Our world is becoming more and more connected each day. In this digital age, connections across country borders are standard and part of our daily routine. Now that distance is no longer an issue, the next thing to tackle is language. Businesses are keen to embrace new opportunities that arise in our digital, connected world. To tackle the language barrier, Skiwo provides them with interpreters on demand. If you speak more than one language, you can sign up for free, become an interpreter on Skiwo and join the community.
Skiwo is an easy-to-use, digital platform that serves as a connection between you, the interpreter, and the businesses that need your skills. Businesses are able to post assignments requesting interpretation services, detailing what language, dates and skill level they need. On Skiwo, you can search for assignments and choose the best ones depending on your availability and skill level. When you find an assignment that matches your skills and your schedule, you can set your own fee for the job and quickly apply.
We understand that sometimes freelancing is tedious and difficult to organise, taking up your precious time. Using Skiwo, you can keep track of everything you need to know and do! We provide you with an all-in-one management tool that you can use on your Android phone, Android tablet, PC or laptop. It is easy to use and helps you keep control over your interpretation jobs.
As an interpreter using Skiwo, you profit from various perks. The main benefit is the flexibility to manage your work the way you prefer. Our innovative technology allows you to hold video and phone meetings from wherever you are. If the assignment type does not require you to be on site, you save on travel time so you can schedule more appointments or enjoy some time out – it’s up to you!
The ability to use leading-edge video technology means that you can choose from a much wider range of assignments from around the world. You are not limited to the jobs in close proximity to your area. More opportunities for video assignments are likely as these types of interpretation sessions become more standard for organisations and businesses. High quality video is almost like being there, allowing you to use your skills of interpreting tone, facial expressions, gestures and body language to accurately reflect what the speaker is trying to express.
On Skiwo you can see all your bookings at a glance. When your assignment date and time nears, you’ll be reminded. If there are assignments that suit your skills, we will let you know so you can check it out and decide if you want to take it.
Set your own fee and indicate your level of qualification to receive the appropriate level of payment for your work. As Skiwo is an open, marketplace for interpretation services, you are in direct contact with the organisations wanting to hire you. This gives you control over the rate you want to accept for assignments, rather than an agency or other third-party.
Finally, Skiwo offers a clear and straight-forward automated payment process, which means that you don’t have to bother with invoicing and chasing up payment yourself. Once you successfully complete an assignment, payment is on the way to you. Think about the time and hassle that you will save.
