Q.
Was there any special reason for deciding to work as a translator in Flitto?
A.
I found it interesting how you can help people in need even if you are not a professional translator with a degree or etc. Also, you can learn a lot by looking at how other translators use different words. Of course, the fact that I can earn points and make profits by translation was a merit.

Q.
Then how could you work as an English-Korean/Korean-English translator in Flitto?
A.
First of all, I love English. I’ve lived in the U.S. for about 2 years in the past and my current job involves a lot of talking and writing in English. I think I use English about 50% during the work time. I love how I can use the language I love, earn profits and help people who need translation by working as a translator in Flitto.

Q.
In Flitto, what kind of translation request do you mostly deal with these days?
A.
Requests that are related to my field of work or that has to do with simply daily communication. Since I’m not a professional translator, I am currently working as a crowdsourcing translation only. When I get requests like e-mail translation that are directly related to what I do at work, I tend to be more thorough and careful with the translation.

Q.
Do you have any special story or episode you remember while translating?
A.
There was a translation request of an e-mail related to a business contract. The requestor kindly left a comment saying that it would be all thanks to me if the contact works out successfully. I wasn’t doing something big but I felt a sense of pride at that moment.

Q.
What do you think is the greatest advantage for working as a translator in Flitto?
A.
The biggest advantage is the fact that you can earn profits as a translator through crowdsourced service even if you are not a professional translator. Also, I can learn a lot by looking at how others translate the same sentence all differently in their style. Even though I am working as a translator myself, when I see some requests I often wonder ‘how would one translate this with appropriate English expression?’. In that case, I can get some tips and learn from the others from other translators.
