    Frequently asked questions

    Check out below the top three most frequently asked questions by linguists. Please also consult our extensive FAQ page following the link farther down below.

    How much can I earn as a translator working for lengoo?
    We love languages and we believe linguists should be compensated fairly for their work! Our payment model is designed to ensure that you always receive appropriate and fair payment. lengoo calculates your payment based on the price per word in the source text. This price varies depending on the language combination, the complexity of the source text, the required processing time, and the overall length of the text. Depending on the assignment, this ranges from €0.06 to €0.12 per word.
    How many job offers can I expect from lengoo?
    The number of translation requests that you will receive depends on your language pairs, seasonal fluctuation, and most importantly, the quality of your delivered translations. We can unfortunately not give you an exact answer to this question. In general, the number of translation requests is higher for more frequently spoken languages such as English, Spanish, or French, and a bit lower for less common languages such as Hungarian or Croatian.
    How does payment work?
    We offer two different models of payment and accounting. For every job you perform for lengoo, we will automatically generate a credit note as a pdf that contains all relevant information, such as price per word, total amount due to you, name of the document you translated, your address, and the job ID. We will issue one collective payment combining all funds due to you from a given month on the 15th of the following month. We can transfer the funds to your bank account in Euros or make payment via PayPal. Alternatively, you can also create your own invoice at the end of each month and submit it to us to [email protected].
