Offers/Jobs

Why do I not see any offers?

The visibility of our offers is based on native language and rank. If you don’t see any offers, this simply means that the offers we currently have online don’t match with your profile

How do I know if I have been selected for a job?

If you are selected for the job you will receive an email notification with the good news from Edit-Place. Make sure your ‘Alerts by email’ in your profile is toggled on to receive email notifications. Read here how to edit information on your profile page.

How do I upload my test?

You can find the page to upload your test in the My jobs section. If you need to upload multiple documents, you will need to put them into a single zip folder.

I uploaded a test but I haven't heard back yet.

Due to the large number of applications we receive, the assessment phase can take up to 15 working days. If you haven’t heard back after this amount of time please contact joboffers@edit-place.com

Why is my job still 'pending' when I already delivered it some time ago?

Your article must undergo external proofreading, internal quality check, and then up to 15 days for the client to validate the article after delivery, so please be patient. If your submission is still pending after 20 working days, please contact your Project Manager.

Who is my contact while I am working on a test?

If you are have signed up for a job offer which involves a test, your contact is joboffers@edit-place.com

Who is my contact while I am working on a job?

Your contact in this case is your Project Manager. The name and email address of your Project Manager can be found at the bottom of the editorial brief for the job.

What should I be checking as a proofreader?

As a proofreader we would like you to take the following points into consideration when checking a text.

Brief: Is the text written or translated according to the instructions given in the brief?

Information: Is the information presented factual and accurate?

Style: Is the text easy to read? Is the content interesting and relevant? Do the sentences have a logical connection?

Spelling and syntax: Is the text grammatically correct? Are there any typos, missing words or spelling mistakes? Always check names of people or places and do not forget about punctuation.

When should I send a text back to the writer/translator?

You can send the text back to the writer or the translator if there are problems with:

  • The brief
  • The information
  • The style (Intelligibility, organisation of ideas or if text is not written straight to the point)

Correct the text yourself if there are problems with:

  • Style (vocabulary)
  • Spelling and syntax

When you send a text back, explain as best you can what the problems are so as to make sure that they will make the appropriate changes.
A proofreader should improve the text, if you are unsure whether something is yours to change, or should be sent back to the writer, please ask your Project Manager for advice.

Payments/rights

Which payment methods can I use?

You can be paid either by paypal or by bank transfer, you just need to keep your payment details up to date in your profile. There is a 2% handling fee for bank transfers, but none for Paypal transactions. Read here how to edit information on your profile page. (I would like to update information in my profle.)

What are your payment conditions / When will I get paid?

Once your work is delivered to the client, they have 15 days to review and approve your work. If they do not do so in 15 days, the work is automatically approved. Then, once your Project Manager validates your jobs, they will become visible in the ‘My Royalties’ tab of your freelancer space. You can then request payment by clicking on the ‘request payment’ button in order to receive your money. The transaction will always be processed on the 15th of the month following your request.

I have given you my payment details but I still cannot request my payment, why?

Make sure that your profile is completed and your work status (self-employed, etc.) is up to date. You should have a minimum of 20€ to be able to request the payment.

Can I have a copy of my contract?

“As a freelancer, you are not contractually bound to Edit-Place.

That said, each time you accept a job, you sign a contract for that specific job. Next time you participate in a job, not a test that is, you can sign and download the contract.”

Will I be paid for my test article?

If your test adheres to the brief and meets our editorial expectations, you will be paid for it, even if you are not selected for the final team. The test is always the same for every candidate on a single project and we never deliver test articles to the client.

Can I quote the work I did for a particular client?

Yes you can if you publish only a part of your own articles (10% of the content) but not the entire text.

Can I quote a client's name in a portfolio?

No, you cannot quote the client’s name.
