Projects and Vendors Compatibility: How to Work on Several Projects and Not Violate Vendors Conditions?

How Much Can You Earn With Lionbridge and Appen When Combining Several Projects?

earn-money031Projects and Vendors Compatibility is a big thing if you want to know how to maximize your earnings. When you start working for Appen, there are a couple of different projects, and the main one is Yukon. All projects have codenames. Yukon is the Google search engine evaluator project. There are also other projects such as the Nile which is rating Facebook ads and Truckee which is rating Instagram ads.

Both of these projects pay different amounts depending on where you are located. Yukon and Nile both pay 12-14 USD per hour in the USA and EU and $6-8 USD per hour in other countries. However, when you begin, and until your quality scores improve, you are only allowed 2 hours to work on Yukon per day. Once your quality scores improve, you are then able to work up to 26 hours per week if you are unrestricted.

Currently, Nile and Truckee are new projects and each rater who is approved for this product can work 1 hour per day. This may increase in the future.

So you could make about $1600 per month in the USA at this rate if you work the total 26 hours per week, plus being involved in another project such as Nile or Truckee. You do not have to work full time at Appen and Lionbridge, but you must stay within productivity levels or you can be taken off the project. You can put in 20 hours a month and be OK on productivity.

The bottom line is that it totally depends on how much time and effort you want to put into the job. If your quality scores are high, you will have unlimited access to tasks. In the beginning, you might only get a couple of hours per day.

Appen doesn’t allow any rater to go over 26 hours per week (in case of Lionbridge it is even less, 20 hours per week) this restriction is valid only for US part-time raters.   So there is a limit. Sometimes vendors offer bonuses which are currently an extra $3 per hour if you get to a certain amount of hours and tasks. These bonuses can change from time to time.

Can raters combine several projects at  Appen and Lionbridge?

The good news is that you can combine work at Lionbridge and Appen, so potentially you can increase your income up to $2500 and above providing more or less the same service and working 5-6 hours per day 5 days a week on 2 different projects! Below you will find a project computability matrix:

According to policies of all major vendors (Lionbridge, Appen), raters can’t work at competitor companies due to possible conflicts of interest. When it comes to the Google rating project, Appen and Lionbridge can find duplicate accounts very fast, and as a result, you will lose both accounts.

Multiple Accounts – Is There a Safe Solution? Find Out Here.

There are a few exceptions, for instance, you may work at Appen or Lionbridge on Google project and apply for the Social Media Evaluation projects at Appen (which are not related to Google e.g.: Instagram or Facebook). When applying for the role, applicants should make sure they never mention that they are in the project at another vendor, the best strategy is to say that you have no related experience.

Keep in mind that the rater cannot combine two projects which are related to one customer/platform (Facebook/Instagram). What social media evaluators can do is to work on a Google search engine evaluation project at Appen or Lionbridge on other projects which are unrelated to Google (Falcon Insta ads). This strategy has been proven to be safe and some raters have been working on the different projects at different vendors.

  1. Hey!

    I am working now for Appen as Social Media Evaluator.
    But I want to apply for the Nile project. Can I apply with the same Facebook account?
    Can I really combine both?
    How does it work to combine both projects?

      1. Hello Tim, can 2 persons of the same household work for 2 different companies ? one for Lionbridge and the other for Leapforce, using the same IP address ?? thanks!

    1. Hello,

      You can’t combine two projects which are related to one customer/platform (Facebook/Instagram). What you can do is to work on search engine evaluattion project at Leapforce or Lionbridge (Google) and at Appen on another projects which are unrelated to Google (Falcon Instaads).

      1. Hi I am working at appen with project crescent but caN I apply for Search Engine Evaluator at lionbridge ?

  2. Hello,
    I work in LB for 3 years in the main project of Personalized, but I don’t know what to do to enter in another companies like Appen/Leapforce/IsoftStone, I already tried with referrals, emails, normal registration but it never goes to the next step, I don’t know what can be wrong. 🙁

    Do you have any specific advice or tutorial to me to try another way to enter in these companies?

  3. Hi!
    What about Zerochaos? I know they are fairly new. Would I be able to do Social Media Eval with Appen and Ad Quality Rater with Zerochaos?

    1. Hi,

      Just got information that Google stopped cooperation with Zerochaos. See email bellow:

      Thank you so much for your interest in the Ads Quality Rater position.

      We appreciate your time, attentiveness and patience throughout this process, however, I am writing to notify you that this position has been closed due to customer request.

      We do thank you for your interest in ZeroChaos and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

      Ads Quality Rater Program Team,

  4. Hello,
    What about ZeroChaos? I believe they are fairly new and hard to get into. Would I be able to do Social Media with Appem and and Ads Quality Rater with ZeroChaos?

    1. Based on my experience I can say the following: according to policies of all major vendors (Leapforce, Lionbridge, Appen), raters can’t work at competitor companies due to possible conflict of interests.

      When it comes to Google rating project, Leapforce and Lionbridge can find duplicate accounts very fast, and as a result, you will lose both accounts.

What you can do is to work on a search engine evaluation project at Leapforce or Lionbridge (Google) and at Appen on another projects which are unrelated to Google (Falcon Instaads). This strategy has been proven to be safe and some raters have been working on the different projects at different vendors. Could you tell me a bit more about Ads Quality Rater with ZeroChaos? Is this role related to rating Facebook or adsence ads?

      1. What if you tried to pass the search engine evaluation exams in LF and failed (never actually worked for google), then several months later you try to pass the internet ads assessor exams on LB? Could LB reject you just by learning somehow that you tried to pass the exams for a different google project in a different company? Or if you never actually worked in the other project because you didn’t pass the exam then there shouldn’t be any trouble for trying again in a different project for another company? Thanks in advance.

  5. I believe it is along the lines of looking up ads via Google to determine relevancy. I am not completely sure though.

  6. i applied on leap force and selected qualify Yukon. does any one know how long it take to get the email from them about the qualification exam. i am looking for job from home.

  7. I have just applied to LB. I’m not from the US or Europe. Does this mean the pay in other countries would be lower than in US and europe? Isn’t this quite unfair as we are all working on the same projects?

    1. It is not me or you who decides the pay rate. The payment is on the range from $7 to $18.50 per hour and the wage depends on the country you work in.
      In India the pay rate is 7$ per hour,
      Mexico and Russia – 8$ per hour,
      USA-13,5$ per hour,
      France-14$ per hour,
      Brazil-12$ per hour.

