How to become a Kató Verified Translator?

Hi @Mariem_Kh :wave:

Thanks for reaching out and for taking the test!

It can take up to 4 weeks for us to receive the results, but once we do we’ll be in touch!

In the meantime, you still have access to tasks available to non-verified translators in your language pairs :smiley:

Thank you @faretto5 for moving the post to this thread and for pinning us :raised_hands:

Hi, there! I would like to become verified ASAP but only 1 out of my 4 completed tasks has been reviewed. How can I require a review for the rest of them? Thank you!

Hi @erika.kadlcikova, thanks for reaching out to us, this is a very good question :slight_smile:

At the minute, leaving a review is not mandatory, but we are very much encouraging our translators to leave feedback after they review a task. I am sure that you’ll receive other reviews soon and you’ll be able to become verified :four_leaf_clover:

However, please note that you still have access to most tasks in your language combinations even if you are not verified yet :wink:

I hope this helps, but let us know if you have any other questions :tulip:

Yes, I hope the other tasks get reviewed as well because it should not take more than a minute or two to provide the star rating, just like we, translators, are asked to do at the end of our tasks. Thanks for a speedy reply! :slight_smile:

Hi! I took the test to become a verified translator a month ago, and I would like to know when I will receive the results.
Thank you very much for everything you do and have a nice week :slight_smile:

Hi @Mariangelesm thanks a lot for your message :blush:

Unfortunately, we have a large backlog with the tests in your language pair, so it’s taking up to 8 weeks to receive the results. However, we are working on it and we’ll be sure to contact you as soon as the results are in :four_leaf_clover:

In the meantime, please remember that you can still access most tasks in your language pair :star2:

Thank you for your patience and support, Mariángeles! :pray: :tulip:

Hi @davidwilshin!

Thanks for reaching out and following up on your test. Unfortunately, we don’t have the results of your test just yet.

We have a backlog of tests in your language pair, so it’s taking longer than expected to get through them. But we haven’t forgotten about your test and once we have the results, we’ll be in touch :smiley:

In the meantime, you will have access to tasks available to non-verified translators in your language pairs!

Thank you for your patience and understanding, David :pray:

@ambra If we have completed the score 3.5 can we ask to upgrade our status to verified.

Hi @bilalwali5 :wave:

Thanks for reaching out!

We have indeed changed our verification system so that translators can be verified based on the reviews of their translations :smiley:

Once translators have several positive reviews on their translations, we will consider verifying them!

So, if I haven’t translated anything yet, I can’t become a verified translator?

Hi @Mariangelesm

Thank you for reaching out!

Yes, we have changed our verification system to remove the tests! Translators can now become verified once they have received multiple positive reviews on their translations :smiley:

However, we are working through the pending tests. I can see you previously took a test, so please don’t worry because we are working through the backlog of tests!

Hi!
I´ve signed up a week ago and my language pair is English to Portuguese (Brazil).
My e-mail notifications are set to “daily”, but I still haven´t received any tasks. And when I go to the home page no available tasks are displayed.
I read on some Q&A topics that it could be easier if I got verified, but with no translations available it´s not possible.
I´m wondering if there´s something missing on my profile or if there´s something else I should do to get translating.
Thanks!

Hi @JeffersonKR,
thank you for reaching out and welcome to the TWB community! As a Kato translator it might be more common not to find availble tasks, but at the moment there are no available tasks not even for me as a verified translator. I would advice you to be patient and keep an eye out.
Have a great day!

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the TWB Community!

Sorry to hear that you haven’t had access to any tasks recently. As the kind @faretto5 said, if you can’t see any tasks on the homepage then it means that there aren’t any tasks currently available in your language pairs!

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