Find and Claim a task on the TWB Platform

Good morning Alessandra, I’m new to TWB! This information is very useful. I’m trying to search for available tasks but I cannot see any (with or without language filter), do I need to do something in order to start working on projects?
Thank you!

Hello, I claimed a task but it did not appear the “confirmation button”; why is that happen?
Maybe I did not claim well the task? :thinking:
Thank you in advance for your time and answer.

Hi @abby.mont and welcome to TWB! :tada:

I checked your claimed tasks and I’m afraid that I didn’t find any task claimed by you :confused: it seems that it was a matter of seconds when you were about to confirm claiming the task and another translator claimed it just before you did :sweat_smile: but no worries, there’s always a chance to find new tasks, keep an eye on the homepage and the notification email you receive to catch another task soon :wink:

Hi @MCI and welcome to TWB! :partying_face:

I can confirm that everything is working fine for you :+1: :100: :white_check_mark: but now the homepage only shows the tasks available in the language pairs you listed in your profile, so now, with or without filters, you can only see the tasks in the language pair English to Spanish, and if you can’t see tasks, it means that there are no tasks on the time you’re looking :eyes: but if you keep an eye on the homepage and the notification emails you recive, I’m sure you’ll find some tasks soon! :wink:

I cannot find tasks either. Not only in my language pair, but no translation tasks at all. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for help…

Hi @Miruschki and welcome to TWB! :tada:

Actually the homepage now only shows the tasks available in the language pairs you listed in your profile, so now, with or without filters, you can only see the tasks in the language pair German to French. \That’s why I’d suggest that you add other language pairs, English to German, and French to German for instance :wink:

If you can’t see tasks, it means that there are no tasks on the time you’re looking :eyes: but if you keep an eye on the homepage and the notification emails you receive, you may find some tasks soon! :innocent:

I hope this helps! :sunflower:

Hello,
I don’t know what’s happening this morning but I cannot claim a task. I have tried with 3 or 4 different tasks and got the same error : Warning: This task can no longer be claimed, the job has been removed from Memsource and will soon be removed from here.
Is there a problem on the platform or is it just me ?
Thanks for your help

Hi @MarionF abd welcome to our community! :sunflower:

As you rightly said, there was a number of tasks that were posted and removed later due to the cancellation of the project. Otherwise, this is an exceptional thing that happened and there’s no issue from your end, so no worries :hugs:

Hope you have the chance to find new tasks soon! :dizzy:

Hello,

Could please anyone explain why I don’t have any tasks for translation / revision on my home page? I’ve put 4 languages and their different pairs to increase the range, still nothing

Dear Amra,
I am the new one here, could anybody help me with the platform? I don’t know where to find the texts.

Thanks in advance.
With best regards,
Jelena

Hello, It’s been more than one week I’ve registered, but nothing appears in my task stream, almost in none of any language. I would be grateful if you can help me solve this problem and find a task. Thanks for reading.

Hello, I would like to find out why is not possible to access to a task? Will really appreciate your help.

Hi @jkinzunga and welcome to our community :tada:

I checked your profile and everything looks in order, if you’d like to work on tasks with us, you’ll only need to make sure you follow the correct process to find and claim tasks, you can also refer to our Translator’s Manual to learn more about our workflow :notebook_with_decorative_cover:

It’s worth mentioning that the availability of tasks varies from time to time, I recommend keeping an eye on the homepage and the email notifications you may receive to see the tasks when they become available :innocent:

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out :dizzy:
