Hi All, my name is Rob from Aus. Thank you in advance for taking your time out to read this.
I have been looking into the idea of using Gengo as a part income substitute. My plan is to drop one day of full time work (I currently work a Mon-Fri 9-5 job), and do translating on that 5th day instead (I don't intend to continue full time work and additionally take up Gengo). My question to the experienced translators here is - are there enough jobs that you could make a reasonable wage across a working day or week (in small jobs here and there)? My primary language is English, second language Mandarin/Chinese. I am an inexperienced translator. In a days work in my current employment, I earn $150-200 AUD. It would be ideal to make this same amount through Gengo, however I appreciate that may possibly be unreasonable when starting off...??? I've no idea, hence this forum post :)
If anyone can provide some insight, I'm sincerely grateful.
