To become a Gengo translator…

…is a quick and straightforward process designed to help proven translators get access to work quickly and flexibly. Translators create an account on the Gengo system and are taken through a challenging two-part test. Once the tests are graded and passed, the translator is approved to work on the Gengo platform.

All tests are reviewed by our Language Specialists, professional translators with proven track records and several years of experience.

Translators! Promote yourself on Gengo…

…by actively becoming involved in the community: translate large projects alongside your peers, keep your quality score high, and contribute your thoughts and tips in the forums to help your fellow translators.

When working with customers, translators can make a difference by paying extra attention to communication. Some of the ways in which a translator can make a difference include:

  • Reaching out to the customer to clarify terms or meaning where there may be more than one way to translate
  • Offering alternative translation options and other constructive ideas to help the customer succeed
  • Making it a point to always be courteous and professional

These are all ways in which a translator can show to the customer that they care.

Repeat customers tend to have a select group of translators that they use for their project, having been completely satisfied with their work to date. Translators can increase their chances of being added to this exclusive list by constantly striving to provide top quality work, while maintaining the customer’s distinct style. The customer will then select you as one of their Preferred Translators for future jobs.

Getting paid on Gengo…

…is easy. Using Payoneer, translators can receive payments from Gengo either to their Payoneer Prepaid Mastercard® or directly to a personal bank account. You decide how you want to get paid.
