Hi guys!

Has anyone worked for Lionbridge as a translator/proofreader before? I received an offer from them for a collaboration to work for them as a proofreader and they offered me a rate of 12 EUR/hour for reviewing 1000 words an hour. I was wondering if they are willing to negotiate their rates or is it carved in stone?

That rate is quite low, would be good is that could increase it a bit

picture task update!

Dear Jonathan,

We cannot acknowledge the reception of the files. But if your upload was successful, no need to re-upload.

All files are reviewed for quality assurance.

Once the files are approved by the quality assurance team, payments are released. If some files fail the quality process, we will inform you in the next 2 to 3 weeks.

Kindly wait at least two weeks to ask for feedback.

If you are interested in sending more pictures, we ask you to wait for feedback and permission. If we need more images then, we will inform you.

We thank you for your patience.
I got onto this at the weekend, but for me it wasn’t worth the time spent. I didn’t have most of the high end items, so was stuck on the low end $1.80 and a few $3 items. I probably took way too many photos and that alone took nearly 4 hours!Then I found the renaming took way longer on Windows. I ended up spending 4 hours on that then giving up. Will probably end up making £40 for 8 hours work, whereas the web evaluator was about £40 an hour.

yeah renaming on windows will have been a chore unless you use software to turn a few letters into a repetitive term so you can do it all in rapid fire succession

Got offered this by Lionbridge today, but not even sure what the job is. Does anybody know?

Subject: New Project Offer - Annotation

Hello,
My name is Marc-Antoine Le Page and I am a Sourcing Lead at Lionbridge Artificial Intelligence.

I am contacting you hoping that you might be interested in our new project.

We are currently looking for annotators, based in the UK.
Estimated start date: immediate

Estimated task duration: 2 weeks, with possible extension.
Workload: full-time
Employment type: contractor

Location: REMOTE (contributors must be based in the UK)
Compensation: $12/hour

Task type: Contributors will need to tag entities in short sentences on the customer tool. There are only 7 tags and they have good guidelines and examples. Workers don’t need any specific skill, but a background and interest in business, management, company structures, financial events would be beneficial, as the sentences they will be tagging are press releases about business news, product releases etc.

If you are interested and available, kindly let me know as soon as possible. I will then forward your interest to the team in charge and they will contact you with more details.
I would like to wish you a good day.
Kind regards,

MARC-ANTOINE LE PAGE
Sourcing Lead, Lionbridge AI

Probably not, as I work full time already. If I knew it was a super easy job like the web evaluator stuff I would, but I don't want to work for living wage when my normal job pays £20+ an hour.

I have received an email for photo/video work. Before I spend time on it, any tips to complete it correctly?
