Hi Yamina, thank you for registering with TWB, we’re happy to have you in our community! The way it works, is that you can search for tasks in your language pairs that are of interest to you, claim them and translate them using our Kató TM. You can find more useful videos and FAQs here.
Please note that we are a non-profit and we don’t pay our translators. However, we highly value their contribution and offer a recognition program.
Does it answer your question? Is there anything else you’d like to know?
Hi @MohamedMohsen, and welcome! I recommend taking a look at our Welcome Pack, where you’ll find lots of helpful instructions and tutorials. In particular, I’ll highlight a few links here to help you get started:
This link will help you learn more about finding and claiming tasks.
You can access your claimed tasks by visiting your Kató Platform profile and clicking on “Claimed Tasks” at the top of the page. It will automatically show you any tasks you have in progress, but you can select “Any Task Status” or “Complete” from the Task Status dropdown menu to see older tasks.
If you have questions about a specific task as you’re working on it, I highly recommend going to your claimed task and clicking on the link next to “Discuss this task on Kató Community.” This will take you to the forum topic for your specific task where we can answer your question more quickly, and you’ll sometimes find that other volunteers have asked the same question as you. In addition, this is also where PMs occasionally share important information related to your task, such as glossaries, graphics, and clarification on terminology.
Finally, I’ll leave you with a few links that should help you find your way around Kató Platform and the translation interface, Kató TM, but please reach out again anytime you’re feeling lost!
Yes, at the moment, we are using two different translation environments: the TWB Workspace, which is provided by ProZ.com, and Kató Platform, which we have been using since we merged with The Rosetta Foundation in June 2017.
Unfortunately, the two platforms are not integrated with each other, which means that tasks claimed on one platform cannot be completed on the other. We understand that this is not ideal, and we are working on moving all of our tasks, as well as translators’ work history, to Kató Platform, and eventually it will be the only environment we use. Even though these two platforms are separate, whenever a volunteer requests recognition via our Recognition Program, we always take into account work performed on both platforms.
I hope this helps, but please feel free to reach out again with any other questions!