      1. i had applied in appen also gave pre screening test after that no response from that. also applied in leapforce but no response. looking for job badly

      2. Appen is paying $3.5 USD for some projects and for some projects only $3 USD to Indians.

  8. Hi,
    I have a problem regarding leapforce and appen. I will be leaving my country of residence next month for 3 month and I work for both lp ( Nile) and appen (web search evaluation) I want to keep working outside my country because I need the money so I thought of using a VPN service provider but I don’t know if they can detect vpn . So what’s your advice? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi, I am going to be working abroad soon as well and am interested to know if you gave using a VPN a try and if it was successful. If so what VPN service did you use? Thanks.

      1. Hi, I did try it and it worked fine but you have to prevent fb or whatever website you work on from detecting your exact location By changing your location and privacy settings. I used Express VPN. It’s a bit expensive but it works fine.

      2. I am in the same situation. Have you tried Greyson, how did it go? Can you tell me more details. Thanks.

    2. Hi, maybe I will have to leave my country for 3 months and I want to keep my work with Leapforce and Appen. How did you do? Thanks

  9. I am on part 2 of the Yukon exam. I was quoted a rate of pay of $12, I live in the US in the northeast. Any idea why my rate would be lower?

    1. In April, US raters received an e-mail from Leapforce, which states the following “Effective June 1, 2017, [Raters in the US] can work up to 26 hours in a calendar week (Sunday to Saturday).” All raters will be moved to a new platform called raterlab and will not be able to work on another projects at Leapforce. This change also will affect hourly pay rate, now it will be less because taxes will be deducted by Leapforce and raters will be paid with net hourly rate.

  10. Good morning. I am from italy. I just started working in nile project and i wanted to ask a question about invoicing. If i am
    paid 11.5$ per hour this means i have to invoice always i.e. 60 minutes per day as if i invoice less minutes i will be paid less?

    1. Hello,

      As per Nile and Truckee projects policy you should always invoice only 1 hour. If you spend on completing tasks less than 1 hour or more than 1 hour, you should anyway invoice only 1 hour.

  11. “good news is that you can combine work at Leapforce or Lionbriage and Appen Butler Hill , —- ,and working 5-6 hours per day 5 days a week on 2 different projects!” Thanks for sharing. Do you know if I can work with LB and Appen in the same time? Do I need to apply it with different email address?

    Thanks for your assistance.

  12. “good news is that you can combine work at Leapforce or Lionbriage and Appen Butler Hill , —- ,and working 5-6 hours per day 5 days a week on 2 different projects!”

    Thanks for sharing. Do you know if I can work with LB and Appen in the same time? Do I need to apply it with different email address?
    appreciate for your assistance.

    1. Do you know if I can work with Appen and LB in the same time for the same ‘Online Content Evaluator (Appen)’ & ‘ Internet Assessor (LB)’ position? I already took the job of Internet Assessor at LB and try to apply for Appen. I wonder will it cause the interest conflict and influence my current job with Lionbridge.

      Do I need to apply it with different email address? Should I notice them

      appreciate for your assistance.

      1. Should I notice them?

        No, you should not because it will reduce your chance being invited for qualification. Vendors do not like applicants with previous experience in search engine/social media evalution jobs.

        ‘Online Content Evaluator (Appen)
        It is a code name for unknown project, if a customer is Facebook or Instagram (you may guess who is the customer of the project by reading vacancy description), then you may apply for this position and it wont affect your status with Lionbridge.

      1. Hi, i’m current workin for LB as a web search evaluator, in Brazil… the wage is U$8,20 btw (the same as yukon on leapforce U$10,5) and I was invited by appen to work on aztec ads, that is a social media project to evaluate Ads on Google, is it possible to work in both of then? they are both from google, but i’ve seen it, it is a completely different job

      2. Hello,

        Unfortunately you cannot combine thsese two projects under 1 IP address, however you may try to arrange a separate laptop and internet connection in order to apply for the ads rating project…

      3. How does it look if i work on LB on Google Projects and want to work on Leapforce Facebook Projects, is this possible ?

  13. I applied for all three Appen, Lionbridge and Leapforce. I was accepted by Appen to work on the Aztec Project as an ad rater, contacted by Leapforce (Raterlabs) to take the online qualification for the Yukon Project and invited by Lionbridge to take their exam, because I “may be a suitable candidate for
    the Rater position”.
    I am very conflicted! I had very little knowledge about these companies and no idea about maybe only being able to work for just one… now I fear they find out and I will lose my chance to work from home.
    Should I just not take the pending tests?

    1. Hello,

      Aztec project is Google Ads rating project which is distributed form raterhub platform it means that you can’t combine Yukon and Aztec, you have to choose only one project to go for.

      1. Thanks for your response.
        What about Lionbridge? They actually haven’t offered anything, I was just invited to take the exam.

  14. […] As per Appen project requirement raters are allowed to work 20 hours per week max, or a max of 30 hours in total if raters work on other Appen projects. Raters cannot exceed 30 hours per week working on 2 different projects at Appen. On average you can make about $390-$405 per week at the average rate of $13.50 per hour. If you are interested in working on several projects at once, then this article is a must read: HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN WITH LEAPFORCE /LIONBRIDGE/APPEN […]

  15. Hello, Thank you for your blog. It is great !! I’m in France and I work for LB since one year (map analyst). They change the system of TryRating since 2 months and I haven’t got as much as tasks since. I would like cumulate another job. Can I really cumulate with Appen and do I have to say that I work for LB ? Thanks.

    1. yes, you can. When applying for any similar search engine or social media evaluator position at Appen or Leapforce do not mention that you have previous/current experience/project, vendors do not like candidates with previous experience.

  16. Hello,
    I see on the website of Appen that they offer 3 jobs for France : French Voice Data Collection, Crowdsourcing and Web search evaluator. Do you think there is a job compatible with LB (map analyst) and others not ? Thanks.

    1. Hi Marine,

      I would like to ask you if you would be interested in writing an article for my blog about your experience in maps analyst project? I will be glad to pay you for a well written medium sized article about 40$.
      If interested, let me know via

  17. Is there a Kind of quality control for Nile Facebook rating comments? If yes, how often are they done?

  18. Hi,

    Yes, Leapforce quality team constantly monitors quality of raters’ service and if it does not meet client’s standards, such raters are removed from the project.

