Your benefits at lengoo

Present yourself as an expert in your field and strengthen your profile

Every translator creates a personal profile, allowing them to receive jobs that perfectly suit their expertise and specialist knowledge. You can thereby continually strengthen and develop your profile – and let clients see your special skills. This way, you can distinguish yourself from the rest and show that you are the best fit for this job.

Communicate directly with us and the clients

Questions often arise while translating. Ideally, these should be answered as quickly as possible. On our platform, you can directly ask a client or our team questions via the comment function. This saves time and helps you avoid tedious communication chains.

Trust our matching technology

With our matching algorithm, we always find the best translations for you, ideally suited to your skills and based on your translation history with lengoo. This means that we can provide you with jobs that are similar to those you have already successfully completed. As a result, you will be able to work faster and more efficiently.

Optimized processes make your work easier

We have developed a process that not only supports the delivery of your translations but also takes over invoicing for you. It makes your work easier and minimizes the chances of inadvertent mistakes. Additionally, you can directly communicate with the proofreader and efficiently solve outstanding issues.

Develop yourself and your skills

We believe in constructive feedback. We therefore consistently evaluate your translations and transparently and openly communicate improvement possibilities. Our ranking shows how your work compares to that of others and motivates you to keep making progress. We regularly offer webinars in which we share information on a certain technology or a special topic with you.

Work with glossaries & reference texts

Our system easily and securely provides you with glossaries and reference texts. This helps you meet a client’s expectations and assure the highest possible quality of your work.

Profit from additional earning opportunities

We are working on integrating additional services (including the creation of multi-language texts and subtitling) into our platform. As soon as we have established these, many further interesting projects will be waiting for you.
