Find and Claim a task in Kató Platform

How can I find tasks in Kató Platform?

All available translation tasks will be displayed on the Kató Platform homepage unless you use the filter options. You can set your language pairs on the homepage by selecting your source and target language from the drop-down list. Please note that the drop-down list only includes languages for which tasks are currently available.

If no tasks are currently available for your language pair/s, please make sure to set up email notifications so you will be alerted of new tasks as soon as they become available.

How can I claim a task?

  1. Click on the task title to get to the task page
  2. Click Claim in the top right corner
  3. Review the information on the download page (screenshot below)
  4. Click ‘Yes, I promise I will translate this file’ to claim the task

You can also watch our video tutorial for more information.

Hello,

Is it really necessary to have a verified account in ProZ in order to start translating? Because I’ve just registered and I dont know if I have to do that.
Thank you in Advance

Hi @Daniela014, thank you for reaching out! No, you do not need to be verified in order to start claiming and working on tasks :slight_smile: However, some tasks are restricted to verified translators only, so verified translators will have more access to tasks. If you’d like to learn more about becoming verified or submitting a translation sample, you can do so here.

Hello,

Before claiming a task I wanted to preview it, to be sure I can translate it, but I can’t. I just have the “Yes, I promise I will translate this file” button.
I there another way to preview the file?

Thank you for your help

Hello Veronique, it seems that there is a glitch for some projects and the platform doesn’t allow preview, but this should only happen in very rare instances. In this case, you can always write a message in the corresponding forum thread to ask the PM to give you the file to preview

Thank you Ambra.
I will do so

Hello! most I wait for an email before claiming a task?

Hello! No need to wait for an email, you can use the filter option to find available tasks and claim them :wink:

Alright, thank you very much.
