How much can I earn with Setlr?

Here at Setlr we're about empowering you to use your skills to improve your life.

Machine translation is free, but we all know it will never be as good as you. Our clients (and your clients!) understand this, and that's why they're happy to pay you for your skills. But most of our clients can't afford traditional agency prices. They need translation that's better than Google Translate and cheaper/faster than using an agency. They need a polyglot friend! That's where you come in...

You have the language skills and you should be fairly rewarded for your hard work and your time.

Unlike traditional agencies, you keep the 'lion's share'. Setlr only takes a small platform commission for bringing in the clients (because we all know how expensive marketing is!).

We also believe you should be rewarded for proving yourself and doing great work. That's why we've built a system that allows you to boost your earnings. The more you prove yourself, the more you earn!
