What Is an Online Language Translation job?

Online language translation has reached a high level of demand in recent years. As markets become more global, business owners need ways to offer services and content to more people. Often, they employ online language translators to translate their content to languages spoken by the groups they are trying to reach.


This strategy is advantageous to anyone trying to influence a diverse range of people online. Even if the target audience understands English, they may feel more comfortable and satisfied with content that they can read in their native language. Automatic translation services, like Google Translate, are not suitable for this purpose. The text they produce tends to sound stilted, robotic, or garbled. That’s why it’s best to pay for the services of an experienced online language translator.


There are many reasons why someone might require the services of an online language translator. They may want to translate legal documents, government records, ads, blog posts, or entire websites from one language to another. Often, employing an online language translator is more affordable and efficient than traditional translation services.


Doing translation work online can bring in plenty of side income. Freelancing websites always have jobs available from people who need translation work. Some languages though are more popular than others. It is easiest to make money by translating from English to European languages or vice versa. The most popular languages are German, French, and Spanish, but it’s certainly possible to profit from translating Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Thai, and other languages. If you know another language, online language translation is a good way to earn additional income in your spare time.


Here are my recommended freelance websites where you can share your services and earn: Freelancer and Fiverr. You can check them out.

  1. This is a great opportunity to make some extra income. Unfortunately Iam not fluent in a second language but have been working on learning Spanish. My husband and I just moved to a new area where many jobs require that you be bilingual due to the large and diverse population. It’s good to know that there are also options like this to make some extra cash once I become more comfortable with the language. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. You’re very welcome Jen. Thanks for dropping by. Being an Online translator is really a viable option and I can vouch for that as I am one =) Muchas Gracias!

  2. Hey JR, I can vouch for the need to have real people translate work and not leave it all up to a program like Google Translate.

    I’ve studied Japanese, for example, and it is a very contextual language which is one of the hardest things for programs to work with since a lot of the meaning in sentences is left unsaid.

    And I don’t know about other languages, but in Japanese there are different levels of politeness. The translation programs usually give you a conversational translation, but if you’re going to be doing business then you will absolutely need to the the very polite form of speaking to potential customers.

    I have not done translation work online before, but I might check out the sites you recommended. I’ve used Fiverr to buy services in the past, but never to provide a service. Could be good!

    You mentioned that you are a translator for online work. What languages do you do it for?

    1. Hi Nick, Arigatou Gozaimasu =)

      In our globalized world, we really need human translators, and a brilliant way to capitalize on it to earn additional income is to be one. The machines tend to translate it literally without proper language context.

      It’s also great to try out my suggested sites. Though admittedly, there are a lots of them and I cannot mention all. I can only vouch on those I am a part of or have been involved with.

      As for me, I am a fluent both in English and in Filipino so that is my language pair.

      So there bro, if you want to earn a little bit more, Online Translation is also a legitimate way to do it.

      Thank you (English)

      Maraming Salamat po (Filipino)
