“We already have a tight-knit team of translators<br /> on Smartcat who make sure that our voice stays consistent throughout. And for the most critical content, we can add more linguists as proofreaders for the same content.”
Natalya Pavlikova, Xsolla
“At each step of the process, we received full support from the Smartcat team, and when any questions or unexpected tasks occurred, their team was ready to respond instantly to solve problems or simply share their expertise. Smartcat allowed us to translate the Weebly website into 13 languages in a very short time frame and to a high standard.”
Nicolás Olucha Sánchez, Weebly
“Smartcat gives me access to a team of translators whom I trust and who know the voice and writing style we’re looking for at HotelTonight. The messaging functionality included in the Smartcat editor allows me to communicate with them and provide any feedback and support they need to render the quirkiness and edginess of our content. In addition, the platform provides the latest CAT tools and ensures complete transparency for every project. I can view the progress of our translations, organize collaborative projects and access stats and metrics for each freelancer all in one place, which is awesome!”
Bryan Lopuck, HotelTonight
How much will the translation cost?
Each freelancer can set their rates in their own profile using a single word as the translation unit, or a character if they work in Japanese or any dialect of Chinese.
Sentences that fully or partially match those stored in the translation memory are calculated at discounts depending on the percentage of the match.
The total project cost is calculated automatically in real time. You can pay the translator directly in Smartcat using a bank card, via PayPal or by wire transfer.
