Translators are the crux of our business – without you the work we do would simply not happen!
Based in the UK, we are a leading translation company with well-known clients from around the world, enabling us to offer great opportunities and regular assignments to skilled translators. We are always looking for expert linguists to join our team in providing top-quality service to our clients.
In addition to details of how to become one of our approved translators, here you’ll also find our current gallery of Most Valued Translators, links to useful information, and even a newsletter specifically for translators that you can sign up to.
Becoming a Web-Translations approved translator
We receive hundreds of applications from translators every week, some make it – many don’t. To ensure that we select only the very best to include in our database of approved translators, we require applicants to meet certain criteria, which includes:
- Only translating into your mother tongue
- Possession of a translation qualification in addition to a university degree
- Minimum 3 years’ experience as a professional translator, or translation of over 50,000 words
We prefer to work with freelancers who use Trados Studio version 2009, 2011, 2014 or MemoQ, although this is not an absolute requirement.
