I recently signed up for SOS Chat. It is a website with a network of freelance translators who translate short phrases and individual words for clients via chat. The program is not yet up and running, but according to the literature, it will be starting in May. Here is what SOS Chat has to say about itself:
"SOS Translator Chat is going to be launched in May. Until then, we are recruiting translators for all language combinations. Please contact your colleagues and let them know that a new company is on the translation market and so one more opportunity for them to earn money from translations. The more translators there are in the system, the more successful live chats for the clients!
SOS Translator Chat is an idea that has been developed due to the needs of clients who require translations on a regular basis: small translations, sometimes only a sentence, sometimes only a word that is needed in another language. When you register as a translator, which is free, the customer can chat with you about their translation request. Payment will be based on your price per minute, with or without the start rate, which you can set in your account. You, as a translator, will set your own prices and your own start rate. Keep your prices attractive as the client can see your prices and your qualifications. You can request the release of payment whenever you want via your online account.
