Find and Claim a task in Kató Platform

Hi @nikaroseb

Welcome to the TWB Community :hugs:

I’ve just had a look and your profile is set up correctly. However, as the kind @faretto5 said, if you can’t see any tasks on the homepage then it simply means that there are no available tasks in your language pairs!

The homepage will only show tasks in your language pairs. But don’t worry because we post new tasks all the time so I hope you’ll be able to find something interesting to work on soon :smiley:

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions, Annika!

Hi! I’m sorry for using this created topic but I need help!

Today I signed up as a volunteer, but I am not able to visualize any task to carry out the translation, and I don’t know what to do…

Hi
You can sign up for daily updates or check-in regularly to see if there are any.
Not all tasks are available at all times.
Hope this helps

Hi @heinrickprofeta

Thanks for your message and welcome to TWB!

You can find lots of useful information in the Translator’s Toolkit to help you get started :toolbox: :hammer_and_wrench:

Additionally, you can only see tasks on your homepage if there are tasks available in your language pairs! So, if you cannot see any tasks then it simply means that there are no tasks currently available.

But don’t worry because we post new tasks all the time, so keep an eye out :eyes:

As @soke35 has said, you will also receive email notifications when there is a task available in your language pair!

I hope this information is helpful, let us know if you have any other questions!

Hello everyone,

I signed up a few days ago and my language pairs are English-French, French-English and Spanish-English. However I check every single day if there are tasks available for me (I have chosen to receive notifications daily) but every time I see that I’m not given any tasks. How to receive more tasks?

Thanks for reaching out! Firstly, welcome to TWB :star_struck:

I can see that your profile has been set up correctly! The reason you can’t see any tasks is that there are no tasks currently available in your language pairs

Hi @mhsiddiqui

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to TWB :star_struck: :star2:

I’ve moved your post to this thread where you can find guidance on how to find and claim tasks!

Before you start working on a task, you must first claim it! This lets other translators know that you are working on the task :+1:

Once you claim a task, you will be able to see the source text in the online translation tool, Memsource!

If you’d like to check out our Translator’s Toolkit, it has lots of useful resources to help you get started with TWB :smiley:

Hi @dlovan1

Firstly, welcome to TWB :star_struck: :star2:

I’ve moved your post to this thread here where other translators have asked questions about finding tasks!

If you can’t see any tasks on the homepage then it means that we haven’t got any tasks currently available. But don’t worry because we post new tasks all the time :smiley:

You can also increase your email notification settings to Daily by following these instructions, so you’ll be notified whenever a new task is uploaded!

I hope you’ll find an interesting task to work on soon, Dlovan :star_struck:

Hello everyone,
I have a problem, my homepage doesn’t show any tasks in any language pair, it has been so for nearly a week, is this normal?

Hi @Amira1

I’m sorry to hear you haven’t been able to access any tasks recently!

Hi everyone,
I’m new here!
My language pairs are English - Italian and Spanish - Italian but there are no pairs available at the moment for me.
How often do you think they will be available?
I mean, could it be I have to wait months to find something available according to my language pairs?
Because I see here there are mostly translations required from a source language into mostly African languages…

Thanks in advance!

Hi @irenedellasiega

Firstly welcome to TWB :star2:

We do post new tasks all the time, so keep an eye out :eyes:

I can see that you’ve set your email notifications to Daily so you’ll be notified when there are tasks in your language pairs!

Hopefully you’ll find an interesting task to work on soon :crossed_fingers:

Hello,
I’m new here too! When I am not logged in I can see lots of translation tasks displayed, but when I log in they all disappear. Is there a step of profile verification I should have done in order to be able to access them?
Many thanks for any help!
Polly

Hi @PDG

Firstly welcome to the TWB Community :star_struck:

I just checked out your profile and it’s all set up correctly!

You can find all available tasks in your language pair on the homepage! If you can’t see any tasks, then it simply means that there are no tasks currently available.

But keep an eye out because we post new tasks all the time :eyes:

Hello !
I have a question, I have been registered here for almost a week now and I’m not getting any tasks on the main page, did I do anything wrong? or do I have to meet a certain requirement?
I see some of the comments mentioning a test but I am a little confused, would anyone answer my questions please?
Thank you for your help.

Hi @Nour98, and welcome to the TWB community! :wave:

If you didn’t find any tasks on your homepage, it simply means that there are no available tasks in your language pairs.

And If you’d like, you can sign up to receive daily task stream emails. You will receive an email when tasks are available in your language pairs. :envelope_with_arrow:

As far as I know the test to become a verified translator is no longer required and your verification will depend on several good reviews and feedback.

You can find out more on this thread :arrow_right:

Have a great day! :dizzy: :sparkles:

Best regards. Lilav.
