Getting a translation project depends on many factors.
In general, we are trying to make sure that translators for each language pair have a chance to make money once they have started with us. Our system, in particular, is designed to reward translators for completing translation projects and receiving good feedback from clients by granting them higher priority on new projects that become available.
Thus, getting your first task may take a while.
You may see all available projects on the open projects page in your account. For certain projects, you will also receive email notifications, so our advice is to check the Open Projects page as well as your inbox regularly.
