That's where EasyTranslate's quality rating feature comes into play, offering an invaluable tool for both customers and freelancers.The quality rating feature is more than just a simple feedback mechanism; it serves as a bridge between customers and language professionals, ensuring transparency and excellence in every project.

The EasyTranslate platform also allows you to provide more detailed comments about your experience.

2. Enhanced communication

Rating features often seem like one-way streets where customers leave reviews without further interaction. However, EasyTranslate fosters two-way communication by notifying freelancers about the rating and encouraging them to react. Leaving insightful ratings and feedback prompts dialogue between you and our freelancers fostering better understanding and collaboration.
