Thank you for your interest in
If you are good at understanding what is written in English on our web site, and you are good at writing in your own language, then we would like to make you an offer that will pay you well for combining those two skills.
It is out mission to reach out to as many serious dog owners as we can. We want them all to be able to enjoy their dogs for the wonderful gifts they are from Nature - and we want these dogs to enjoy their lives with their owners. Just as dog training works best with a serious reward, so does marketing. We are aware that our efforts to "spread the word" will be much more effective when we reward the people who are actively helping us doing it. That's what our Translator Program is all about: rewarding you for helping us!
You can expect us to be honest as dogs.... So let us explain how this Translator Program works in a way that will benefit both you, us, and the people we want to reach out to.
The last thing first: We have good reasons to believe that the information we have available for dog owners has serious value - if they bother reading it and using it. The feedback we have on file to confirm this is overwhelming. You must obviously agree - otherwise, you wouldn't bother checking this out...
Let's make this clear: K9joy® is a business, not a charity with endless access to cash. We are operating on a for-profit base - otherwise, we could not exist. So, honestly as promised, we have to make some money on spreading all this information... This entails that we also have to protect ourselves again losing money! Now, losing money goes fast when you provide some crappy service or pay others for some useless junk, so we have a legitimate need for protecting ourselves against this, as we hope you can understand and appreciate.
We do make our life-sustaining cash-flow on selling our books and videos online, through the web site. No matter how we turn things around, this has to remain an objective of all activities that make our mission possible. Money is a tool, though, nothing more. An important tool, we must add, whether we like it or not....
When we make money, it is reasonable (at least for us) that those who help us doing this also make money. Win-win - a strong business principle. When you join our team of translators, you become part of that mission - and deserve a share, also in the financial rewards. Some people do not like this; they think it is more honorable when valuable information is given away for free, without limitation. They just tend to forget that doctors and nurses, and everybody else who provides a valuable service, including soldiers, all work for pay. Nothing wrong in your doing it too! But, of course, if you want to return your paycheck to us, you can always choose to do so...
Now, we have a lot of information we would like to have translated to a lot of languages.... This makes us very vulnerable, business-wise. In two ways:
The solution to both those two concerns is that we would much rather pay you much better than "standard"!
Sounds tricky? It isn't. It just takes seeing things in a different way than the traditional "I hire you" perspective.
As you can understand, we do not want to hire our translators on a fixed-fee basis. First, we have no way of checking on the quality of their work. Next we have no need for a translation, if we cannot also find someone to market our information in the appropriate language, so our need for the translation is strongly linked to our possibilities of having it marketed!
We look at things this way: If you do a good translation, whether you are a certified interpreter or not, then people will appreciate this information when they get it - and come back for more! And that coming back for more, we know from experience, results in sales, sooner or later.... In other words, if your translation is good and it gets marketed well, then we will see a corresponding increase in our sales. On the other hand, if you make a crappy job or the marketing does not function, then we make no money on that translation...
As you can see, the key to the win-win proposition is that your pay should be linked to our sales!
When money comes in from sales, we are certainly more then willing to share with those who helped us getting that sale! We walk our talk on this with our affiliate program, which basically pays 50% of all gross profit to our affiliates, leaving us with 50% to pay for also running the business....
Is it fair to share 50/50? We think so. We hope you agree. If not, doing business with us is not for you...
So, we have basically three parties involved when we talk making money with our information in a foreign language:
Now, your task, the translation, is a one-time job. When done, it is done. The marketing is an on-going thing - which we know takes a significant effort that generally involves much more work than what is involved in doing a translation.
In the publishing industry, an author of a good book should generally consider himself lucky, if he can negotiate a deal with the publisher that will give him an 8% royalty on the sales. A few get 10%, and I have never heard of anyone who gets more. And that is typically on the wholesale price, certainly not the retail prices, which the publisher rarely can control.
But we will offer you significantly more, even for your translation! As a matter of fact, for our commercial publications, we typically pay royalties in the order of magnitude 12-15% to our translators, on the retail price of a download... Now, if you want to multiply with your estimated sales, you can figure out how much that will be - we will leave that to you, as we have no clue what "estimated sales" would be in your language.
We, will, of course, still pay our affiliates the usual 50%, so those translator royalties are taken out of K9joy®'s share of the income....
Also, in contrast to what it standard in the publishing industry that leaves all marketing completely up to the author, we do have an infrastructure in place for selling your translated works, or for using them for yourself or others to make sales: our affiliate program is exactly that.
Here is how our system works, when you translate one of our books:
We hope you can see the win-win in this way of doing things. If you do well, we do well. If we don't do well, then you won't either. We depend on you, but you depend on us only to the degree you choose yourself! However, we feel confident that, with this system in place, you are not going to cheat on us either, as we don't have to pay anything until you show us that you work is worth it.... But then, we pay without limits! And none of us have anything to lose..
This hopefully makes sense, as far as our commercial publications goes. But translating a whole book is a serious commitment. Maybe you wanted something less demanding? We got that too....
You can also make money on translating articles or web pages!
It works this way:
This last possibility is an indirect way of making money, but it works! The good news for you is that you can limit the amount of work you want to do to be no more than what you feel you can handle. There is only the commitment and the time limit you set yourself.
This offer is valid for all the following:
As you can see, we do not put restrictions on you. You can set your own pace. But the pay will be in accordance with what you do. You can choose to do a lot - and make a lot of money. Or you can keep it as a little hobby on the side - and make a little extra, in complete privacy. That's completely up to you!
