Membership means commission-free access to translators and translation companies's unique membership model means that when outsourcers and service providers connect via, neither side is charged any commissions or fees. Meet a client or provider, and the relationship is yours, unencumbered, forever. What does this mean? meeting

It means language professionals who meet clients at do not need to pay anything to the website. There are no fees for this connection. 

Outsourcers are encouraged to post jobs or to contact freelancers via profiles on the site. Once a positive connection is made, the relationship may last as long as you wish. Unlike other sites, when a client meets you via the directory, that client is yours, directly. You set your prices, you bill clients directly, and the next time they need your services, they are free to go directly to you without visiting



This site has been impacting the language community for over 20 years. In that time, millions of dollars (or whatever currency you agree upon) have been paid to language professionals. With zero commission, it means more of those wages have gone to service providers.

Some sites might take 5-20% of your wages. Not 

The real goal is to connect service providers and outsourcers for a long-term relationship. 

Need help establishing yourself with this mindset? We invite you to join likeminded professionals by talking about it in forums, at the Translation Mastermind facebook group free to professional members with the plus package or in the free Translators and Interpreters ( Facebook group. membership

Without commissions, how does remain the world's leading community of freelance translators?

Members pay for membership benefits that give connection advantages to professional members for quoting on jobs and getting found in the directory. Business membership helps outsourcers in their relationship with service providers and get found by end clients and other language companies for more work.

Why does work like this? Because the site was made by freelancers, for freelancers.


Do you think you want to be a freelance translator or interpreter? We wrote a blog post on that too.
