Stratcore’s translators are academically educated professionals who are dedicated to their careers. They translate from one or more languages into their mother tongue. They are specialists in certain fields and keep themselves updated within these areas. Basic computer skills are a must, with special emphasis on word-processing programs and the retrieval of information from the Web. They also keep up-to-date with current affairs and try to stay abreast of IT developments. They approach their work with an attitude of perfection and pride and only undertake assignments they are fully qualified for. And of course they always meet deadlines.
Translators’ accessibility and email vigilance
An active Internet account that can be used for e-mail functions, browsing, uploading and downloading files is a requirement we take for granted. Due to our focus on speed, accuracy and quality, we require that members of the Stratcore Network keep a regular daily check over their e-mail accounts. The more use we make of your services, the more vigilance you’ll need to maintain over your e-mail account.
Stratcore payment policy
Stratcore will inform the translator of the amount of remuneration for each assignment. Payment is made to the translator’s specified bank account within 30 days of the assignment’s completion. As a Stratcore translator you are self-employed and you have a registered company. The company’s VAT number must be visible on any invoices sent to us.
As a chosen member of the Stratcore Network, we are always inclined to defend the competence of our translators. If, however, questions arise as to the quality of the work and our proofreaders agree that a translation is unsatisfactory, the translator will not receive full remuneration. In such a case, the remuneration would be proportional to the percentage of any extra costs incurred.
We will not ask you to do a free test; however, when asked to do your first assignment, a stringent evaluation will be made. Therefore, your first job will be debited a small fee to cover our extra costs in grading your work (sworn translators are an exception here).
