Translators

Task

Notebookcheck translators translate reviews and other articles at home and put the translated content in our Typo3 CMS. Deadlines do not exist but the content should be available as fast as possible as the topics outage quickly.

The use of automatic translation software is prohibited, even as a support tool.

Payment

We pay translators a pre-determined rate per source word or flat rate per translated article. Contact us for the current price a specific language.

Application

Curriculum vitae, references, a description of why you are apt, and a sample review/text (optional).
