A Fair, Ethical, and Transparent Meeting Place for Translation and Interpretation Services

eLingual.Net: Interpretation. Translation. Localization.


eLingual.Net helps clients meet with translators and interpreters committed to quality, value, and professionalism.  A place where clients get quality and professional services while translators and interpreters do what makes them happy.

At eLingual.Net, we believe we can improve how translators, interpreters and clients connect.  Beta since 2013, we understand the importance for our company to operate transparently and know that you want to join a business that works hard to integrate fair and ethical practices into all that they do.

Currently in beta phase, you are able to test eLingual.Net, give feedback and as a community we will decide together which features will be developed next.  Invite your colleagues to the community, while we work on developing more features you really need and want.  Please have a look, share your thoughts, ask questions and spread the word.  We appreciate your support.  Together we will do amazing things.


Our efforts are focused on making sure our members are happy and that we operate in a manner that's consistent with our brand values, quality, and professionalism.  We'll continue to travel this path and communicate with you along the journey. 

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FACING THE translation and interpretation profession TODAY?

One of the biggest problems facing the translation and interpretation profession today are unprofessional business practices. This is a major factor that is causing the deterioration in the quality of translations and interpretations worldwide. 


Another result of the bad business practices within the profession is the loss of countless professional translators and interpreters leaving the profession altogether, causing a decline in the value, quality, and standards worldwide. 



Few people appreciate the many years of study and acquisition of one or more foreign languages, expertise, skills, experience, education, and credentials.  The bottom line is that clear communication in the overall picture is priceless.

WHAT MAKES ELINGUAL.NET DIFFERENT?

We are a meeting place guided by one simple principle, "spread happiness".  Our mission is to spread happiness through happy translators, interpreters, and clients.


For the professional translators and interpreter, this means, no middleman, no job bidding, the freedom of setting their own fees, controlling their services, and choosing who they work with.



For the clients, this means working directly with ethical and professional translators and interpreters committed to quality and value.

OUR CORE VALUES

Happiness

We help translators and interpreters make a living doing what makes them happy.  We help clients get professional translation and interpretation services thus making them happy with the end result.

Fairness

Translators and interpreters set their own fees.   Keeping in mind that no two jobs are the same and some require more work or less than others.  Fees reflect value, quality and professionalism.

Transparency

All translators, interpreters and clients provide public information to verify their profile, which helps promote lasting business relationships between professionals and clients.

Respect

All members are treated with the same respect.  There is no individual member or other third-party service advertised, featured, ranked or highlighted on the site.  Members are featured individually, in their own profile. The translators and interpreters profiles reflect the individuals own merits, accomplishments, hard work, education, qualifications, certifications, experience, etc.

Kindness

We at eLingual.Net will donate a portion of the profits to honorable non-profits.  As we grow together, we are committed to give back to our local community and beyond.

Communication

Since language is our business we strive for clear communication!  We will always make every effort to improve.  Share your ideas, help us improve our family (info@elingual.net).  We encourage questions and comments on our social media outlets to maintain an open line of communication.

HOW DOES ELINGUAL.NET WORK?

Unlike traditional interpretation job marketplaces where jobs are auctioned off or given to a middleman, eLingual.Net works to find you the most qualified professional translators and interpreters in our network. Here’s how it works:
  1. You provide what's important to you in your job description.
  2. We'll recommend your job to members with the right skills and experience based on their profile.
  3. You get a qualified applicant pool to choose from.

We’re happy to help you find that next great professional interpreter. 

WHO IS CARMEN ARISMENDY?

Having worked with agencies, as an in-house translator-interpreter and currently as a professional freelancer, I founded eLingual.Net with the help of Pablo Raygoza, a fellow freelance colleague.  We had a vision of building a fair, ethical, and transparent meeting place that not only helps professional translators and interpreters support the profession that brings them happiness but also support the clients who work with them.


One a personal level, I have three wonderful kids and an awesome husband.  We live in beautiful sunny Los Angeles County in Southern California.  I love to interpret and translate, volunteer, write poetry, take pictures of my kids and the beach.  I believe that the best things in life are free.  Above all I enjoy sharing life with my family and friends. 


As always, thank you for reading and sharing my posts. 

Feel free to connect or email me, Carmen Arismendy.  I'm a professional Spanish interpreter-translator and founder of eLingual.Net.  I started the eLingual Network because I could not find a fair, no middleman, no job bidding, ethical and transparent meeting place for translators, interpreters and clients online.  The website is in beta phase and by no means perfect but it's a step in the right direction.
eLingual.Net's mission is to spread happiness worldwide through happy translators, interpreters and clients.
For the professional translator and interpreter, this means no middleman, no job bidding, the freedom of setting their own fees, control over their services, and who they choose to work with.
For the clients, this means working directly with ethical and professional translators and interpreters committed to quality and value.
Join our happy community, let's work together!
