Hello everyone, I would like to comment on something I have been experiencing for a couple of weeks now: every day I get several jobs that I have already translated in the past. They are very short jobs and generally paid below the standard rate. My language pair is EN>SP.
Does anyone else have the same problem?

    Oh, I forgot to mention that these jobs are easy to catch, unlike the rest, which despite not taking even 2 seconds to access the RSS reader notification, I'm always late.

    Hi InmaDG! Yes, the same is happening in the EN>IT pair. Tiny jobs (and with Edit!). Not sure what the client is doing. Some days I get frustrated, some days I just roll my eyes and laugh. Oh well...

    Hi @Inma and everyone, thanks for sharing your inputs here on this thread. I apologize for the late response and this inconvenience.

    If you still encounter this issue, please send me an email at v-Rica.Tero@lionbridge.com. I would appreciate it if you could send me details such as the support ticket ID (if you flagged this issue to the support team), job IDs, or screenshots so I can further look into this.

    Thank you.

    Rica, I've just sent you an email with some examples of this problem ;)

    Five weeks after the original post on this thread and this issue persists.

    Today it's been particularly acute. I've lost track of how many $0.01 to $0.06 jobs have arrived, to the point that I even spotted a single-word job and its own edit simultaneously in the Dashboard, which means the same jobs are sent several times.

    This approach ends up being cumbersome to deal with as our feed readers alert us countless times during the day for one-cent jobs. I can only guess this is an issue on the customer's side, but wouldn't it be better for both parties to just consolidate this large, endless batch of repeat jobs into a single collection (or even a few, more organized ones)?

    I think this would be a nice suggestion to pass on to the client.

    Same thing in the EN>SP pair. I flagged the job, but I don't think they'll do anything about it.

    I have noticed the same in the EN>PT(BR) pair.

    A month has passed and the problem persists (along with the one we already know about the mysterious and worrying lack of jobs). If the famous technical team still hasn't managed to fix it, maybe Lionbridge should change technical team (note the sarcasm).

    It seems that it is the same client who ordered the same jobs again and again. Is this meant to keep this platform more alive?

    I've had the same issue for quite a while, the same (small) jobs being posted over and over again and informed support about it at the time.
