If you've just started and it seems like no jobs are arriving in your dashboard, don't despair!
There are many possible reasons why you are not seeing any jobs right away:
- Seasonal or economic reasons: our business fluctuates depending on our clients' demand, that's why it's hard to predict when we will have jobs available for you.
- Your rate may be too high – we allow vendors to set their own rates; this means that each vendor in our database works with a different rate, and translators with similar experience but lower rates may be prioritized based on how much they charge. To change your rate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, our team will change your rate and you can see if that will result in more jobs available.
- Others accepted the project before you – most of our projects are highly time-sensitive and we work on a “first come, first serve” basis.
- The project particularly requires knowledge of a specific field.
