I am a freelance translator whom work from home while taking care of my child, doing my house core and cook.

So, Which job is my full time job? Or, which one is my part time? I have no idea too as a mom of two, wife of one, the daughter in law of a widower, the sister in law of the unmarried 50 years old lady.

I would say everyone has 24 hours per day, it just depends on how do we divide our time, it is the art of time management.

I will scarify some sleeping hours for finishing the translation job on time. And, sometimes, I will quit my cooking job and buy from the food stall outside.

Back to the purpose of this topic, I hope all the freelance translators here can support each other, like job-seeking, job introducing, quotation, and helping each other in understanding some wordings/ text under the context of some of the countries or cultures.

Me myself, are doing translation in English to Mandarin / Mandarin to English language pair, and from Malaysia.

I just have gotten a job offer  from Manta Translation, that can be opened to all the freelancer from the world, do have a look and apply directly.

Here is the link:

hi @peachpurple, just wondering that the Malay language that you mastered, is it Malaysia Malay or Indonesia Malay or else?
I am Malaysian Chinese, by the way.
Nice meeting you here.

May be we can work out something from here. As mentioned earlier, we can support each other, other than interact, chat, we can do more than than.

@cely, yes, you  are right. There are many translation cafe online, we can do some google searching and sort out some of them.

Anyway, some of them need to pay a membership fee, annually. And, most of them are in USD term.

It could cost more than 100 USD , which it is a little bit too much for us. Thus, think have to choose the one which can bring some jobs to us in order to compensate our cost.

@Ceci Chow I have done that for few individuals as one of my online friends referred me for this particular job. I did it for a Cryptocurrency site that wanted me to translate her program which included lots of coding etc in a message to her business partner. I translated from English to Hindi  that took me almost 5 hours but as she paid me $15 in my bitcoin wallet I was glad I did that. She had it done in 16 different languages including Mandarin. She appreciated my work as I had done it in a professional and literary version of Hindi language.

@sunny, dear Sunny you meant the currency trading website, right? Is it a Malaysia website or international one?

Was it a program that teaching people on currency trading? How to get start on currency investment and trading daily?


 It’s glad  that your effort is being recognized!


Just curious, how much is the value in Ringgit Malaysia or USD for 1 bitcon or 15 bitcon at that time or nowadays?


It is hard to get some one to do the English to Hindi  translation and a good one as there are less and less people learn Hindi and send their kids to the  Tamil school.


I should know you earlier for job referral. Let keep each other’s contact for future translation job purpose, is it ok? If there is any English into Mandarin job, you may refer it to me  as well.


As mentioned earlier, we should create more value from here other than interact and chat around. I think we can do more than that.

@Ceci Chow  One bitcoin is almost $600 but I was paid in Bit coin equivalent to $15 whatever was the price of Bit coin in US$ at that time. Hindi is not my mother tongue it is one of the man language of almost  1.2 billion people all over the world with slight different in spoken dialect. You can keep in touch with me on this site please. I will let you know if I find a translation job in Mandarin. But you can  join Upworkdotcom site that will give you tons of opportunities.
