Welcome to my Real Translator Jobs review. I heard everyone was talking about this so I thought I would take a look to see what all the fuss was about…
Product Name: Real Translator Jobs
Overall Ranking: Bad
First take a look at this fake video:[YouTube video no longer available]
Doesn’t that sound like an actor reading a script?
What their Website Claims
When you first go to their sales page, it’s all very bright and eye-catching, with some essential information to tell you what it is about. However, there isn’t much text, and there isn’t a video, so they aren’t going into much detail at all. It looks like you need to give them your email address to get any further information.
But before we go any further, I want to take a quick look at this first page and give you my initial reaction to it. I’m going to do that by breaking it down into chunks.
First up, we have this dramatic heading:
Yet underneath this there is this:
Straight away I can’t help but think that this is somehow illogical. Surely this doesn’t make sense in terms of supply and demand. If there was really an urgent demand for people, that would mean there were LOADS of companies who just can’t find people. To then say that there are limited positions kind of implies the opposite, don’t you think?
Then we have this in the top right corner:
WOW! Get paid as much as $100 to translate a text document or up to $35 to translate an email? Woah, if they are paying that kind of money, surely they must be looking for only the best, really highly qualified translators?
So, let me get this straight:
These companies are willing to pay someone, with no experience, as much as $100 to translate some text? Even though Google Translate does a pretty good job of it these days.
Those business owners are idiots!
So I’m going to put my name and email address into their sign-up box, just to see what’s on the other side. I can’t wait to find out! I’m almost bursting with excitement and anticipation!
Okay, here goes…
Ahh, I see…
There is some more information on the second page, but straight away I can tell by the style of it that it has been created by the same person/people who created Get Paid to Draw and Get Cash for Surveys, both of which I was unimpressed by.
So there’s almost no point in continuing with this, but in the spirit of being thorough and fair I will. So let’s take a look at what the 2nd page tells us…
First up, another dramatic headline caught my eye:
Over 400 companies? So the line about “limited positions” really was nonsense! That doesn’t sound like limited positions. That sounds like almost unlimited positions, from hundreds of companies who are stupid enough to pay $100 for an inexperienced person to translate a document.
There is a bunch of text beneath that headline which basically just says the same thing but with more words. They once again repeat that there are load of companies wanting people to translate for them, and that you don’t need any experience. There are apparently THOUSANDS of companies and THOUSANDS of jobs available. Yet let’s remind ourselves what the first page said:
Anyway, moving on…
Much of the rest of this 2nd page is taken up with eye-catching graphics claiming how much you will be able to earn. Apparently one person earns $181,007, and they say that if you translate just 4 documents per day you will earn over $80,000 per year!
There’s not much more to say about this 2nd page, other than one final headline which really jumped out at me:
DON’T WORRY IF YOUR ENGLISH ISN’T PERFECT???
Okay, I’m NOT going to be diplomatic here:
Hey business owners! If you are running a business, and a key part of that business involves having documents accurately translated from one language to another, and you are willing to pay people who don’t have any experience, and who have bad English, as much as $100 to translate documents for you, YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!
Put plainly, if you, the reader, are intelligent enough to get past the bright colors and dramatic headlines, you will see that this sales page is total and utter nonsense!
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
Look, I’ve seen enough scammy “make money online” products and “legitimate online jobs” to know how to spot when something just doesn’t add up. Once you’ve seen a bunch of these kind of things, you start to know the kind of signs to look out for. Sure, occasionally there is a product that is genuine, and there are signs that can indicate that it is real. However, many of them are scams, or just don’t quite live up to what they claim. There are clear signs that you should look out for if you want to try and spot a scam.
If you are interested, you can follow along with me now as I assess “Real Translator Jobs” against these key criteria…
What factors would indicate that it is genuine?
- Does it sound realistic? – No, it doesn’t. I don’t believe that companies are willing to pay $100 for someone with not very good English to translate a document.
- Do they admit that you have to work? – Yes, they are saying they are actual translation jobs rather than just some get rich quick scheme.
- Do they sound genuine? – if there is a video, I try to get a sense of whether the person sounds genuine. As there was no video at all, I cannot assess this.
- Can you take a look inside? – No. As there was no video, there was no quick look inside like you sometimes get with other sales pages. This wouldn’t be a problem if there was a free trial.
- Is there a free trial? – No, you will have to pay the $34 if you want to try it.
Genuineness score: 25%
What factors would indicate that it is a scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – Yes, it really does. While I’m sure it is totally realistic to get paid as a translator, the way they present it on their sales page seems like some kind of fantasy.
- Do they promise you will get rich fast? – No, they don’t actually promise this. However, they do claim they you can get paid a lot to translate documents even if you have no experience and don’t have perfect English.
- Are they secretive about how the money is made? – No, they are upfront that it is from translating documents.
- Do they say it has “never been seen before”? – No, they don’t actually claim this.
- Was there a video recorded by an actor? – No, there wasn’t even a video though.
- Do they claim it doesn’t require work? – No, they do admit that it involves actually working to translate documents.
Fakeness score: 25%
What are other people saying?
Is Real Translator Jobs a Scam?
Well, as you saw above, I took a look at the signs that can indicate that it might be genuine, and came up with a score for that. Then I took a look at the signs that might indicate that it’s a scam, and came up with a score for that too. Normally I combine these two opposing scores together to create an average rating which then gives an idea of the chance of it being a scam. This would have given it an overall score of 50% chance of being a scam.
However, in this particular case, I was so struck by the contradictions on the sales page when I first looked through it, that I have decided to take into account a 3rd score: the Contradiction Score, which I put at 100%. So, take an average between this 100% contradiction score and the 50% I came up with for the positive and negative signs. Then I also took into account the fact that other people are saying it’s a scam, so that makes the overall score:
83% chance of being a scam
My advice is to stay away from this one
