How do I become a translator with Simply Translate?
Register with Simply Translate as a translator using the button above. We will send you a questionnaire by e-mail. If you meet our requirements, we will send you a sample translation to test your knowledge and skills. If you pass the test, we will officially register you and approach you for translation projects within your area of expertise.
Do I have to have an active or valid VAT number?
Yes, by operation of law it is mandatory to have a valid VAT number. If you do not have an active or valid VAT number, then you unfortunately cannot work with us. Should you have questions about this, please contact us.
Can I submit my application per e-mail?
No, it is not possible to apply for freelance positions by e-mail. You can sign up using the orange button on this page. You will then receive a questionnaire by e-mail in which you can fill in your details. If we see a possibility for working together, we will send you a test translation. If your test results are positive, we will register you and contact you when we have a translation project available for you.
How do I get a translation project?
We offer translation projects based on your translation expertise. When we have a matching translation project, we send you an e-mail with the client’s preferences (for example, the language combination, deadline, instructions and the rate). If you are available to carry out the project, you confirm your availability.
I responded to a job offer, but have not received a project confirmation. What do I need to do?
If you have not received a project confirmation, then the project has not (yet) been awarded to you. Contact your project manager for more information. Note: do not start working before you have received the project confirmation. This prevents misunderstandings.