  19. So just want to double check. You can work at Appen doing Facebook ads and Lionbridge doing web search for Bing? Thanks

    1. Hello TM, did you finally combine Appen Facebook and Lionbridge Web Search, if yes, how did it go for. Thanks

  21. hi
    can some one contact me please i really need help my account on leap force hacked and the kicked me out from NILE project and also i need help to join appen or Lionbridge and how i can pass Yukon exam ty

  22. Hey there tim., i once referred to your site when i was in the process of applying for Yukon in LP, and many thanks as i found many useful info and your site also help build up my confidence and there are a few more matters id like to ask advice to.

    It’s is now my 5 and a half months working for LP, and ive managed to keep good/acceptable scores for the past 5 months, somehow i slipped and received two bad scores, but overall. i have 2 “passing” scores out of the three categories. now i fear that i wont be renewed with about two weeks to go before my contract ends because of the sudden dip in scores.
    this is not my only job, but i depend on it greatly to help out with expenses.

    anyway, im want to try to qualify for the Falcon project in Appen, and it would be okay as it is not the same as the Yukon project, and there will be no breach of contract right? Would it also be better if i used different mails? (the mail that i use for my social media is actually different from the mail i used in LP).

    The description for the “Online part time job” in Appen states that 4 hours or 1 hour a day, does this mean that you can choose only either to work 4 hours/day for 5days or 1hr/day (20hrs/wk or 5hrs/wk). does this mean that you can only choose one these? or could you change/choose how many hours you work for depending on how the day suits you?
    if i was living in a foreign country in which english is not the main language. would my comments for the ads required to be written in the native language?

    and some other Q’s, i have the impression that LP does not send emails before end of contract to notify the rater that theyll be renewed, but do you know if LP sends out termination emails before the end of contract?
    i want to sign up sa appen just as a backup if i dont get renewed in LP, even if i get renews in LP, the 1hr/day at appen would still be great help…

    Thanks for the time..
    I look forward to your reply.


    1. The description for the “Online part time job” in Appen states that 4 hours or 1 hour a day, does this mean that you can choose only either to work 4 hours/day for 5days or 1hr/day (20hrs/wk or 5hrs/wk). does this mean that you can only choose one these? or could you change/choose how many hours you work for depending on how the day suits you?

      4 hours per day is a requirement for Aztec project at Appen. This project is related to ads evaluation and the customer is Google, it means that you cannot combine Yukon and Aztec projects under one IP address. In this project time commitment is flexible.

      1 hour per day is most likely is related to Falcon Insta Ads project, this project can be combined with all projects, however if you already work at Leapforce you might have another project which is available to you (Truckee project which is the same project as Falcon Insta Ads).

      would my comments for the ads required to be written in the native language?

      All comments must be written in English.

      and some other Q’s, i have the impression that LP does not send emails before end of contract to notify the rater that theyll be renewed, but do you know if LP sends out termination emails before the end of contract?

      Normally Leapforce does not terminate contract without a reason (e.g. unacceptable quality).

      1. Thanks for the reply., so far Yukon is the only project available for me in my country, thats why i want to sign up for falcon insta at Appen.

      2. About the comments in native language, when the tasks are in the native language the comments also need be in english or these cases are exceptions? Because I thought if the tasks are in determined language,the comments be allowed to be in that language too

  23. Help! I passed the qualifications and am waiting to be added to the rater tool for LF Nile. Appen just contacted me with an offer for a 4 hours per day Falcon Spotlight/Opinion Search position. It’s to improve the search tool for a major social media platform. Can I do both of these?

    It seems like the Appen job might be Facebook and that might be a conflict with LP Nile? One is ads and the other is search, but I’m not sure if this is okay if they are on the same platform?!

    1. Hello,

      Spotlight/Opinion Search project is administrated via Facebook tool. In most cases vendors do not allow raters to work for another vendors, in particalar if it comes to one customer/rating tool. My recommendation is to go for one project related to Facebook. and apply for anaother project which is not related to one customer.

  24. Hello Tim,

    I’m currently taking an exam for LB (online map quality analyst) (taking part 2), today I got an invitation from Appen- Aztec Ads . So I’m wondering that can I apply to Appen too? I don’t want to lose job at LB(map analyst) but if it’s possible I want to work in Aztec project also. Btw, Appen offers 5$ per hour for Turkey, what do you suggest? Can I apply Appen and work for them also with same computer/ip?


  25. Hi Tim! I am currently working at ABH as WSE and I wanted to increase my income by also taking the job at Leapforce. I was researching the compatibility of both projects and clients, then I found your blog ‘passleapforceexam’. As I see that in the table you entered above, you say that Shasta and Aztec are compatible. Aztec is for Google, OK. But who is the client of Shasta? Is it Apple? I started Leapforce’s qualification process and I see that they use Google maps for training material. Why is that so, if the client is Apple? I want to know this as I do not want to lose any of the contracts. Thank you ver much

    1. Thank you for your question. Indeed in this project raters are advised to use Google Maps Service in oder to verify accuracy of the system generated results, however if you examine the rating tool and it is interface it very similar to Apple Maps Interface, moreover in the guidelines you may see the image of Iphone which is also a kind of indication that this project is related to Apple Maps…

      1. Thank you very much for the quick response. Leapforce was not telling it openly. So I can take the exam and see what will happen. 🙏

  26. wondering if you have any insight on if it’s safe to create separate instagram accounts on which to work truckee and falcon Insta ads at the same time. my inclination is to think that they add the FRT to different user profiles and they find the profile by the URL, not an email address, so it doesn’t seem they would catch it.

    1. Hello, why do you need 2 accounts on this project? You better check for another projects which might be available in your country…

      1. This does not answer my question. I will simply assume you don’t know the answer or you did not read my question thoroighly.

  27. Thanks for sharing this. I still have a doubt, you see.. I’m working on Aztec project from Appen about a couple weeks and now I received an email from LB to make the test for Maps Analyst. Is there some problem if a use the same computer for both projects (to both, test and work, if I also pass on maps)? I already applied using the same email, but I had to do another to work on Aztec and one more to make the LB test. The email I’ve used to applied to be the same or the fact I’m using the same computer for both can be affect me even
    if the projects being compatibles? considering that by rule I’m not allowed to work for different companies.

    1. You amy combine Aztec and Maps projects without any risk of being removed due to IP/project conflict. These two projects are fully compatible.

