Crowdsourcing your project using Ackuna is the best way to get your app or website translated for free, and more accurately, than any other free translation tool on the market.
While the crowdsource feature is the most popular option on Ackuna (it is free, afterall), there are some times when waiting for the crowd to translate your app is not the most viable solution for you.
Ackuna also offers a paid professional translation option as an upgrade for those who require the most accurate and fastest turnaround time for their localization. For the paid professional option, instead of your project being uploaded to Ackuna's website and displayed publicly, it is sent to our team of project coordinators who will assign your project privately to a single professional translator. This ensures the utmost privacy, quality, and speed. Translators work at about 2,000 words per day, so depending on the length of your project, you may be able to receive your finished translation within 24 hours.
Creating a New Professional Translation Project
If you haven't done so yet, the first step is to create an account. Follow the onscreen instructions and you'll be all set. Once you have an account, login.
On the homepage, click on the 'Professional' button in the top right of the screen.
Fill out your information including your Name and Email address
Choose the project type from the dropdown menu:
- Document Translation
- Certified Translation (any legal documents for use by government agencies, i.e. birth certificates, transcripts, marriage certificates, drivers licenses, etc.)
- Website Translation
- Software Translation
Next, choose the source language of your project. This is limited to one language, whatever the original language may be. Then, choose all the target languages you want your file to be translated into. If you want your project translated into all of them, you can choose the Select All button at the top.
Finally, tell us more about your project in the description section. You should provide any additional information about your project in this section. The more information you can provide, the better it will be to provide you with an accurate quote.
When you are finished, click the ‘Submit Quote Request’ button. One of our representatives will contact you within 24 hours via email with a price quote and reference number. Quotes are provided free of charge, and there is no obligation to order. If you do decide to order, our representative will inform you as to how to make payment for your professional translation.
You have now learned everything there is to know about ordering a paid Professional Translation project through Ackuna.
