Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Does anyone know if Lionbridge/Leapforce automatically reject people who have worked for Appen in the past? I've been rejected by Lionbridge (several times!) and never heard back from Leapforce and I've no idea which of their boxes I'm not ticking!

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Don't even remember it being asked when you sign up for leapforce

Did you get as far as doing the initial test on the site? Is it after doing that that you don't hear back from them?

Also can you show me the signup URL you are using ?

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Hi, thanks for replying. I can't remember the sign up link I used for Lionbridge - I think I've used a few over the years. It was probably something from the green site. The most recent was in response to an email invite from them to apply for a new project. I've never got further than a basic rejection email - absolutely no idea why.

I've just checked Leapforce and it seems they're still reviewing my application several weeks later. I just saw that several people had been accepted recently and assumed I had not but it looks like there is still a chance. I'm pretty sure that I did say I'd worked for Appen (I remember because I was afraid that would have an effect on the application).

Is Leapforce as good as Appen to work for (if anyone has done both?).

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Only work I have done for appen is transcribe work, I know they do web search evaluator work but it's not something I have done with them

When you sign up to leapforce you use this link to the best of my knowledge

https://www.leapforceathome.com/qrp/public/job/36


From memory I just applied and got the first test to do the next day or maybe less

Thanks for that - if I don't hear anything soon I'll try that link. I did the Web Search Evaluator work with Appen - enjoyed it!

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Anyone who has recently completed the exam, or can remember ...

I was doing task 3, and after about 6 questions I got the red 'no tasks available' message. I've been checking every few hours for the past 24 hours and it says the same. Am I finished? I know I won't hear if I passed until Monday, but do I get an email to say I have completed in the meantime?

Thanks

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

One of two things has happened here

you have got to the end of the questions (I can't remember how many there were on stage 3 - maybe someone who has so e it more recently can say)

Or

Sadly I THINK if are doing absolutely awful then the exam just finishes for you


I assure it's the former in your case as 6 lots of questions sounds about right

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

I felt I was understanding it well and doing a good job, we'll see though.

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

I'm not sure about Appen but I have worked for Lionbridge before and now Leapforce. So having been with one shouldn't prevent you working for another. But not sure if Appen is different.

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

I'm waiting patiently to see if I here back from Leapforce. Filled out form and completed 15 questions now just to wait and see if I'm through to next bit or not

Sure you will hear from them soon enough. Then you can enjoy cramming for an exam like you are back at school.

Re: Leapforce / Lionbridge

Stellajose: which did you find best - Leapforce or Lionbridge? Any pros or cons? You can pm me if you like. I've worked for Lionbridge just over a year ago and now I'm wondering which one to apply to in January.

That's right. I always submit mine on the 1st to ensure no payment delays
