If you like listening to music and don’t mind typing I’ve got a pretty good (and fun) side hustle opportunity for you today.
Welocalize is a professional translation company and right now they are working on a project that involves having thousands of song lyrics transcribed. To get those song lyrics transcribed they’re currently looking for freelancers to help.
EDITOR’S NOTE (9/13/17) This company previously had issues with their payment processing and several payments were made late. To my knowledge (speaking with several WeLocalize contractors) payments have been/are now being made.
How It Works
When you create an account with Welocalize you’ll fill out your basic profile and choose the genres of music you like. You’ll download the Welocalize app (for Mac users only) and connect it with ITunes.
You’ll then be given a song based on the genres of music you chose. After you have your song you’ll type the lyrics into the Welocalize app while listening.
Here are the specific requirements needed to sign up with Welocalize:
- You must have a Gmail address to sign up
- You must have a MAC OS X (The Welocalize app is only available for Mac users)
- Have an ITunes account (or the ability to create one)
What It Pays
The pay is $4 per transcribed song. The average freelancer is earning $16-$20 per hour.
You’re free to work on as many songs as you like, for as long as you like, whenever you like. This job is completely flexible and there are no minimums. They have thousands of songs to choose from in several different languages. (If you’re bilingual you can transcribe songs in any applicable language you’re fluent in.)
You’ll be paid once weekly via HyperWallet. (If you’re not familiar with Hyper Wallet you’ll be sent instructions upon registering with Welocalize.)
