Please create an account by clicking here. The app will guide you through the process step by step.
What information do I need to sign-up?
You will need an email ID and phone number from your country of residence. The email will be verified and used for sharing critical information such as new assignment notifications, document decryption passwords, etc. We suggest you use an email ID that you have access to on your mobile so you never miss an opportunity to earn.
The phone number you provide will be used to call and verify your credentials. Also it will be used by our contact center as your unique identifier, so please try to call us from the same number when you contact us.
Can a translator from any country sign-up?
There are limitations of transferring funds to some countries. Arabeasy will use your phone country code to determine which country you have signed up from. You will have to provide an bank account under your name in the same country for us to transfer your payments. Currently, we are able to process payments to Saudi Arabia, UAE, India, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt, and Lebanon. We are obviously working hard to expand this list and encourage you to sign up. We will reach out to you as soon as your country payment logistics are set-up in our system.
How do I share my qualifications?
On the screen after sign-up you will be asked to provide information about languages that you can translate to and from. In the initial phase, we are focusing on Arabic but please add additional languages that you may be proficient in. This will make it easier for us to send you notifications as we expand our language base.
You will also be asked to provide proof of your proficiency in both languages and any proof of experience. You should upload scanned copies of relevant documents. The more confidence you provide, the better will be your starting rating (please see section on ratings below). Some examples of documents are:
- Degree in translation that mentions the language pair you have provided
- Certificate, Bachelors, or Master’s degree in each language
- Experience certificate of working as a translator
When will I receive an assignment notification?
Once you have completed signup and provided your qualification information, our contact center will call you to verify your credentials. They will share information with you about the rate you can charge and log this information with your account. They will then activate your account and you can start receiving notifications.
Please be aware that as we are ramping up the platform, we will activate a selected number of translators. This is to make sure we can provide best quality of work to our clients and a good experience to the translators as well.
How much can I charge for my services?
At Arabeasy, we believe that you know what best to charge for your work. At the same time, we want to make sure that clients are paying for the quality they receive. Therefore, we have created a rating system where you clients may score you between 0-5 “stars” (Details on ratings included in the ration FAQs below). Using these ratings, we have created 3 fee bands (in USD/word) that are in line with the market rates.
Above 4.0 stars
0 to 4.0 stars
Below 3.0 stars
You are free to select any fees within the rating band you fall into. You will get more information about exact fee bands when you sign up.
What is a “Quick-bid”?
When a new assignment is posted, you will receive a notification with language of translation, format of document and number of words. You need to then open the application and submit a “quick-bid”. The “quick-bid” specifies by what date and time you will be able to complete the assignment if selected.
We want to provide our clients a great experience. As Arabeasy, we want to make sure that the clients are able to assign the work within one hour from posting the assignment. This doesn’t mean the work needs to be started right away. It only means that we encourage you to bid as soon as you receive a notification.
We highly encourage you to stay logged into your application and turn on notifications. This has shown to highly increase the chances of getting selected.
How much time should I put in my bid?
Enter the date and time by which you will be able to comfortably complete the work. Arabeasy will automatically calculate that in number of hours and display both to the client and to you as a countdown on your dashboard.
Please remember, it is more important to be on time rather than getting an assignment done quickly. Taking sufficient time will allow you to provide quality and on time delivery, which will improve your ratings.
