Translation Cloud, the Facebook application created by Translation Services USA, which allows freelance translators the ability to translate ongoing projects in real time using their Facebook accounts, releases their newly updated platform and design.
Translation Cloud was developed alongside Ackuna in an effort to provide translators with a quick and simple method to get paid for translating ongoing projects that have been submitted via Ackuna.
All the work is performed online, through the Translation Cloud app on the user’s Facebook page. Once the user adds the app by signing up at www.translationcloud.net, they can log into their Facebook account and start correcting short segments of text in their chosen language pair. If the text is translated correctly, the user earns money (in U.S. dollars) through their PayPal account that they attach to their Translation Cloud account.
Translations that are submitted remain in the system until they pass through three rounds of translation review and are deemed “Correct”. They are then stored in the growing database of correct translations.
This latest version of Translation Cloud features a design overhaul with updated graphics and a more user-friendly interface. Also, one of the more important features added is the new “Translation Rank” algorithm. This feature evaluates each translator’s performance and assigns them a numerical ranking. Translators who perform below a certain ranking are banned from the system and added to the Translator Blacklist at Cheating Translators. This feature helps ensure quality control of the finished product and prevent scammers from taking advantage of the system, thus allowing legitimate and qualified translators access to more projects. Maintaining a high Translation Rank may possibly lend itself to added bonuses for those translators in the future, as well.
“You work hard, you get paid. It’s that simple,” says Alex Buran, Founder of Translation Cloud and Ackuna. “I wanted to provide an easy way for translators to access more translation jobs. Translation Cloud allows legitimate translators to sign in at their convenience, translate as little or as much as they want, and earn money quickly and easily.”
Translation Cloud has already been a major success among the online community. Since its initial release in February of this year, there have been over 4,000 registered users and over 150 completed and paid projects. Ackuna has also shared in this success by reaching its 1 millionth visitor this week. These numbers will only continue to grow as both Ackuna and Translation Cloud gain more exposure.
