The Envato Tuts+ Translation Project is a community-driven initiative to help our tutorials and articles reach as many people as possible.
English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, but it’s far from being understood by everyone! Through translating our content into as many languages as possible we hope to fully open our doors to the whole world.
How Can You Get Involved?
Do you have a solid grasp of English and written fluency in another language? If so, and you’re willing to get involved, we’d love to have you translate some of our content!
Every post on the Envato Tuts+ network shows a list of available translations. If your chosen language hasn’t yet been done, you can click the link in the sidebar to claim it.
How Does It Work?
The process is straightforward. Begin by finding a tutorial you’d like to translate, then click the link in the sidebar.
Tip: if you’re in need of inspiration, take a look at this list of tutorials we’re particularly interested in having translated.
After entering your details and agreeing to the terms you’ll be taken to Native; an online translation platform.
Translate the original into your chosen language. If it’s too much to do in one go, you can save your progress and come back later to finish.
When you’re done, submit the finished translation so we can publish it and share it with the world!
What’s in It for You?
We pay our top translators, but there are plenty of reasons you might want to be a part of this project:
- You’ll be helping others learn from material they might not otherwise understand.
- You’ll gain exposure and recognition for your work by being listed on posts you translate.
- Many of our translators feel it’s a very effective way of learning! Pick a subject you’re interested in and learn while you translate the content.
The first few translations you complete for Tuts+ will be voluntary. Once you’ve published three translations, of varying length and of acceptable quality* you’ll be invited to join the payment scheme. The more translations you publish, the higher up the earnings scale you’ll climb! Here’s what the scale looks like:
|Short post||Medium post||Long post|
|Bronze (3+ translations)||$3||$5||$7|
|Silver (earned $90+)||$5||$8||$12|
|Gold (earned $300+)||$9||$13||$18|
We define post length as being:
- Short post: Fewer than 1,300 words.
- Medium post: 1,300 words or more, but fewer than 2,100.
- Long post: 2,100 words or more.
Your earnings are recorded and can be viewed, along with a statement for all your payments, on your Native profile page. At the beginning of each month you’ll be paid for the previous month’s translations.
We currently make payments via PayPal and Payoneer. Other payment platforms are on the roadmap.
Quality is of the utmost importance to us. We take on board feedback from our readership, social media followers, and translation community to determine whether translations meet our standards.
