To access paid translations an editor should be evaluated after completing at least 10 tasks in a language pair.
When the editor reaches paid editor level, s/he will be notified by email.
Unbabel Editors are paid by hour for the time you effectively spent editing paid tasks.
Editor start at $8 per hour. Based on the speed and translation quality you can increase this rate up to $18/hour. The faster you are, with the highest quality, the more money you can make per hour. But if your quality and speed are below our translation standards, we will adjust your hourly rate according that.
Currently we don’t have paid tasks online on all languages pairs all the time. To be notified about paid tasks, we suggest you to allow in your browser our Unbabel Google Chrome extension or install our Mozilla Firefox add-on. You can also download our Unbabel mobile apps for Android or iOS.
We pay per hour because traditional per word, $5 cents or $10 cents per word, and percentage revenue share models, 50%/50% or 70%/30% do not work for crowd translation as anywhere between 3 and 100 people can be involved in a given translation job.
Even though we pay per hour, you will see the expected earning for each task, based on your current average speed – you can find out how much you earned at your Account.
