Hello!

 

Up until now, I was receiving about 1-2 job reviews per month. But suddenly, in the past 5 days, I've received 5 different reviews by a senior translator! Is this a new change? are we getting reviewed more often now?

Does it have to do with the fact that now I'm working on two language pairs rather than one?

 

Thanks!

    Hi Alicia,

    Nothing has changed in how the reviews are done. If you do more work or translate in many language pairs, you will naturally receive more reviews.

    Thank you for the feedback, Megan. The thing is I am not doing more work. In fact, I'm doing less than ever because the jobs are scarce and/or they get taken ten times faster than ever.

    But that's what everyone else seems to be going through, anyway ... :)

    If I remember correctly, one thing I read once about working in multiple pairs on Gengo, is that you only have a single quality score. Now that is something that doesn't make much sense (to me), as usually you don't have the same proficiency in every pair. So, for instance, if you work at the standard tier in one pair and at "proofreader" tier in another pair, getting scores of 7 in the first pair would allow you to keep your standard qualification in it, but at the same time, it would mean losing the proofreader (and possibly the "pro") qualification(s) in the other pair, even if you always got perfect scores in it... E.g. (3x10 + 2x7)/5 = 8.8, (1x10 + 4x7)/5 = 7.6.

    @Alicia (June 24, 2015, 21:57) - So far this month I have done far less jobs (17) than the same month last year (45), but in terms of dollars I'm at 93%, with 4 more business days to go. Given that this month I have been away from my computer for several days, this is more than I would expect.

    I did not get more reviews. I can imagine that if you just started in your second pair, you will get extra reviews for that pair because you are 'new', even if you're not new to Gengo in your first pair. For the first pair you should not get extra reviews, I suppose.

    @Mirko - Let's hope the revised quality score system Megan mentioned in https://support.gengo.com/entries/68543984-STs-reviews-now-ONLY-carried-out-on-small-ish-jobs- also addresses the issue of multiple language pairs.

    Thanks, @Alexander. I suppose it depends on what language pairs you do have. Some are busier than others. 

    Let's hope it picks up again.

    *sigh*
