Crowdsourced Translation Service

Crowdsourced Translation is the ideal solution for timely, comprehensive translations of non-critical brand content. It works by dividing documents into smaller sections, which are then sent to multiple linguists at the same time – meaning much faster turnaround. This method has added value for security-sensitive documents as no single translator ever sees the entire content.

Key features and benefits

Fast turnaround

Content of up to 500 words is typically returned within two hours.

Human quality

Our integrated API and built-in quality tools eliminate workflow inefficiencies and boost consistency and quality across projects. Linguists are automatically sourced, based on your project requirements.

Competitive pricing

Transparent per-word pricing, at a fraction of the cost of traditional agencies, gives your business a competitive edge in new markets.

Status tracking

A status indicator is available through the translation dashboard, so you can monitor the progress of your project(s).

Simple payment method

Crowdsourced Translation (CST) is a pre-pay service. On acceptance of an instant quotation, you’ll be redirected to ‘sage pay’, where a transaction receipt will be provided.

Delivery notification

A notification is sent when your translated content is available for collection. You can retrieve your content easily by logging into your Globalization Management System portal (thebigword GMS®).