      1. Thanks, I’m in the same situation and it is good to know that those projects are compatible.

  28. Hi Tim,

    I have been doing Google project at Lionbridge for 1.5 years, but I was removed from it several weeks ago. They said nothing about the reason, but my best guess is that I had low productivity value for 2-3 consecutive months.

    Later, I joined project Falcon (Instagram) at Appen. It’s been going for several weeks.
    At the same time, I applied for Leapforce aiming to join project Yukon, which is actually the same with my previous job at Lionbridge. However, the only available project for me is currently project Truckee, which is the same with my ongoing project at Appen. I have not clicked the “Qualify” button because I am in doubt.

    I would like grab projects from both Appen and Leapforce, so I’m afraid that it would be regrettable if I take off the one at Appen just to join another in Leapforce.

    Is it appropriate to email the Leapforce team to ask for other project, such as project Yukon, at this stage?
    Do you have a better strategy? Please suggest me if you have a good idea on this matter.


  29. I suggest you to email Leapforce and ask them directly if they can add you to Yokon project.

  30. […] this is true for any company when they acquire another business. But to be honest, in some markets Appen is known for paying miserable wages as compared to Leapforce and Lionbridge for the same search engine evaluation job. They have even lowered wages in some countries and pay […]

  31. Hello and good day! First of all I would like to thank you for all the useful content you have on social media evaluating jobs.

    Now I am a rock stuck in a hard spot right now.

    I am working for Lionbridge as social media ads assessor only allowed one hour a day.
    I applied to Appen and have passed the quiz and been offered a part time 20 hr minimum job for Falcon Local Curation.

    How do I quit Lionbridge and is this going to cause any issues even if I quit Lionbridge and then Appen still turns around and fires me? Wish they would be less transparent about all this. It is all mighty confusing.

    Any help or advice is so greatly appreciated.
    Thanks and have a great day!!

    1. Hello,

      These two projects are administrated by one customer (Facebook/Instagram), it means that you cannot combine these two projects because at some stage you will be asked to provide your Facebook page details and their system may detect of fact of being registered on two projects which belong to one customer, this might be lead to IP address conflict or multiple account issue.

  32. I’ve been working for LB as a “Rater1” and would like to know for which other jobs I can apply without having any conflict…

  33. Tim,

    If working for LP and plan to take vacation outside the country for few months, do you think it’s allowed? Shall I send them an email to inform or they will kick me out of the project? What you can suggest?



    1. You should write to your vendor and inform about your blackout period, do not try to work from abroad, it will lead to termination of your contract.

  34. Hi tim, can I do Lionbridge online map analyst project, while i’m still doing yukon and truckee?

  35. Hello. Thanks for this helpful article. I just want some clarification to makebsure I understood everything:
    I am qualified for both Aztec and Lionbridge’s map quality analyst. I’ve applied with same e-mail. I used the same computer. Question is, can I keep using the same computer for both projects? Will there ever be a chance I get found out by my registration email? I really dont want any risks since this is my golden opportunity.
    Thank you

    1. No I do not think so, projects belongs to different customers and vendors so there is no any chance for IP address conflict.

  36. Great article. Thank you. I dont know where my question went when I posted it, so ill post again to make sure.
    I have offers from Aztec and lionbridge’s map quality analyst. I’ve applied with same email and computer. Will they ever find out by one of those criterias? Do I need a seperate computer when doing actual tasks?
    I don’t wanna risk, since this is my few opportunities to work at home.

  37. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if working for clickworker doing UHRS is a breach of contract with working with Appen doing a Falcon project.

  38. Hi, I passed the Appen qualification for the Falcon local hours curation project and was invited to qualify for the multi media judge for Lionbridge. Are these two compatible? Thanks. I can drop one if needed but not sure if I should inform LB that I qualified.

  39. Hi, I am currently working on the Nile project on Leapforce. I recently applied to Raterslabs to work on the Yukon project. Do you know if this acceptable or some kind of violation?

    1. Yes, you may combine Nile and Yukon projects, they are fully compatible.

      1. Thanks. I had to apply to Raterslabs for the Yukon project, not using the Leapforce account I am currently using. Is it ok to use both services?

      2. Yes it is OK using new gmail account for application process will not affect the process.

      3. I got through the process using a separate email and passed all the exams, but the hiccup came when filling out the final paperwork. I had to put my SSN and other information. Apparently their Raterlabs system and Leapforce system are connected because it recognized that I had an account on Leapforce and wouldn’t let me fill out the paperwork.

  40. Hi Tim,

    Thank you for your article. I’m currently employed with Appen (Falcon Insta Ads) and am trying to see if I could work for Leapforce also. I’m currently doing my application and for qualifications, It seems like the only option for me is Thames which isn’t included in this article, is it possible for me to work for Falcon Insta Ads and Thames at the same time even though one is Instagram based and the other Facebook?

    Thank you.

    1. hello, I do not have any info regarding Thames project, if you could share information about this project I could make assumption of Leapforce Yukon project might be compatible with Thames project…

      1. The Thames project seems to require an iPhone or Android device and to have the latest version of Facebook installed on one of the devices. From what I read from the qualifications, it seems that it’s about inputting location to help with analytics of Facebook with a tool apart of Facebook. I went ahead and signed up to qualify since I’m assuming it is in a different tool that will not affect my current job with Falcon Insta Ads.

  41. Hi Tim,
    Not so sure about your project computability matrix listed above. My question is if I got an project offered by Appen from Aztec ads and the other one offered by Leapforce from Shasta, do these two projects are both related to Google? Does that mean I can’t take both offers, but only one?

    Thank you for your further reply.

    1. Aztec and Shasta projects are administrated by different customers, so you may combine these two projects.

  42. Hi Tim,

    is it acceptable to work in both Nile and Shasta projects ?? I will appreciate your quick reply.

  43. Hi Tim, can work in both Shasta and Nile projects at the same time ?? I will appreciate your quicker response.

  44. I forgot.
    I work in Nile and Yukon for Leapforce.
    And now i was invited and started working for Apollo Project (linguistics) for Appen.
    Do you know Apollo ? Are there any conflicts to Yukon and Nile?


    1. Unfortunately I have not had any chance to work on Apollo project, if you have any information about this project, you are welcome to share the info here.

  45. Hello tim, you site is the Oasis in the midle of the desert. Your tips are awesome.
    I have two questions:
    About Yukon specifically these rates can be higher ? I mean, within time i can receive more per hour ? If i get better and better and gets that perfects scores often i will have a better hour rate ? Or not ? Always the same…
    And for last, are the contract renewals automatic ? I am working in Nile for 6 months and Yukon for 5 months now… when can i expect the official renewal.

