Writing in Wordapp

Writing in Wordapp allows you to monetize your language assets. Simply register here, choose your native language, install a spell checker, and complete the lessons (≈ 5 minutes) to get started.

As a freelance Writer in Wordapp your job is to submit a perfect text that satisfies the instructions, without any spelling or grammar mistakes.

You must, of course, write a completely original text by yourself. Do not copy from another source – we will know that you did, because all texts are automatically checked by a plagiarism scanner.

The spell checker might not catch all spelling and grammar mistakes, so always proofread your text thoroughly before you submit it. By reading it out loud, you will also detect awkward sentences and repetitions. Switch to ‘Preview’ mode and read your text once more to see how it flows, and to get a better overview of how it will look.

  • Submitted texts are sent to Editors, who make sure of their quality before submitting to the Publisher.
  • If the Editor finds problems with the text you have submitted, they will return it to you with feedback on how it can be written better.
  • Don’t take it personally if a text is returned! Almost all new writers get texts returned – this is just a part of the learning process.
  • Listen to the feedback. The Editors have been writing in Wordapp for a while, so they have written and received feedback on plenty of texts. This means that they know how to give good feedback. By following the feedback carefully and learning from your mistakes, you will get used to the writing process in no time!
  • If you do not agree with the feedback you can “submit with message” to the Editor explaining why you do not agree.

Finally: Getting paid!

Once the Editor has approved your text they assume the responsibility for the text, so your job is done. You’ll get paid once the Publisher (the client) approves the text. The Publisher might send the text back to the Editor first if they are not completely happy with it. Read more about the payments here. Good luck writing from distance and being your own boss!
