If you can speak multiple languages fluently, then that’s a great way to earn an income online as a translator.
There are a lot of companies and professionals who want to convert their websites to other languages, and they need translators to help them do this.
Some people might need to translate their English websites to other popular languages such as French or Spanish, whereas other people might want their website content to be translated from those languages into English.
To get started as a translator, you can go to freelance sites such as Elance, Odesk or Fiverr and create a profile that explains everything you can do. Then simply wait for people to contact you, or you can submit your proposals to people who have posted a job offering on those sites.
There are also other sites that cater specifically to translators, such as TranslatorsBase.com, so you should also go to those sites and register a profile there as well.
What you can also do is offer other related services in those other languages you speak fluently. So if for example you speak English and Russian fluently, perhaps in addition to translating content from English to Russian, or Russian to English, you could also offer to write Russian content for people.
If you do a good enough job, you could end up being their go to guy or girl for any work they need done in that specific language.