  46. Hi Tim,

    Just trying to clarify for multiple positions what I’m allowed to do. I’ve currently passed the exam for Appen Falcon Ads and I am set to start that project tomorrow. I’m currently waiting the exam for Leapforce Yukon project (I reschedule my exam start date until next week). And just received an email to proceed with LionBridge for the Ads Evaluator US position. Could you tell me if I should proceed with both LF and LB? Or are they conflicting? I know Yukon is Google but did not know what Ads Evaluator was for LB? Again, I have not taken either exam yet, just invited to take both. Am I allowed to take both?

    Thank you for your help! Your site is awesome!

    1. Please refer to project compatibility matrix, the Ads rating project and yukon project are not compatible because they are administrated by one customer on the same platform.

      1. Thank you for your response! That’s what I thought, but wanted to clarify. Am I able to take both exams?

  47. Hello Tim, can I work for appen (social media evaluator) and also for lionbridge (ads evaluating program) at same time? I have to use two differents email accounts?
    Thank you.

  48. Hello Tim, can I work for Appen (social media evaluator) and Lionbridge (ads evaluating) at same time? I have to use two different email accounts?
    Thank you.

  49. Hi there,

    I’ve recently been accepted in the Shasta project and I’m really interested in attempting the Social Media Evaluator position with Appen since they just posted that position in my area. Have you received a lot of feedback on your project compatibility matrix from people working for different vendors? I understand they are different projects so it should technically be okay but I’m also afraid of getting let go from both projects if I take on another one.

  50. Hi Tim
    I started to work for LB one month ago as a “social media assessor”, do you think I can apply also for “ads assessor” for the same company or we can work just for one project?
    Thank you

    1. Hello,

      It is not possible, this vendor does not allow raters to work on several projects at the same time at Lionbridge.

  51. Good Morning!
    Can you help me please?
    I’m from Brazil – Brasilia and I’m trying to apply on the YUKON project. When I put my email from gmail I get a link in my email. When I go to the leap force site and type this code an error message appears:
    “System error
    Our apologies, we encountered an error while processing your request.
    Please use your browser’s Back button to return to the page you were viewing. ”
    Do you know why this message appears?
    Thank you!

    1. Hello,

      No, I do not know the reason for this error, follow instructions and hopefully the verification process will be completed successfully.

  52. Hi Tim, thanks very much for this greatly helpful post. I’m working for Appen and Leapforce outsie the US and really enjoying working with them.

    I just found out that the projects I’m working on are not compatible. I have gone back to read my contracts but they didn’t mention it at all. Should I still drop one when they didn’t say anything about conflict of interests in the written contracts?

    And, I heard that appen acquired leapforce, and wondering if this means there is no conflict of interests between them and I can work with both of them?

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I’m afraid to ask my vendors directly as I’m relying on them a great deal and don’t want to lose them 😦

    1. Hello,

      In most cases only those projects are not compatible which are administrated by one customer from one platform (e.g. raterhub), working on different unrelated projects at different vendors is OK.

  53. hi guys is it possible to work for lionbridge google and isoftstone microsoft at the same time ? did anyone already did that ?

    1. Hello,

      Yes these two projects are fully compatible as they belong to different customers/vendors.

  54. Hi Tim, this is a very helpful post. I’m working for Appen on the Aztec Project as a Search Engine Evaluator, and I just received an email from Lionbridge to take the exam for the Online Map Quality Analyst position.

    So as to understand, am I able to work on both projects or not? Should I pick one of the two projects, and if yes, which one would you suggest to work with?

    I don’t want to lose both of them if it is not possible to work with both of them.

    Thank you for your time!

  55. Hi, I work on Appen since 3-4 months son Aztec Ads project, with my name.
    Can I try also with Online Map Quality Analyst of LB, with name of my parent (same address)?

  56. Hi, This site is so helpful. I’m currently working as social media evaluator for Lionbridge using my instragam account. Can I work for LEAPFORCE as social media evaluator using my Facebook account? Will working both companies cause a conflict?

    1. Well these two projects belongs to one customer and are linked to one account (Facebook), it is very likely that they may check the fact of working on another project, but you may try, the worse thing which may happen is that Leapforce will not offer you a contract.

  57. Hi, I’ve worked with Appen for a few years now and would like to start up with Lionbridge. I recently got an invite to do the Bing ads with Lionbridge, but am unsure if I should take the opportunity as I’ve rated ads for Bing in the past with Appen. What should I do?

    1. I think you may proceed with Bing project at Lionbridge as you are currently not working on this project at Appen.

      1. Okay thanks, I just am not sure if Lionbridge uses UHRS like the Appen project does and if that would conflict with the old UHRS account I have with Appen, do you still think it would be alright?

      2. In this case I recommend you to create new outlook ID and use it as the second email for UHRS tool…

  58. Recently, Lionbridge made me put this new extension on my laptop, the Rating Program Extension – Cloud. Has anybody else gotten this email and been forced to put this exrension on their computers? I’m unclear as to what the purpose of this is and whether it is allowing Lionbridge to have access to my laptop to view or listen to me while I’m working.

    1. The purpose of the extension is to monitor you working time or time spent in the system so they can compare your time sheet data vs actual time spent in the system.

      1. Oh, got it! Thanks, Tim! I appreciate this forum. Really helped me with passing the exam and getting hired on!

  59. Hi Tim,

    I just wanted to ask if Truckee (LF) and Falcon Engagement Bait (Appen) are compatible. I looked at the table above, however, I don’t see anything that’s specific to Falcon EB. I’m currently working on the Falcon EB project, and have applied to LF recently.


    1. Hello,

      Could you share more info about Falcon Engagement Bait (Appen)? As far as I know this project also belongs to FB?

  60. Dear Tim,
    Thank you for this wonderful blog just a correction, LB pay $8 in India for Social media evaluators. I know because I am working with them from last 2 years.

  61. I am working for Lionbridge from 2 months as a web search evaluater. Recently I joined as social media evaluator for Appen in Falcon ads(different project). After doing my rating work on first day on Appen, I received an email from Lionbridge with a subject “Non-Disclosure Agreement – Remainder” saying that ”
    we would like to remind you some of the most important terms and conditions”.

