💡 Translators hate translation tests.
Usually, translators are not happy to take translation tests, especially if they are urgent and unpaid.
As language professionals, we believe these trials aim to waste our time and energy.
Have you ever tried to see translation tests as a test YOU put your potential clients through?
Here below are three types of clients you should avoid like the plague: 💀
❌ A client who wants you to complete the test in two hours but sends you the results after two months.
❌ A client who expects you to translate ten different types of texts without giving you any context.
❌ A client who sends you a test unrelated to your specialization fields, even if you're applying for a specific role.
So, do you still think translation tests are a trap for translators? 😊
