One Hour Translation uses the One Hour Translation MasterCard and PayPal as its method of paying translators.
Once the customer confirms that he/she is satisfied with the result, you will be credited according to the number of words you have translated. When you have reached a credit of at least 2000 credits ($20), you can claim and receive your payment through the control panel.
Once the credits are in your balance they are available for immediate withdrawal.
The base payment terms are Net+30 (e.g. at the end of the next month) but you can withdraw your funds any time you like prior to that.
Money requested prior to the base payment terms will be subject to a small early withdrawal fee. Early withdrawal fee is subject to changes and is specified on the convert money page and will be stated during the convert process.
Your One Hour Translation account is similar to your bank account in that sense, i.e. you can withdraw money from the account at any time.
On our regular payment dates (15th and end of month) There is no manual handling fee as payments on these dates are processed automatically.
Please remember that PayPal might deduct its transaction fees from what we pay you, according to your account type.
If a translation job is about to go over time, the translator can ask the customer for additional time. In most cases this is not an issue.
One Hour Translation allocates approx. 1 hour for every 200 words in the document and up to 8 hours per working day.
One Hour Translation provides Fast, High-Quality, 24/7 translations. We expect the translators to try and pick-up the translation task as soon as they see it in their mailbox. Once the translation starts there is a countdown timer that shows when it is supposed to be ready.
Our customers use our service to get fast results, so you have a time limit to submit the translation (around 1 hour per 200 words and around 8 hours per day). If you don't submit the translation within this time frame, the project will be re-opened for other translators and you will not be able to choose the same project again, nor will you get paid for the project.
Upon submitting the translation, the customer may ask you for corrections or clarifications. Your account will be credited as soon as the customer approves the translation.