    Although they are saying that this notification sent to all raters on the program, it is looking like strange because I received this mail after my first working day on Appen.

    1.So, is it a sign that they detected my ID on appen?

    I used different mail ID’s for both platforms, but I mentioned both email ID’s in my resume when I applied to Lionbridge and Appen. Anyhow, I am using one email for Lionbridge and another for Appen to login into tools but I am using same mobile and laptop to work for both platforms with different tools on these same devices. I am thinking that they detected my ID’s because of the same device, am I right? Please answer

  62. Hello Tim and thank your for your help.
    I’m working (only using my phone) for Appen with the Falcon Messenger Ads project, and i got an offer from Lionbridge for Social Media Evaluator. Can I do both? thanks

  63. Hi Tim,
    I am about to take the test at both Shasta Project at Leapforce and Maps Analyst at Lionbridge. Can I take both projects even these are for the same customer?
    I read the compatibility matrix already but need your confirm to avoid any misunderstanding.
    Thank you.

  64. I’m currently working on Shasta project in Leapforce. Can I apply for Lionbridge ads assesor and work both?

  65. Hi Tim,

    Can 2 people work for Aztec and Falcon at Appen from 1 IP? Is IP duplication check applied for all Appen projects or for each vendor separatedly?

  66. I happened to have 2 accounts at Appen and got invited to both Aztec and Falcon. I confessed and they said I’m not allowed to work for Falcon since I’m with Aztec. But isn’t it possible cause the vendors are different?
    Can two email accounts work for Aztec and Falcon at Appen from 1IP at the same time?

  67. Hey i’m currently working for Falcon Ad Project. I also had applied for Nile project 2 months ago before I got my appen job. And without really thinking about it I re-applied some days ago for Nile project (because you can re-apply every 2 months).
    But this time I do have my Appen job (Falcon ads project) and i got chosen to participate Nile project.
    I should supposedly start Nile project very soon, but since both are on Facebook i thought about compatibility issues that’s how I found your article.

    You did write that it’s not compatible however they didn’t say anything wrong yet.
    Should I confess now that I’m already working on Falcon project?
    Is there not any chance that I could work for both?
    Is there any risk that I lose my initial Appen job because of that?


    1. I cannot give you 100% correct answers on your questions, I know that there is a very strict condition regarding multiple accounts in all Google rating projects, they have a system which automatically detects IP address conflict. As to Facebook related projects, I assume that they might have the same system…

      1. Hey, well definitely cannot combine 2 facebook ads jobs, they just finally sent a mail telling me that it’s not possible , at the moment they were supposed to give me the access to the FB tool.
        Thanks for your answer anyway 😉

      2. Of course you cannot, it will lead to IP address conflict. It was mentioned in the article and project compatibility matrix.

  68. Hi Tim. Thank you for all of the helpful information. I’m currently working for Lionbridge as a social media evaluator (using my iphone and my “primary” Facebook/instagram account.) I just received an offer from Appen to work on the Falcon project (using my laptop and my “secondary” Facebook/instragam account.) By the way, I’m using different email addresses for each employer. Will any of these circumstances cause a conflict?

  69. Thanks for these posts, this gives some good information about the projects. I applied for a couple of projects last week, because based on some reddit post I expected some long waiting times before getting accepted. But I got selected for three projects: map analyst at Lionbridge, Aztec ads at Appen and as a search engine evaluator at Leapforce

    I still have to do the exams, and I’ll try to get into the map analyst role first, but I want to get into another project as well. This second option would be either the Aztec ads, or the search engine evaluator (not both). I rather look at websites than ads to be honest, but I don’t know the salary of Leapforce yet (I’m in a country in Europe with in general above average to high wages). Based on the table above, I see that the map analyst and Aztec ads are compatible. I can’t tell if Leapforce and Lionbridge are compatible, so is the search engine evaluator at Leapforce compatible with the map analyst project at Lionbridge?

    1. Hello,

      Yes any search engine evalution project at any vendor is fully compitabile with maps analyst project because these projects belongs to different customers and are administrated from different rating platforms…

      1. Thanks for the reply, and I’m sorry to bother you with another question: are Lionbridge MQA and Leapforce Shasta compatible? (I read somewhere that Leapforce is Apple maps?)

        Because I did the exam at Lionbridge, and after the exam I instantly got an email saying that I failed. So I applied at Leapforce (for the second time, because earlier I deleted my LF account once I saw that it was Shasta I was qualified for, and not the SEE position they initially communicated). The Shasta project is now pending (again).
        Now two days later I got an email from Lionbridge that I did pass the exam. I’m currently doing the training program at Appen for Aztec as well (still have to do the test). So what do you reckon: delete Leapforce again? or just continue with all three?

      2. You may combine Shadta/Maps Analyst projects with any projects including Aztec project at Appen.

      3. I just passed the LF exam for Shasta as well, and I am already working for LB as a map quality analyst. I assumed they had different customers, but it turns out it’s the same customer. Any chance of an IP conflict with TryRating?

  70. Hello Tim,

    Great information!

    Can I work for Lionbridge as a social media evaluator and appen on the falcon project at the same time?


    1. Hello,

      Social Media Evalutor is just a general name for all kind of search engine evalution jobs, I need more info to answer your question…

  71. Thanks for the info. Quick question, I can’t tell from the table above: are map analyst at Lionbridge and search engine evaluator at Leapforce compatible with each other?

  72. Hi Tim, thanks for your information. I’m currently working to Leapforce Yukon project. Do you know if I can work to Appen Falcon Local Curation project at the same time?

    1. Yes you can, Falcon Local Curation belongs to FB, thus these two projects are fully compatible.

  73. I work for Lionbridge as a “Rater”, which is not addressed. What other type of jobs and where I can do without creating conflict?

    1. Hello,

      Rater is just another name for search engine evaluation job (Google rating project also known as Yukon at Leapforce/Raterlabs)

  74. Hi Tim, thanks for the info. I will be taking the Appen qualification test for the Aztec Ads project as an web search evaluator. At the same time, I also received an offer from LB as an Internet Ads Accessor.

    I heard that it takes time to know the test result, I’m afraid that if I ignore LB offer for weeks, that I will not be able to take the LB test and also not be able to apply for the same role again.

