We've thought that it would be nice to include something aside from Word and PDF documents. Lots of people struggle translating their MS PowerPoint presentations, so we've created a tool that can handle that as well.

And it feels great! We've had a tremendous success with a referral program on GGLOT, so I figured, why can't we just do the same on DocTranslator?
Today, we've launched the affiliate program where you can earn $5 for each successful referral that would join Doc Translator!

It only took a few days from someone to place a first order! It's only $10, but still I feel like I've accomplished something useful that people can appreciate and pay for.
We've added a paywall only to documents that exceed 5,000 words, so most people could still use it completely free for smaller documents. 5,000 is a very generous amount. For 300 words per page on average, that's over 10 pages for free!
It's been almost a month since we launched an online document translation service for Word, Excel and PDF documents: doc-translator.com
The service grew pretty popular and our members have already translated contents worth of 10 million words. That's a tremendous number.
But these were free users. Of course, that doesn't count. What counts is whether these users will continue using our website after we install a paywall!
So, we've been pretty generous. We wanted to continue offering a free tier for documents less than 5,000 words and charge only for larger files as it takes up more resources. The goal is to get a first paying customer! Google Ads are launched. All tests are done. Now waiting! Fingers crossed! Would you root for us?
Are we onto something? I guess we are!
Just two weeks after launching, free online document translation service www.doc-translator.com has gained 600 sign-ups and one day spike of translated words has exceeded one million!
If you are a classical translation agency such as Translation Services USA: https://www.translation-services-usa.com/, that daily number exceeds the total monthly number of words translated by humans. That's a lot. If that would be priced at $0.20/word, that amount would cost our users: $200,000.
The future belongs to AI. 🔥
While in beta, my newest SaaS startup doc-translator.com is still free. It allows to translate any .docx document from one language to another with help of advanced neural machine translator.
We're now at 300 signups and growing steadily. People try our tool very cautiosly. They can't comprehend why we are offering it free and look for some flaws, lol.
It's fun to watch how quickly a free product can grow.
Launched last week and announced on IH, Doc-Translator.com began to attract users almost instantly.
Why? There is no paywall and no word limits. People can upload all sorts of documents and translate them automatically preserving original layout, image, fonts and styles. There is no such attractive alternative at the moment and we feel like total pioneers!
Yes, we are starting from the low base. Just organic growth, some referral marketing from the existing user base and some inexpensive Google Ads. That's about it. Seeking our ramen of profitability using low denominators as a well bootstrapped down to earth startup.
The next goal: 1,000 sign ups!
It helps to save time and money on document translation services by outsourcing it to automatic tools such as DocTranslator. The original layout is maintained including images. 60 times cheaper and 288 times faster.
