For the main part, being a Clickworker is about writing creative texts. There are plenty of tasks waiting to be processed. Clickworkers with sufficient writing experience can soon qualify as correctors. This qualification enables them to access and process more tasks.
But there are more ways of working as a Clickworker, for example as a translator or editor. Whether from your native language into another language or vice-versa, your task as a certified translator is to breathe life into numerous jobs. As a verified editor you are responsible for checking the quality of the texts submitted.
But how does the verification work? How can a normal Clickworker become an editor or translator and access new qualifications and jobs? Can you avoid taking some of the qualifications by presenting a very good certificate instead?
Qualifications can be acquired by uploading a certificate. Select the item “Upload certificates of employment” for translations or copy editing sections in “Jobs”.
A window with instructions that you will have to accept will open.
In the translations section you can specify three language combinations that you are proficient in. This is where the certificate comes into play. This does not include the CV with a “languages spoken” section. A reference from a previous employer that mentions your language skills or a graded university or adult education center language certificate. Only the above-mentioned types of certificates are permissible for the copy editing section also.
The certificate must also specify the language you are proficient in. You must have gained C1 European standard or above..
Please do not upload samples of your work. They cannot be directly assigned to an individual and we therefore cannot accept them.
We will examine the certificates that have been uploaded. This will be indicated with a “completed” in the work history section. You can start right away, as the case may be.
New tasks will appear in the job list for the languages specified. There might be times when there are no jobs available in these languages, but the certificate broadens the qualifications and promotes the scope of every Clickworker.
