments procedures, such as bank wire transfer, you have to reach at least an earning account of 200 USD and request a withdrawal of at least 200 USD.
  • Request your payment through your account panel.
  • Use the comment text area to let us know how you want to be paid. Take care to enter full and correct details.
  • Please send your invoice to Translator Invoice.
  • Note that we release payments once a month: Payments are made on the 1st day of the month, subject to small changes according to the actual working days of each current month.

We want our customers to have trust in our service, to get reliable and fast results. Information about a new translation project is sent out to a couple of suitable translators. The translator who is first to accept this project through the 'Translation Jobs" panel, will get the job. From that moment on - to avoid any double work - this job becomes unavailable to all other invited translators.

With every new job offering you will be informed about your deadline. Please check carefully if you can keep this deadline before accepting a translation project. If you do not submit the translation on time, the project will be re-opened for other translators. You will not be able to choose the same project again, nor will you get paid for the project. In addition, missing out on deadlines will influence your rating within the team and you are less likely to receive future jobs.

We carefully examine such cases. In a first step we will try to resolve the conflict by requesting corrections and improvements by the translator. If this doesn't succeed, we will pass on the job to another translator. We keep the right to act on our discretion as to whether the first translator is eligible for a payment or, if we see that we have fallen victims to fraud, the payment will be drawn back. We will act taking care of both, the customer's satisfaction as well as keeping our team of translators on the requested level of professionalism.

If you think that our decision is an injustice towards you, please e-mail us.

You are. The text window on the Project Detail page is no work space. This text window is to be used only for pasting your finished translation for submission. Using this text window for making your translation might lead to data loss in case your Internet connection gets lost or your session on LingoZ ends. Please copy the text to be translated to a file on your local computer and save your work frequently.
