We take care of everything so that you can focus entirely on translating
Translators are at the heart of our business. This is why we at Alkemist do everything in our power to ensure that you are satisfied with the work process and your income.
Our commission, which is 10% of the amount charged to the client, covers all the services that you would have to take care of yourself if you operated as an independent translator. Before you sit down and start translating, you would have to find work by advertising your services, and when a client calls you, you first have to agree on the details of the work, wishes, deadlines and payment. Only then – once you have found a client and handled all the project management – can you start translating. At the same time, you may not find a client right away. Sometimes, you have to wait a while for a translation project.
We at Alkemist do all of that instead of you. Yes, if you operate independently, you will earn the total amount charged to the client, but this freedom also comes with all of the above-mentioned inconveniences!
We are well aware that your work is frequently underappreciated on the market. We try to make up for this by negotiating with clients to ensure the highest possible price and by charging as low a commission for your work as feasible. We continually try to provide you with as much as possible – the best possible income, a constant workload and security, as you always receive your payment, regardless of when the client pays for the service.
We do everything for you so that you can do what you do best without a care!
