It's a ProZ.com service that consists of a decentralized set of pre-screened interpreters taking on-demand interpreting calls with ProZ.com partners.
Wait, what? In simple terms, the Interpreter Network allows interpreters to work remotely by taking calls from ProZ.com partners. Partners send calls from clients to ProZ.com interpreters. Interpreters take these calls through an online platform (not phones!) and get paid for every minute of interpretation. So it's as simple as connecting to the platform, taking a call, and getting paid.
Before you can start taking calls, you need to pass a quick screening process with the ProZ.com staff. This involves providing documentation, passing some tests, and having a quick test call with a recruiter.
No more waiting 60 days before getting paid! With the Interpreter Network, you can get paid on the very first day of every month. You can also use any payment method, including bank transfers, PayPal, and cryptocurrencies.
Take calls from anywhere as long as you have a HIPAA-compliant workspace. No need for visa permits, paperwork, or procedures. The Interpreter Network staff will coach you to help you be fully HIPAA compliant.
Free training involving remote interpreting topics will be available to you. New courses are being released every month.
Feedback left by clients after a call can be publicly displayed on your ProZ.com profile. This will help you land more clients.
Whether you are just starting out or you are an experienced interpreter, the team will help you reach your goals.
Join interpreter events and meetups to check out what your fellow interpreters are up to. Network and have fun at the same time.
Interpreters connect to ProZ.com partner platforms whenever they are available. ProZ.com staff give interpreters information about what languages are being requested and when. Once online, interpreters may start accepting calls. Calls will come in on and off regularly. Calls may involve doctor appointments, consultations, medical examinations, etc. Calls may be as shot as five minutes or last up to two hours, so better be prepared! :D
