Translating Your Language to English is Big Business – Interview with Harris
Making some extra money is never a bad idea. All of us have needs and wants that have to be satisfied in one way or another. In today’s world, there are so many opportunities for us to make some extra money. Unlike previous generations, the internet has changed the way we do things. In the beginning, most of our parents did not believe that we could use the internet to do different kinds of work and earn real money. However, time has proven them wrong. A huge number of people from Asia, Africa, and Latin America are now embracing this idea. They are participating in online jobs that generate a significant amount of money. What they have managed to accomplish is quite remarkable.
One of the best examples of internet success in Malaysia is Harris. Over the course of his life, he has spent most of his spare time in school translating documents online, which has brought him a lot of money. He never thought that such a thing was possible. When he just 17 years old, he decided to start translating documents for American companies on the internet. In the beginning, he did things on a relatively small scale and focused on his studies, but as time went by, he got more and more jobs. By being patient and working hard, Harris managed to find whole websites that provide listings of hundreds of available jobs.
In today’s world, everyone is connected by the internet. This has made translation a very big business. The truth is that a huge number of companies in the United States and other countries across the world need translation services, some of which include Indian, Malay, and Thai languages. They need this content for their websites, movies subtitles, emails and so much more.
Harris, and so many other translators make between $10 and $80 for each project they take. The only thing that limits them is the amount of free time they have in a day. In fact, some translators earn as much as $350 in a day. There is actually a photo that shows Harris holding one of his monthly cheques that is worth more than $12,058 USD, which is around 40,514 Ringgit.
When people found out that Harris made over 40,514 Ringgit in a month from different translating jobs, they wanted to know more about the young man. As a result, he was asked a few questions regarding what he does. The following are some of the responses he gave:

Do you have to be fluent in English?

Does it cost money?

The demand for translators from Asia, Africa, Latin and South America continues to grow with each day. This means more opportunities for those who want to make more money.
