An Editor corrects the outputs of the Unbabel’s machine translations in order to make sure the final message has the same meaning as the original, can be easily understood and sounds natural.
You are not required to be a professional translator in order to become an Editor: if you have good knowledge in two or more languages, you can sign up as an Editor.
After you register on the platform you have to do five tasks, just so we know you are an actual human being. These tasks will access your basic editing skills.
You start on the platform as a Trainee. Trainees have to do at least ten training tasks that will be evaluated. After the evaluation (and getting a positive rating) you can unlock access to paid tasks. If the rating of the evaluation is not enough, Editors won't have access to paid tasks.
Editors are allowed to get paid tasks. These are the main bulk of our workforce.
Senior Editors are handpicked by our team. Only the best Editors - those with higher ratings and more experience on the platform, can become Senior Editors and work on Senior Reviews.
Native Senior Editor
Senior reviewers are by default native reviewers in the language pairs in which the target language is the native language you are registered at Unbabel.
