Here’s how it works

Sign up online

Set up your Bureau Works account with basic profile information, payment method and invoicing cycle, language pairs, rates, and much more.

Complete a translation test

Take a timed online translation test to show us your skills. You don’t need to have the most experience, or a degree from the top translation school. We want the best talent! Give it a try!!

Get oriented

Once you are accepted into the community you will want to get familiar with the platform. It’s pretty intuitive. But regardless, we offer help and tutorials to help you learn.

Start your first project

Bureau Works automates job allocations so that everyone in our community has a fair shot at being successful. Even if you are new to the community, the platform will give you opportunities to accept jobs.

Ongoing opportunities

Once you are up and running, staying busy is easy. If you stay logged in to Bureau Works you will receive notifications for job opportunities regularly and can take whichever ones work for you.

Grow through feedback

In Bureau Works we let you see all changes made to your translations and facilitate dialogue with editors and client reviewers. Only through teamwork can we create top-notch, client-ready translations.

Transparent engagements

Simplify your life! When you log into Bureau Works you can see all of your current and past projects, manage your invoicing, get useful feedback from reviewers. Everything in one spot!

Avoid pricing pressure

If you are tired of buyers constantly demanding that you lower your rates, give Bureau Works a try. We let you set your own prices - no questions asked.

Know where you stand

The translator quality dashboard will tell you how your quality is changing over time and in what ways. You can see whether edits to your work are preferential in nature or related to fluency, terminology, grammar or accuracy.
