Testing Translators

You don’t have to compromise quality in urgent projects. Simply test the translators in a quick and reliable way:

  1. Submit a request by sending us an email or by completing the form. Make sure you specify how many translators you need, how much you’re willing to pay, the topic of your content, and provide any other details you believe can help us find the best candidates for your project. We also recommend you attach a sample of the text you need to be translated.
  2. We will find translators who fit your requirements in our database and invite them to complete the test based on your text sample right in Smartcat.
  3. Once the first applications start rolling in, you will receive a notification email with a link to the page where you can check out the applicants’ profiles and review their test results.
  4. Select the best candidates by marking their translations as Excellent (★) — those freelancers will be added to your Team.

In Smartcat, translators do not get paid for completing tests. Instead, they are rewarded with the Test Passed badge, which will be shown in their profiles, if the customer marks their translation as Excellent (★) or Acceptable (✔). Marking the translation as Rejected (Ø) will not affect its author in any way.
