Frequently Asked Questions - Translators

WHAT IS MOTAWORD FOR A TRANSLATOR?

We are a collaborative human translation platform that allows translators to work on projects simultaneously. MotaWord eliminates daily hassles such as invoicing, enables transparent, real-time reporting of your work and automated payments without imposing deadlines on projects.

HOW IS MOTAWORD'S COLLABORATIVE APPROACH IS HELPFUL TO ME?

As you are not held to any deadlines, you can just go in, contribute as much or as little as you want and make good use of your time. We believe that it is good to be informed and have the choice of being able to participate in projects whenever you are idle.

Moreover, our approach allows translators to share their ideas on terminology, style and linguistic structures. They help each other acknowledge mistakes and learn from them. Hopefully, you will learn from peers as well and master your skills further.

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH A PROJECT?

We removed the never-ending back and forth with clients before you settle a deal. As soon as a client of ours submits a project, you are automatically invited via email. You can log into your dashboard and start working on the project without bidding or waiting for approval.

HOW MANY TRANSLATORS ARE WORKING ON A PROJECT?

Most of our projects are not assigned to any single translator. Our system is designed in such a way to allow multiple translators work at the same project without intervening each other’s work.

DO I NEED TO DOWNLOAD ANYTHING TO WORK WITH MOTAWORD?

Our system lives in the cloud. You only work online in your browser and you don’t need any software to assist you. Everything is on www.motaword.com and all of your communication is encrypted.

HOW DOES COMPENSATION AND PAYMENT WORK?

Each project has a per word rate that is calculated by our system and you are invited with the rate offered.

Your payment will be automatically sent via PayPal, 15 days after project completion, with a $25 minimum. You do not need to send us any invoices.

WHICH PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE OFFERED?

We currently offer payments via PayPal only.
