Freelancer Violations and Account Holds

You are expected to comply with all Translance Terms of Service and the failure to do so can result in account holds. Account holds lead to account interruptions, and consequences could include the inability to continue working on Translance and the loss of your hard-earned reputation.
Knowing and following your obligations when using Translance is essential for you to thrive on Translance and earn Top Rated status. If you notice unsafe behavior, don’t hesitate to contact our support. Together, we maintain a vibrant and safe marketplace.
Here are the most common violations (and how to avoid them):
• Identity Uncertainty and Account Sharing: Be yourself! Provide your own accurate and verifiable information and use a clear photo of yourself. Don’t allow anyone else to use your account and don’t ever log into one of your clients’ accounts on their behalf. Instead, have them add you to their team with the appropriate permissions. Respond quickly to all requests to phone verify or ID verify.
• Receiving Payments off Translance: Always receive payment through Translance. If a client proposes to pay you outside of Translance, decline and let us know.
• Failing to Perform on Your Contracts: When you accept a project, you promise to complete the work and to deliver high-quality work. In addition, the you must accurately describe your business, your skills and qualifications, and the services you offer. Misrepresenting your abilities or failing to fulfill your contract responsibilities can result in low client satisfaction and payment disputes.
• Multiple Logins or Wrong Account Type: Use the same login for all work on Translance, whether you’re selling your own services as a freelancer, managing an agency, or hiring others as a client.
• Contact Information Sharing: Keep contact with potential clients inside Translance. Your profile can’t include your email, Skype contact information, or links to any sites that include a way to contact you outside of Translance. This includes a link to your personal website or a third-party profile or certification (like LinkedIn).
• Spam and Harassment: Treat everyone with respect and professional courtesy in all communications. Tailor your applications to the needs of each job and client. Don’t send the same cover letter repeatedly or excessively message anyone.
• Feedback Abuse: Great feedback is earned, not forced. Don’t pressure clients to give you good feedback, and don’t withhold work until feedback is left. It’s OK to let clients know that you strive to provide high-quality work and to earn a good rating, or to ask for feedback to be left.
Account holds for any of these reasons will be counted on My Stats and disqualify you from Top Rated status for 90 days after your account is resumed. We strongly suggest you review the full Translance Terms of Service.
