07What is crowd translation?

Crowd (aka, crowdsourced) translation involves human translation drawing from a huge pool of contributing translators worldwide. YarakuZen contracts with over 40,000 translators from around the world who are always ready to serve you. We offer three levels of crowdsourced translators, and the translation cost for each level is different.

08What do I do if I received a crowdsourced translation that failed or has mistranslated phrases?

Don't worry. Just contact us within 72 hours after the initial translation is done and we'll take care of you.

09What happens if my translation isn't finished within two days?

If a translator isn't found within 48 hours after you place your order, we'll let you know. If it's an availability issue, we'll give you the option of translating the document into English, then translating it from English to your desired language. Sounds good?

10What is Professional translation?

As the term suggests, Professional translation involves retaining professional translators for specific projects. Yaraku prefers hiring professional translators over crowdsourced translators for medical texts and documents that are heavy with technical vocabulary.

11Can I cancel a translation order?

Unfortunately, no. Once finalized, all orders for crowd translation and Professional translation are non-cancelable.
