FAQs: Registration

We have a three-step registration process:


  • Enter your contact details.
  • Specify your language combinations, subject area and language service type.
  • Upload your application documents, including your CV and references/testimonials.


Once you have completed these steps, you are registered on the platform.  

A lingoking team member will then check your profile.

Registering on our platform offers you the following advantages:


  • You can communicate with the lingoking team at any time.
  • You also have a direct line of communication with clients (anonymised).
  • You can accept new orders whenever it suits you.
  • It allows us to expand our customer base by taking on orders from new clients.

Anyone looking to translate for lingoking must meet certain criteria. To add you to our platform as a freelance translator, we need certain documents from you, such as certificates and references, which we will then review.  


You can upload these files on the platform and rest assured that any information you share with us is data-protected.


Registration guarantees smooth communication with the lingoking team as well as with customers.

We care about delivering impeccable quality to our customers. We cannot assume that all applicants are qualified translators or interpreters. That is why we need proof in the form of a degree and reference letters.

You need a translation or interpreting degree from an ATA-certified university/college or several years of proven work experience.


After your registration process, our team will review your documents and contact you to discuss the next steps.

All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory. This means that you must fill them in to continue the registration process.

To make sure that our systems display the delivery or start date of an order in your time zone,  we ask you to set your time zone when you register.


For text translation orders, the delivery date will be displayed according to your time zone. The time you see may differ from what the client sees, depending on their time zone.

FAQs: Profile

Uploading a profile picture to the platform is not mandatory. However, seeing a face and knowing who you are working with makes the collaboration process more pleasant.

Only the lingoking team will be able to see your profile.

FAQs: Matching process

You can log in to the platform at any time. Under “Enquiries”, you can see all available jobs that match your profile. You will also receive an email whenever we post an order on our platform that matches your language combination.

We cover all language combinations, however, order volumes for a particular language combination can vary.

Either there are no current jobs in your language combination, or you have not yet been accredited.

For fixed-price orders, you will receive an email with all the order details. As soon as you click on “Accept”, you accept the order under the conditions stated and the job becomes binding.

FAQs: Orders

Once we have verified your skills, you can see all the translation jobs that match your skills and start accepting new orders.

Certified translations to be submitted in Germany can only be performed by a translator sworn in Germany.


Different regulations apply depending on the state in which the translation is required. The client should check on the translation requirements with the competent authority before placing the order. If no such information is available at the time of commissioning, please ask your client which certification they need (e.g., German certification, Austrian certification, etc.) before executing the order.

If you are unable to carry out the assignment for valid reasons, you are first obliged to find a replacement who can take over the assignment for you.


If you cannot find a replacement, please let our team know as soon as possible.

Once you have accepted an order, you can no longer cancel it.


If you cannot complete the order for a valid reason, please let us know as soon as possible.

We will do our best to fix the problem as soon as possible.
