How Does it Look to Work in Axiom Translate as a Freelancer?
Our pool of freelancer colleagues is vast and diverse. Although, our external contracts serve different industries, time zones, clients there are similarities in the way their typical day looks like.
For example, let’s take one of our freelancer colleagues with strong healthcare expertise, part of our Finnish language team and describe how a weekday of hers looks like.
It would be a day where she wakes grabs a coffee and logins to her PC. She works on finishing some of yesterdays’ editing and proofreading projects before she submits them to our in house quality assurance team for further verification.
11:00am CET is a common deadline for some of our projects.
After 11:00am while our Finnish team member is taking a break she receives a message from Kara (one of our project managers) who is asking her if she can help with another project for one of our North American clients. This time the deadline is in the begging of the next week and the task in hand is much bigger.
Our Finnish freelance colleague thn confirms that she can take on the task at hand and thanks Kara for trusting her with such a specific and mentally stimulating project.
While she is working on the project she is in direct communication with our operations team. All her clarification questions as well as queries around vocabulary and style are promptly answered by our team. Its 17:30pm CET now, our Finnish freelancer colleague needs to go to the nursery and pick up her 3 years old son. She than submits her invoice for the previous project on our portal.
Although this is not the only way how working as a freelancer with Axiom Translate can look like, it is fairly representative of how many of our freelancer colleagues spend their day while working for us.
