The qualification process – four steps
to membership in the ACT freelancer pool

Registration: We look forward to working with you. For the first step, please complete our freelancer registration form so that we will have all the relevant background information.

Contact: We review your profile and clarify any initial questions with you. Please understand that this phase may take some time.

Qualification: A mandatory part of our qualification process is a small test translation in your area of expertise. The test texts have been specially drafted for this purpose and are not taken from actual projects.

Onboarding: Once our Quality Assurance team has approved your test translation, our Onboarding team will take over and introduce you to working with ACT. This gives you the opportunity to get to know us better and ask any questions you have before things really take off.
