Part-time work as TranslatorSome of my friends in Kolkata have advised me to work as Translator and earn money by translating materials/articles/letters, etc. from Bengali and Assamese to English. For this purpose, they have advised me to join Fiverr, a website.
In this connection, I would like to state that more than 20 years ago I joined as Translator in a panel of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare to translate petitions (for help) from BPL people. In that case, the rate of translation was abysmally low and I was not very much interested in part-time earning from translation. I joined the panel for doing some social service for Bengalis and Assamese. Later, due to various reasons, I became busy and left the panel.
But now I am again interested in this work, of course on payment basis. I would be happy if some other Members can properly guide me about professional and part-time translation work. I would like to know the prevailing rate. I am also interested to know how the Website, Fiverr, functions.
Thanking all in advance.
