What’s our secret? Yes, there is one. We’ve decided to build a translation platform which would actually treat freelance translators in a right way. Unlike other translation agencies, that exploit poor freelancers, beat them down with low rates, unrealistic deadlines and requirements to work during nights and weekends; we took a more holistic approach. Translation Cloud enables our freelancers to earn more money per hour, have no commitments to deadline (how disruptive is that?!) and minimal barriers of entry (no software required – browser based).
Translation Services USA feels confident that our new product is going to make huge PR waves in the translation industry. Sometimes we feel that our industry is old and stagnant (even dying), but when we re-invent new high-tech tools such as Translation Cloud, the rules of the game start fresh and we begin to hear from lots of Fortune 500 companies, the ones we couldn’t reach for over 5 years! That’s the power of innovation. That’s the power of Translation Cloud.
I’ve heard once this phrase from a disgruntled translator who didn’t understand our new business idea. He left this dark comment on our blog: “Cloud my ass”. It was short and sweet. And it was bitter. Well, dude, what can I say to you now? We did it anyway and we are successful. Staying focused on a great product just like Steve Jobs; that’s what makes us different.