    Should I just take the Appen test and wait for the result? Or should I inform LB that I am going to take the Appen test? (I’m afraid that they will not accept me after I inform them about the Appen test)

  75. Thanks for the info Tim
    I’m about to take a test at Aztec Project (Appen) but at the same time i also received an offer for Ad accessor at LB.
    Should i inform LB that I will be taking a test at Appen? or should I just wait for the result ?
    I’m afraid that LB will not accept me as an applicant anymore after I got my result from Appen (heard that it takes weeks to get to know your result)

  76. Hi Tim,

    Good day to you. Thank you for creating this blog.

    I have a question – I applied for Social Media Evaluator (Falcon Post Tagging) at Appen and Online Map Quality Analyst English (Google, I believe?) at Lion Bridge. I was asked to undergo evaluation tests soon. Assuming I passed the tests, is it safe to say that I can work for both projects because the clients are different? Is my understanding correct?

    I noticed a conflict of interest clause on Lion Bridge’s contract, must I notify them that I have also applied and intend to work for Appen under a different project?

    Can you please advise?

    Thanks in advance. 🙂


    1. Hello,

      Of course you should not notify Lionbridge about the fact of working at Appen. The projects you mentioned, are fully compitabile.

  77. Hello ,
    I am working as Personalized / Social media Internet Assessor in Lionbridge. Can i apple for Social Media Evaluator in Appen?

    I hope to get your reply soon .
    Thanks in advance.

    1. It depends on what is the project behind this code name, but based on my experience most likely it is going to be a falcon project which is fully compatible with any Google projects.

  78. Hello,

    Can anyone tell is it possible to apply for US postion from overseas using VPN?

    And can I use the smartphone for the second account which I used to use for the first acount (though PC and network are different)?

    1. You may try but sooner or later you will be terminated for contract condition breach (VPN services are usually unstable and just one IP address change will be detected by their system).

  79. Hello Tim, I was accept it for the Aztec proyect in Appen and i currently workin in Nile proyect in LF, so can I work in the two proyects without making any conflict in the contract? The work is similar, rating ads, but they are from different contrators, what do you think? Is there a risk?

  80. Hi, I am currently working as an Ad rater for LB in the U.S. I am thinking of moving to another state. Do you know if I can continue to work as long as I am still in the same country?

    Also, if I were to spend a month or 2 in another state would it be ok if I worked from there?

    Are we allowed to work using a mobile hotspot plan? Or some sort of portable internet device?


    1. Yes, you can change your state location and IP address, as far as I know using mobile internet also is OK.

  81. Hello,

    This article you wrote created a lot of hope within me, thanks for that. But at the same time I have questions, which I would love for you to answer. I’m from India currently working for Map Quality Analyst project at Lionbridge and have been turning down contract offers from Appen. Now, I had applied through the same Gmail account on both these sites using the same laptop and IP address, so is my fear that me accepting an Appen project would end up in detection, thus, breach of contract with both vendors is correct, even if they are compatible? or should I go by the “Multiple accounts – is there a safe solution? ” post of yours?

      1. Thank You for the reply,
        Falcon Entity Rating, crowd sourcing, english video transcription, English Voice Rating are the projects they have asked me to apply for in the last two months. I’m pretty sure they will come around with more options for me, though, they do follow up demanding a response, but I keep ignoring. What should I do?

    1. I red this conversation now. What have you done? Do you have double work without problems?

  82. Dont know if my first message was saved, therefore again:
    If i work on Lionbridge in Google Projects, is it safe to work on Leapforce Projects like Instagram or Facebook ? Does anybody has tried this already ?

    1. Yes it is safe, please refer to project compatibility matrix for more info.

  83. Hello,

    I am taking a test for Social Media Evaluator at Appen and an Ad Rater for LionBridge. Will working for both of these companies work?

    Thank you

  84. Hi Tim,

    I know several people have asked this before but is Leapforce Shasta (Maps) really compatible with Lionbridge’s Google Evaluation? I understand it’s two completely different platforms but Lionbridge says you aren’t even allowed to do UHRS while with them, which is sad because it seems Leapforce is way more lenient when it comes to that. Would this only work if I used two separate IPs or would I be OK if I applied to Shasta with Leapforce while working for Lionbridge?


  85. Hi Tim!

    I am currently working as Falcon Content Categorization in Appen which is belongs to Facebook using SRT tools platform to work. Can I work at Truckee project? Is it ok if i am send an email about this question to Appen?

    Thank you

  86. Hi Tim, can one work for Appen as Social Media Evaluator and for Lionbridge as Internet Assessor. Thanks for great job you’re doing here

    1. Yes, it is possible, these projects can be combined without any risk.

  87. Hi..I currently work in Lionbridge’s map analyst for about 4 months now, the rate is 0.35 per task (Indonesia), since I only able to work 10 task per hour, then I only got $3.5 per hour ! pretty sad situation. From your table now I know that it’s OK to work for aztec ads, which i’ve been invited by Appen. Thank you Tim.


    What is the max payout/hr in India ?

    What is the difference between Web search evaluator & Internet assessor ?

    Mobile handset is required for the role of Web search evaluator or not ?

    1. After Appen acquired Leapforce, the max hourly pay was set at the level of 5$ per hour, in this respect Lionbridge pays more, 7$ per hour for the same type of work. Internet Assessor and search evaluation are different code names for the same project. Yes, a mobile phone is required for this project.

      1. Can I apply & work as an Internet Assessor for both Appen & Lionbridge with two different gmail id & ip address ?

        Will documents submission while applying for both cos. with single applicant will be an issue ?

  89. For Longridge, as an Internet assessor role, if there is task availability then what happens if I exceed 30hrs/weeks?

  90. Hello I am working for LionBridge as Personnalized Internet assessor and I receive an invitation from Appen for the Falcon Local Curration project, are they compatible ?

    Do I have to work on a different computer ? I gave the same gmail adress for both projects, will that cause an issue ?

    Thank you very much and your site has been very helpful

    1. Hello, these two projects belong to different customers it means that you can work on both without any risk of IP address conflict.

  91. Hello I am working for Appen for the Falcon Local Curration project and I receive an invitation from LionBridge to work as Internet assessor, are they compatible ?

    1. Sorry, I am also working for LeapForce on Nile Project, I forgot to say.

  92. Hello,

    As I understand it, I can for both Appen as Social Media Evaluator and Lionbridge as Internet Assesor. But the question is: when the role as Social Media Evaluator will be at an end, may I receive other projects from Appen (having Google as client)?

