That’s why we have designed our platform with you in mind. Imagine a single location where you do everything - receive project offers that fit your unique skills, access intuitive CAT tools for free, and manage your invoicing with flexibility. That’s Bureau Works!

Here’s how it works
Sign up online

Set up your Bureau Works account with basic profile information, payment method and invoicing cycle, language pairs, rates, and much more.

Complete a translation test

Take a timed online translation test to show us your skills. You don’t need to have the most experience, or a degree from the top translation school. We want the best talent! Give it a try!!

Get oriented

Once you are accepted into the community you will want to get familiar with the platform. It’s pretty intuitive. But regardless, we offer help and tutorials to help you learn.

Know where you stand
The translator quality dashboard will tell you how your quality is changing over time and in what ways. You can see whether edits to your work are preferential in nature or related to fluency, terminology, grammar or accuracy.

What I like about Bureau Works is that I can do almost everything in one place. The navigation is very user-friendly so I was able to use it without any training since the very first time I logged in. Plus it made my life easier in terms of organization. Before I had to organize an agenda in which I controlled my jobs and had to set up reminders for all of them. Now I just check Bureau Works’ homepage and start working

Bureau Works is a breath of fresh air for any translator, proofreader and project manager out there. For me, the best part is the fact that the platform centralizes all of my tasks and the data I need in a single dashboard, allowing me to check specific job details, access the CAT tool directly, and give out QA feedback to translators, interacting with each of them directly through the platform on a daily basis. Another huge plus is the built-in quality assurance system, which uses feedback scores in the automated job assignment process to make sure the right job is always assigned to the right linguist, at the right time.

Bureau Works is truly an innovative platform, because it allows me to manage my projects (and my time) in an optimal way. The platform manages the entire translation workflow, from assignment to invoicing, in a simple and effective manner. It is akin to having a personal assistant that takes care quickly and painlessly of all aspects related to a translation project, minus the translation itself!
