A growing community
Gengo's translator community has doubled in size over the last year, and we regularly add new languages. So you're joining one of the fastest-growing translator teams in the world. With size comes bigger benefits, greater community, and more opportunities for jobs.
We look after our translators, because you're the backbone of our service. Our staff answer support questions promptly, and we always look at both sides if there's ever a dispute. Hesitant? We regularly receive top ratings from translators on Proz.com's Blue Board.
Our Senior Translators are experienced professionals, selected specially for their ability to communicate as well as their ability to translate. So if there are any problems as you work, you'll have a top translator knowledgeable in your language pair to help out.
We know that translation can be hard work! So we love handing out out small gifts (Gengo cookies, anyone?) and prizes like T-shirts to translators who go the extra mile. As our team grows, we're putting in more rewards and incentives for translators who really shine.
