Signing up for Kató Platform email notifications

If your language is not listed as a source/target language on the Kató Platform homepage, this means that there are currently no available tasks for your language.
You can set up email alerts to be notified of new available tasks.

  1. Go to ‘Profile’
  2. Scroll down to the Task Stream Notifications section

  1. Click on ‘Edit Notifications’ – You will be taken to another page where you will be able to set the frequency of notifications.

  1. Choose how often you want to receive notifications: Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Never

  2. Click on ‘Submit’

Hi!
Will the notifications be customised to my language preference or will they be general?

Thank you for the help!

Hello @Lasvega :slight_smile:
You’ll receive an email notification when tasks in your language pairs become available.

hello,
I am not receiving any alert and each time I want to do a task I get the " There are currently no tasks available …" Can someone tell me how to fix this problem please?

Hello @sandra.hamdn :slight_smile:
How often have you signed up to receive email notifications? Maybe you could change the frequency. You can do so in your Kató Platform profile.

Hi,

This is the problem I am facing as well. I wish someone guided me how to fix it as well.

Hi @bijerome2012 :wave: Thanks for reaching out! How are you?

We have a couple of solutions to help you out:

  1. Take a test with us to become a Kató Verified Translator :white_check_mark: This will give you access to more tasks in your language pair. To take this test, simply go to your profile and click on the orange “Get Verified” button under your language pair.
  1. Update your email notification preferences to “Daily” :email: This way, you’ll receive emails more regularly when tasks are available in your language pair. The instructions to do this are at the top of this page.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, you can take our Introduction to Humanitarian Translation Course :scroll: This course covers humanitarian translation, the work and history of TWB, and how to use our platforms.

I also recommend you have a look through our Translator’s Toolkit :toolbox: to learn more about getting started with us.

I hope this was helpful Jerome! Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions :blush:
