Thank you all for your responses. I’m glad it’s not just me that finds it really hard work. Think I’m going to have to be a bit selective in the tasks I accept as some I just can’t get my head around. I’m surprised that I’m finding it so hard going because although the guidelines were long and very detailed I actually found them straightforward and logical. Now I’m working on it some tasks put me into a flat spin and I feel I haven’t got the foggiest what they’re looking for. On the positive side there are some straightforward short tasks that sometimes come up and they’re a breeze. Unfortunately I can’t rely on them to always be around and I’m struggling to get my minimum hours each week. Would love another straightforward project to come up so I could jack this one in, will keep applying to other projects and hope for the best.

It depends on your speed. The one I'm doing now is really tough and I don't see I can get near the hourly rate. They are also very hot on accuracy. It suits my lifestyle though. The chatrooms are really helpful and spending time reading through those can help. Which one are you going for?
Started doing this about 5 days ago. Not impressed. The transcriptions are torturous, the interface you have to work within is dire and I reckon it's taking me about 4 hours to do what they consider to be an hour of work. When I wrote to them with some queries, they just said maybe I got a bad batch. But the next one was no better. Doubt I'll stick it out - not going to make either minimum hours or required accuracy.

I'd rather be low paid by Rev where at least the transcriptions are interesting and the interface is straight forward.

I've previously had a job with Lionbridge but was let go, I am really in need of something badly now, when applying for Appen as well, should you use a different email than your Lionbridge one or doesn't it matter? Even with a new email my work market account would still be the same one.

Looks like you can apply to do the weekly shop project on Appen now too. I am thinking about it but I am a bit concerned that it is all rubbish stuff. I quite like that on the monthly one, you can get some really decent products which makes the whole project worth it.

If the end client is the same then I wouldn't use the same email address

I've had numerous invites from them but I don't like the idea of being tied down to something.

I wouldn't say you are tied down, as with everything freelance you can always just leave whenever you want ;)

Thanks you for your reply.

I initially registered with the same email address as Lionbridge, I've tried to register again with another email but they said I've got to login with the original account I made, I know I can't change the email so I don't know what to do now, but I really need to start applying for more jobs there.

Project Swatara

We want to see your objects!

For this project, using your Smartphone’s camera and our Appen Data Annotation Platform (ADAP), we would like you to take pictures and videos of specific common household objects. There are 108 specific objects that we are looking for.

For each object you select, you will be asked to take one picture and 10 videos, each being 10 seconds long, of that object, under specific recording conditions.

You can decide to complete only one set of submissions, complete all 108 or any amount in between.

For a set to be considered accepted and eligible for payment, the picture and at least 50% of the videos must have been accepted during the quality-checking phase.

Sounds horribly like that god awful 'take photos around the house' project I did for Lionbridge I think it was in 2019!
