Introduction to One Hour Translation Review

If you have considered using One Hour Translation to translate documents for you, keep reading. This is our honest One Hour Translation review. However, before we get started, we would like to share the steps we took to investigate the company and write this review.

First, we researched 1 Hour Translation online. This revealed some pretty negative reviews and complaints from customers as well as people who have worked for the company. We searched for this translation service on the BBB. They are not accredited by the BBB. Further, there is one negative Onehourtranslation review and two customer complaints. We found the company’s response to the bad review to be quite self-serving and disappointing.

Regardless, we are always committed to conducting objective and fair reviews. While we keep the information we learn from our investigation in mind while we write the review, we will always keep our experiences with each translation service as the primary focus.

Services Offered

The services offered here are translation, audio transcription services, translation with editing included, and proofreading. We did not find localization services, website customization or other services. The missing services include captioning, voice over, and other work.

In order to conduct this review, we placed an order to have a 1200 word business translation service. The remainder of this review will focus on our experiences with this company.

One Hour Translation Pricing And Add Ons

We paid 104 dollars to have a 1200 word business document translated. We did not order any add ons. However those are available, but they definitely cost extra. One of the available add ons was to order rush service. We would like to note here that One Hour Translation is not a very accurate name. The only quick translation here is machine based. To keep things in perspective, the price we paid was somewhat higher than average, but it was not outlandish.

Quality of Services

Unfortunately, this is where things go bad in our One Hour Translation review. To put it simply our Turkish translation of business document was provided to us after the guaranteed due date. That was bad enough. To make things even worse, the document translation was simply not accurate. We reviewed it with a language expert who found several discrepancies and missing content. That’s not acceptable when a bad translation can have legal or financial consequences.

Pros & Cons

Here is a summary of the pros and cons we have discovered while conducting our one-hour translation review.

Pros:

  • Placing an Order Was Easy
  • Website is Well Designed And Easy to Navigate

Cons:

  • Machine Translation Used For Touted 1 Hour Translation Service
  • Poor Quality Translation
  • Late Delivery
  • Price Higher Than it Should Be

Summary

After taking the entirety of our experiences with this translation service, and considering our discoveries regarding others’ One Hour Translation reviews, we must conclude that this is not a service we can recommend. There are too many issues with quality, delivery of services, and pricing. If you are in need of translation services online, please consider another company. We believe stating otherwise would be a disservice to our audience.

Positive: Great terms for freelancers. I worked there for over a year and loved it.

Negative: It was one of the best companies for freelances, a few years ago. But as an in-house editor I faced a bunch of drawbacks. First, they pay a hilarious sum, all other is bonuses. Thus they encourage editors to find as many errors as possible in a paper to charge money away from translator. Next, they don't have a solid system to track who made what changes to the document so many editors can change the text and then claim they found a mistake in it. This creates a very unhealthy atmosphere within the team. I quit after working for a month.

Positive: -

Negative: One hour translation lies and conceals many details about their work! I'm positive the information about their clients they present on their website isn't all true. Anyway, our company will never be among their clients anymore! They failed us a super important project and currently we've been trying to file them but they are located out of the USA.

Positive: My order came late. I did expect that as it was large, but shouldn't they assess their own capabilities?
