Im pretty new to the community, so i was just wondering if translators get paid for their work.
I agree with what "lambchopsil" says they don't usually get paid but this all depends upon the group.
Most translators will usually just translate for fun and because they are fans. Obviously someone has to do it, but not only that by translating for online groups while translating, they can learn even more about the language. So while some do pay you if not a little or if not a lot, mostly I would suggest doing it to learn more about the language and for the fun of it.
If you want to make money translating certain things, then I think you could get a online translation job that will pay you per translation, some people want sentences or paragraphs translated. While others want people for projects for all different kinds of things online. But if you want a legit job in RL then I would try looking at your town to see if they need anyone with multi-language skills, or just in translation in general.
