How do I create a profile on KUDO Interpreter Marketplace?
If you are already an interpreter on KUDO Interpreter Marketplace for KUDO Meetings, the only thing you will need to do is be available for the Zoom meetings and accept them when you get the invites. If you have never been added to KUDO Interpreter Marketplace, you will first have to attend our weekly webinar for Interpreters. You can sign up here. Once completed, KUDO will send you all the information to complete the Interpreter’s Journey and attend mock meetings to gain experience. After this process, you will be able to ask for the KUDO Pro status.
How is KUDO Interpreter Marketplace working?
Marketplace on Zoom is working the exact same way as the current KUDO Interpreter Marketplace does: once the client has created their meeting and selected the languages needed, their request will be sent to KUDO and a reviewer will be able to check it and pair interpreters. Then, interpreters will receive a notification that they will have to accept. Once this process is done, the client will see the initials of the interpreters booked for the meeting.
Can interpreters contact the meeting organizer if they have questions?
There is no way to have direct contact with the meeting host.
How am I paid?
Once the meeting is over, go to your interpreter interface on Marketplace and click on ‘assignment complete’. The amount of your mission will be credited to your wallet on Marketplace. To transfer it to your bank account, you will have to select ‘make a withdrawal’. You will receive the payment within two weeks.
If the client cancels the meeting, what happens?
If the client cancels the meeting more than 48 hours before, there are no additional fees. If it is between 48 and 24 hours before, they will be charged 50% of the total amount. If it is less than 2 hours before, they need to pay 100% of the total amount.
You will receive a notification if the client cancels the meeting.
If the meeting lasts more than one hour, can I choose the interpreter I’ll be paired with?
The system itself is not going to choose the interpreter, but the reviewer can choose the interpreter you will be paired with as long as the reviewer knows who will be working together.
