Update 5/7/14 – I have a new, updated review of Lionbridge here. This would give you more accurate information than below.
Lionbridge is extremely similar to Leapforce, Butler Hill, and Workforce Logic, which are also search engine evaluation jobs. They have several positions open right now including internet judge, internet multimedia judge, and labeling editor among others.
This post on Lionbridge is a bit old and outdated seeing as how it was written in 2010. For my newer Lionbridge post, go here.
- DSL internet connection
- Windows Vista or XP
- Microsoft Office, Adobe reader and WinZip
- Personal computer with at least 512 mb of memory and 1.5 Ghz
The pay, as you can see above, is pretty decent. However, they do require workers to commit to at least 10 hours per week. They are pretty secretive in regard to specifics, which is why I couldn’t give you an exact amount of pay. I put “about” $14 an hour because I’ve seen that quoted, but I’ve also seen other figures hovering around that number quoted. I do believe they don’t allow their workers to reveal their compensation amount, which might be why the figures I am getting are rather sketchy. As stated above, people in India earn $6.50 per hour. If you are from India, you must take exams covering material learned from presentations you’ll see during training. I thank one of my readers from India for providing me with this information!
It seems that they turn hiring on and off at different times, so if you check my link and can’t find anything, you should check back later. You do have to take a test to see if you would be a good fit for the position. Sometimes they also conduct phone interviews. From what I’ve read scouring the internet for information, many people enjoy working for Lionbridge and it is a legitimate opportunity. As far as how it stacks up compared toLeapforce, I’m not sure. It would be helpful if someone with experience working for either company would divulge some info below!
