How to make money online when your first language is not English

Happy New Year! 🥳

I know I am a bit late for this haha but I was busy doing… I am not sure what I did. Let’s pretend I had important things to do ok?!

Our topic for today is how to make money online when your first language is not English.

When English seems to be more attractive

Since you are probably a big fan of mine you already know that I am from Germany but instead of becoming a super hero in the make money online world of my country I decided to do everything in English.


I just didn’t like the German make money online market and influencers. 😅 I thought I speak and understand English anyway so I can have customers worldwide.

No matter if you have the same reason like I have or another one, this post should give you some hope.

You do not have to be an expert

The first important point to know is that you don’t need to be perfect. I mean look at me, look at my blog, I probably wrote over 200 000 words in a foreign language and I am pretty sure that some of my sentences are horrible to read for native English speakers haha.

But it doesn’t matter. You don’t need to be an English speaking expert.

If you want to be successful with affiliate marketing or in the make money online niche in general it’s more important that you are authentic, that you care about your followers, that you provide value and great content.

Who cares if your English is perfect or not when you help people and improve their life with your products?

The only thing which matters is that people know, like and trust you.

Practice, Practice, Practice …!

Now you might still feel a bit lost because you can not express yourself the way you would like to which is totally relatable.

Sometimes I also thought to myself that everything would be much easier if I could explain things in German instead of English.  But the way I managed to handle it was by practicing. Yes I simply started writing blog posts and consumed tons of English content and videos and got better and better.

Don’t worry I am not here to tell you just that but it’s an important part of it.

A miracle cure for google translation

However there is another big reason I’m writing this post. A few months ago I scrolled through TikTok and found a random guy who recommended this translation service.

I don’t know about you but I did not know about this translator. All I had was Google translation and a few other sites. And I guess we all know how bad Google can be..

Therefore I tried this one out and was really surprised. It translated everything extremely well, way better than other services.

This can be your solution if you are still afraid of making mistakes. Just use this translator and you are good to go. You can write entire texts in your language and will receive a nice English version in a few seconds.

You can even start a blog if you don’t have one already and publish nice posts with it.

Nevertheless, there is a problem. It seems like this service is not available for all languages yet.

If your language is not included remember what I said before. It’s not that important. Nobody is perfect. Have the courage and show the world who you are.

Be smart and you will make money no matter what

When you are still afraid of publishing content or writing emails in English you can also just search for done for you systems. That means you get access to make money online opportunities where someone else does all the work for you in the background while your only job is to get some traffic to a link.

I used a few of such systems in the past already and at the moment I can recommend this one.

[*Update November 2021: This opportunity doesn’t exist anymore. The problem with such systems is that they appear and disappear within 6 – 12 months. The only man who is online for over 10 years and where you can be sure that he will not go away anywhere soon is Dean together with his team. Just recently they released a new course. I took a look inside, it’s insane, I paid thousands of dollars for something like that a few years ago and you can get it for such a small price. Additionally you get access to coaching. Launch your business within 7 dayshighly recommended by your best friend ever Tobi.]

And remember language doesn’t matter, only your mindset does. 👊


PS: I will publish new posts more often again from now on.

PPS: In case you are wondering I’m still writing my posts without translator because to be honest I’m just used to it already and I believe it would be more difficult for me to come up with German sentences first. 🤣

PPPS: After writing this I just realized myself that I was using linguee for a few years already and that it is connected to DeepL. 😆
