Web Content Assessor To Senior Rater
« on: March 02, 2016, 02:11:39 AM »
How long does it take to go from a web content assessor to a senior rater with Lionbridge? I hear that the senior raters make a lot more than the web content assessors. Sounds like they make nearly $20 an hour. That would be amazing! I just wonder how long it would take to get to that point.

How difficult is it to get to Lionbridge? I have read about it on this forum last year but did not pursue my intention to be involved on it. I think the screening process is what scared me to death.

So sorry I can't answer you, but I am intrigued! I also have read about Lionbridge on this forum but didn't sign up since my I was in the middle of moving then. Now, things have settle down a little so I will look into this again.

I hope someone will have the answer for you soon!

It is not easy to get into Lionbridge. You have to understand that companies, such as Google, contract them to help with live web searches. Google used to do it themselves, but decided that contracting the work would be better. There are other companies that Google works with, so each is held to a high standard. That is how I understand it, at least. Follow every instruction to the letter when applying with them.

Thank you for following with our questions on this site, and for the tip!

Have you also found the answer to your original question on how long it will take to become a senior rater? That's very interesting to know :)

I currently work for Lionbridge.

A few things to keep in mind is that they are a company like any other, hence there is a strict application process. They will only appoint you if you meet the requirements of the position as would any other company.

I feel they get an unnecessarily bad reputation as being hard to apply for. In my experience they have been strict but fair. The same applies to their projects leaders. When I have an issue on a project I simply send an email and I am answered promptly and respectfully.

My current position with them is Game tester. I do test applications as well.

I applied for and was not hired for Lionbridge. The thing is it would be helpful if these companies would tell you where you went wrong when applying, so you could do it correct it for the next time. I think Lionbridge pays well enough though, they have no shortage of applicants, and do not need to waste time with those who don't make the cut.

It sounds as if these positions have at least a set amount of hours, if not actual set hours, which does make it more of a work from home position than simply working online to make a little extra money on the side type of position. Because of that, it's not unusual that they would have a higher standard for applicants, especially if they provide any sort of paid training. I recall seeing this type of position with them listed in the past, but I haven't seen anything lately. I'm glad to hear that positions have opened up, since it seems many are in the market for more stable work from home employment.

It is definitely more a "work from home" than online work opportunity and it pays a lot more than your normal beermoney sites and tasks. If you are looking for online testing companies, or crowdsourcing, that do not have such stringent guidelines, may I suggest uTest. They have a smaller payout per project when directly compared to Lionbridge, in some cases as low as 25% of what Lionbridge pays, but they do have a lot more test cycles available and they do pay extra for found and reported bugs.

uTest have provided more local testing opportunities than Lionbridge so if you are from South Africa, like me, they might be the better option.
