Thanks Jon much appreciated does definitely look like it’s worth a go ☺
Well I always think it's up to the person

If you have 2 hours a day to earn as much as you can online do you spend that time doing suveys and clicksites or do you do the work that is going to pay you the absolute most you can earn in that 2 hours...

Sorry if it's already been asked before - I applied with Leapforce back in July last year and never heard anything back, however, I have now gained a bit of web search evaluation experience with iSoftStone (currently working for them) so I wanted to try and update my application but there doesn't seem to be any way of doing this unless I'm missing something? Anyone any idea?

Not sure you can

All you can do it apply again with more relevant / up to date info!

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience of Lionbridge's renewal process? I've worked for Leapforce in the past and was always renewed before I chose to leave. I'm with Lionbridge now and coming to the end of my years contract. I know they never used to renew anyone on their 11 month contracts but this does seem to have changed. Are they usually pretty good at renewing raters with good scores? Struggling to find any information and there's not a great community for LB raters like there is at LF.

Hiya

The last I read online was that the 11 month thing has gone now and they keep people on (reviews depending obvs!)

Do you have an email address you can contact them on and ask at all? Usually with WSE work 'no news is good news' as they say!

I don’t know what project you are on, but map project just asked to accept a new T&C....... I was not working much for last two month, Lucy they still did not kick me out. I have too much project on uTest so don’t really have any more time.

Thanks for replying. Yeah they're pretty good at replying to emails so I will maybe get in touch nearer the time. My contract doesn't end for a few weeks yet and all scores have been fine so hoping it will be okay. First renewal is always a bit scary though isn't it.

Hey, I'm a LB map analyst. Interested in the comments here, are there other projects/companies that do pay more? Fed up of the terrible pay. I have other jobs these days so not sure why I keep hanging on with LB. I kind of like the work I suppose! Been doing it nearly a year. Not really able to commit too many hours a week though.

Have you done WSE work for LB or LF? That tends to pay a heck of a lot more with no commitment hours wise!

Anyone know if you are allowed to work for more than one of them? For example WSE @Leapforce and social media evaluator @Appen - both current roles on websites.

Thanks, what is it about WSE work that makes it better paid than map work. Is it boring/more difficult? Not sure I have the energy for all the Lionbridge studying again.

It’s paid by the hour and way above the U.K. minimum wage

There is a 3 part exam before you join so it is a fair bit of work to get “through the door”

Thanks, might keep an eye out. Do you think it would make a difference to me working on Lionbridge. Are places ok with doing both?
