Once you’ve passed our application process, our Translation Coordinators will contact you in order to schedule a start to your probation, which will last for two to three complete assignments.
During the probation period, you will receive regular feedback from our internal Language Specialists. Please note that you will also receive thorough style guides and glossaries, which have been created in order to help you to better understand how we work with Freelance Translators at Booking.com.
Whether you continue to work with us or not after probation, we will always pay you at the agreed rate for all translations provided during your probation period.
Compensation per word is mentioned in the job advertisement. Please note that the rate will vary, depending on the percentage of the translation memory matches. Our rates are fixed and non-negotiable.
After the Probation Period
After probation, you’re a fully-fledged translator for Booking.com. As this is a Freelance position, it is very hard for us to predict how much work we will be able to offer you. This will depend on the particular language coverage needed. However, if there’s a business demand in your language and you are available for work, we will expect you to translate a minimum of 5,000 words per week.
