Once you have found the desired product, select the amount needed. Translations are counted in number of pages

Next select your language combination.  The source language refers to the language in which your document is written, or the language in which your event or appointment will be held.

How do I submit my document for translation?

After you have successfully completed payment, an upload window should appear. You can either add your file via drag & drop or select the file from your device. We do not require the original copy of your document for the translation. It is sufficient to simply scan or take a photograph of your document.

Don't worry! If you don’t have a copy of your document at hand, we will send you an email within 15 minutes of payment containing instructions on how to upload your document at a time more convenient for you.

After you have uploaded all of the relevant documents please confirm by clicking the blue button at the top of the window. Your documents will now be made available to our translators and the translation will begin.

How does the process work after submission?

Once you have uploaded your documents and confirmed your order, your assignment will automatically be placed on the lingoking Online Marketplace. All translators that are suitable for your assignment will be informed via email. If the language service provider has the capacity to take on your assignment, then they can accept it with merely a click of the button. You will receive an email updating you when a linguist has taken on your order.

Our Online Marketplace also provides a platform for you and the linguist to communicate with one another in case any questions arise.

Exotic and less widely-spoken language combinations can sometimes make it hard to find a suitable translator. If we are unable to find a suitable linguist over the online marketplace, then one of our Freelance Partner Managers will try to find one manually. However, if we are still unable to find a suitable linguist, you will of course be refunded in full.

Once the translator has finished translating your document, they will upload the completed file onto the Online Marketplace. If you are happy with the translation you can click 'accept order'. In the case of certified translations, the translation can only be sent by post once you have clicked this button and accepted the order.

What happens if a suitable language service provider isn't available to accept my order?

Exotic and less widely-spoken language combinations can sometimes make it hard to find a suitable translator. Unfortunately, at times it is also not possible to find a linguist for even common language combinations. If we are unable to find a suitable linguist over the online marketplace, then one of our Freelance Partner Managers will try to find one manually by personally writing to suitable linguists. However, if we are still unable to find a suitable linguist, you will of course be refunded in full.

Tip: please feel free to try again! It usually doesn’t take long for our linguists to once again have the capacity to take on new assignments.
