Become A Textmaster And Earn Without Limit
With crowdsourcing adventures we are going to become occupied again but this time the niche is more specific than the involvement we had with LionBridge and limited to 3 distinctive positions. Field of play? Textmaster.
Textmaster is an international service whose company located in european territory and precisely in the beautiful city of Brussels, Belgium. It is a platform that connects individuals or companies looking for high quality work associated with copywriting, translation and editing. Therefore, you guessed it right, since the 3 positions we mentioned above concern authors, translators and proofreaders on request. The first impression of the site is very positive, designed very carefully, with nice colors and fairly friendly interface. Really enjoyable experience seems to be.
Let’s get on
The registration is for free of course, as we would never recommend you to try something which enquires money, and without big hassle we are already in, after confirming the email we used whilst registering our account. The atmosphere around us remains the same since the colors and the interface are used in the same way. You will need to fill out some fields demanding you to write something about you and your interests formed in categorical order but you can skip it for later. The text which describes yourself, must have been written in your native language if you are not a native English speaker, don’t forget this. It is a major peculiarity that this site has.
How it works
It’s very simple as you might have assumed but you certainly need to pass the initial assignment (test) in order to be able to begin with the paid assignments. The job offers will be visible but not accessible before your application is accepted. You can select all the three of the positions specified if you succeed to pass the tests of each one. Doing so, you are qualified for extra potential assignments and you can maximize the earning potential in this way. The language you work is not the English language if you are not a native English speaker and regardless your proven skill with one language you are automatically selected and can apply for the language you have chosen as your mother tongue to be. Translators can select extra languages other than the mother tongue they speak. For example, someone’s mother tongue is Serbian and knows very well Spanish. Then, they can apply for copywriting and proofreading in Serbian and for translation from Serbian to Spanish and vice versa.
Note: You have no intellectual right on the paper you create and deliver to the client who holds the full right on it.
Levels, Earnings & Payment
The earnings are depended of the task itself but generally depends on the type of level and membership you are. After registering you start from the ground and the lowest Bronze status. By successfully completing assignments you can level up to the highest status (Platinum). The other combined rank has three different levels (Basic, Standard, Expert) and this rank is given after the moderation team finishes with the first evaluation. Along the time your rank can be upgraded or downgraded based on your efficiency. Expert professionals can prove their skills sending their credentials beforehand to get benefit of the immediate upgrade to the expert level. The following table gives a hint of what you can expect to earn by a work which contains 100 words.
The high cashout minimum is not something we liked, especially in case you consider yourself one of those who have slim chances to come up with a frequent work line. You can request a payment once you have accumulated $70 and the only payment option shown is Paypal.
Except the profit out of your own work, the site gives you 10% commission when you refer a client who orders and pays for work to be done. You can get benefited from a specific client for 12 months only. After then, you are stopped receiving any commission by them.
The service is decent and expects quality by the worker as well as is open to almost everyone in the world (but must be able to receive payments via Paypal). It would be great if more options could be added such as bank deposit since the minimum required amount for requesting a payment is so high. Some people from the staff may get on your nerves and therefore if you feel that your skills deserve more, perhaps this site is not for you.
If you are fascinated by the service you can sign for an account using this link. Regardless of the landing page, you can choose a different territory from the one you landed to.
