I suspect there have been previous threads about this but anyway... It would be really nice if we had a tool to search old jobs. Sometimes you find yourself doing a job from what's clearly the same company/customer as before, and you want to go back and check what expressions you used previously to keep things constant. Since the nature of gengo.com is that we do hundreds of "tiny" jobs, trying to find a single specific job in the completed section is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

ご検討の程、よろしくお願いいたします。

    Gengo already has that, I think: https://gengo.com/t/bocabo

    Thank you Sara, but that Bocabo feature doesn't seem to work.

    I hope there's still some way to achieve it.

    [Edit] I noticed that Bocabo is a searching tool for translation memory, rather than searching for the old jobs. I was misunderstanding that.

    I'd like to search for the list of old jobs to check what was the requirement, what communication I had with the customers, etc. But Bocabo's ability to look into the TM is better than nothing.

    How did you find that tool? I also think there should be a clear link to Babolo from where all translators can see.

    Thank you Sara for letting me know! It's still prototype, I understood that's why there's no easy-to-find link in the translator workspace!

    Has Bocabo been taken down recently?
