To work as an online translator you will need to demonstrate bilingual or C2 proficiency in the languages you intend to work with (in the absence of a specific degree, language certificates are highly recommended).ย  If you have studied languages and have excellent linguistic-communication skills in one or more foreign languages, you could find a job as a translator. A specialised degree in translation and interpreting is certainly ideal, but as a freelancer, you could also find work without specific qualification. In addition to freelance work, there is also the possibility of working online as a translator in the audiovisual subtitling sector.


The editor is in charge of correcting and improving texts before they are published (online or on paper). In addition to checking the spelling and the text grammatical correctness, the editor also checks that it is easily readable, clear, fluent, effective and respects the style of the newspaper or publication site.

The choice is wide and depends on what you like best and what you know how to do best: you can give music lessons, teach your own language, dance, graphics and video/photo editing, or even cook!

Once you have decided what you want to teach, you just need to find the right platform to do it. There are plenty of language learning sites where you can apply to be a teacher (e.g. Preply โ€“, or you can teach your hobbies on Italki or even try creating video courses with:

  • Udemy (
  • Domestika (

ย Copywriter

The copywriter creates content for websites. In particular, it is about texts (articles, ads, newsletters) that the client needs to promote their business or offer a service.

To work as a copywriter, however, it is not enough to know grammar and how to write well. It is also necessary to know SEO rules (Search Engine Optimisation) and writing techniques that allow the text in question to arrive on the first page of Google. This is not a job you can improvise, but you can learn it by taking courses, reading the web and, above all, by practice.

If you know how to write and do online research, but lack the specific skills for this type of online work, you could always find some training opportunities such as internships or apprenticeships in the communication sector that could provide you with the basic skills needed to become a freelancer.
