Today I’m working on getting some of my poker sites translated into other languages. I worked up a pretty good affiliate deal with an online cardroom, but they don’t accept US players. That means I somehow have to find a way to get foreign poker players to a website where they can then click on an affiliate link.
This is not really the easiest thing for me to do by myself. I only speak one language. Sure, I know how to order a drink in Spanish and pick up a girl in French, but I have no idea how to say “I’m all-in” in Italian, o “raise” in Chinese.
Nope… it’s like the old joke goes.
“If you call someone who speaks three languages ‘trilingual’ and you call someone who speaks two languages ‘bilingual’, what do you call someone who speaks one language?” American.
That’s where a site like Freelancer.com, comes in handy. I’ve written about outsourcing sites in the past, but this one is the best I’ve found when you’re looking to get work done that isn’t strictly design work (for that, I strongly recommend 99Designs).
De todos modos, if you are a broke Italian poker player (or Albanian poker player, or whatever), and feel like making some money translating some poker content, check out the Freelancer.com website and bid on my translation projects!