  93. I am considering to apply the Internet analyst at Appen while still working at LB as the Internet assessor. Will above 2 job conflicts to each other (Internet analyst at Appen & Internet assessor at lionbridge)?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. It depends on the project, specify the name of the project at Appen so I can advise.

      1. Hi, Tim,

        Thanks for reply. I am working at Falcon Appen and internrt assessor at LB right now. I am considering to take the exam of Shasta at Appen(previos belong to Leapforce). My question is will the Shasta at Appen project in conflic with either Falcon Appen or Internet Assesor at LB? I am using different email account but same ip.

      2. Can I apply Shasta at Appen while working Falcon at appen and internet assesor at LB?


  94. I am considering to apply the Internet analyst at Appen while still working at LB as the Internet assessor. Will above 2 job conflicts to each other (Internet analyst at Appen & Internet assessor at lionbridge)?
    Thanks in advance.

  95. Hello Tim. I’m currently working on Yukon project of Leapforce now Appen. Yesterday I receive an email from Isoftstone for Online Ads Evaluator…it would be a great opportunity….but Is possible work for Appen and Isoftstone both??

  96. Hello, can I work at Falcon PT project and REGARDING PROJECT: Truckee at the same time?

    1. Hello,

      Falcon and Truckee projects are administrated by Facebook, so it means there is no option to combine these two projects under one IP/name.

  97. Hi Tim, I’ve been working with Lionbridge for one year now and I’m very satisfied with them and with you, I love your content on here. I’m currently thinking about joining Appen to get more out of my hours. I work as a Social Media Assessor. Is it possible for me to join the Nile or the Truckee program? Yukon of course is not an option, since it’s also heavily related to google. In the image above, it’s stated that those positions are at Leapforce, but I’ve seen a source, that those positions are at Appen, what is correct? If I undesrstood your article correctly, it’s okay for me to work with Appen, but not with Leapforce, right? Furthermore, should I mention that I’m currently working with LB when applying for Appen?

    Huge thanks in advance,

    1. Hi,

      You mentioned that you are working as social media assessor at Lionbridge, as far as I know this project has to do nothing with Google projects, this code name is for Facebook and Instagram projects. Could you clarify your current project at Lionbridge?

      1. Hi Tim,

        the exact position is the social media internet assessor, even though it sounds like it has something to do with social media(obviously), it relies highly on google. From time to time on bing, but usually it’s google.

      2. Ok I see the correct name for this project is Internet Assessor. This project is fully compatible with any Falcon projects at Appen (Facebook/Instagram) or Truckee/Nile/Shasta at Leapforce. Never mention that you work at another similar project or vendor when applying.

  98. Ah okay, my bad. I thought it would be called otherwise. Anyway, thanks for your quick answer! looking forward to your articles in the future.



  99. Hi, I’m working as Ads Assesor with Lionbridge (Google) and also Social Media Evaluator for Appen and so far no problems. Recently just was invited to work with Appen in their new project named “Arrow”. I use different accounts/names because my mother “works” with Appen while “I” work with Lionbridge. I just use the same ip and I’d like to know if I could join this Arrow – Google project too in Appen using the same computer, I didn’t want to deny it but I don’t want to lose both jobs either. Thanks

    1. Hello, I have never heard about ‘Arrow’ project before, could tell us more about this project?

  100. Hi, Tim,

    For Appen project, can I use 2 different account with same IP address to login the Appen Global / Appen Connect for 2 different project (Falcon and Shasta)?

    Thanks for your effort.

  101. Hello again, Tim:
    So I got an email from LB regarding my application and they’re asking me to have a Windows Live ID in order to participate in this project if I qualify, it’s the Multimedia Judge position on the other hand, I’m working for Appen now on the Falcon Social Media Evaluator project. Can I combine these two projects using the same IP address without me getting into trouble?

    Also, if I’m outside the US/Europe do I still need to pay my taxes here? I’m in Mexico, btw.

    1. Hello, yes you can, Falcon and Multimedia Judge belong to different platforms /customers.

      As to tax issue: Regardless of whether you are an independent contractor, a freelancer, or consultant, you will be considered as ‘self-employed’. What this also means is that you are responsible for doing your own taxes in a line with tax legislation of your country.

  102. Hey Tim
    I was recently removed from Lionbridge web search work.
    I have now applied there as a multimedia judge (India) and have received their response. However, I want to go for Web search evaluator position again because of the difference in the pay. Is it possible to apply for both from the same account?
    Also,since I’ll be later asked to provide my bank details, would it be okay if I provide them with my previous bank account details since I have only one bank account. Will it create any problem since it was already registered with them in my account.

    Would really appreciate if you could guide me on the same.

      1. okay. And what about the bank account I mentioned above? Would it be advisable to share the same bank account?

      2. Hello,

        I do not think that providing the same bank account you used for another project will be a problem.

  103. >Once your quality scores improve, you are then able to work up to 40 hours per week if you are unrestricted.

    >Leapforce doesn’t allow any rater to go over 26 hours per week(in case of Lionbridge it is even less, 20 hours per week).

    Combining two sentences, is Appen the only company that allows us to work up to 40 hrs?

    1. yes raters with unrestricted status are allowed to work 40 hrs per week

  104. Hello, short question, on the FAQ Website Lionbridge writes that it is ok two work on more than one Project with them (, i work on a Google Project (Web Search Evaluator) and now i wanted to work on the Maps or Ads project as a second project. Now you write lionbridge does not allow two projects at the same time. Is it a risk to apply to a second project?

    1. Some projects cannot be combined due to IP address conflict issue that is the reason why vendors (incl.Lionbridge) do not allow raters to combine some projects, however as far as I know the map analyst project can be combined with any Google rating project, because maps project is administrated by the different customer/from different platform.

  105. Hello,

    If you previously worked for Appen/RaterLabs Yukon, could you now be accepted to work for Lionbridge as a Multi Media Judge or do these projects conflict? I am not sure if Multi Media Judge is Google or what. Thank you.

    1. Yes you may try to apply for this project, Multi Media Judge is not a Google project.

  106. Thank you very much, I really needed this article. I have only these questions:
    I am a map quality analyst, I know that for what you’ve written I can dodo everythi I want for Appen,’s better to change email for the new position? It’s better to change laptop or Google Chrome profile? It is 100% sicure for sure? Thx

  107. Thank you very much, great article. I’ve only these small questions:
    I’m a map quality analyst for Lionbridge and, after have readded this article, I know that I can apply for any position with Appen, is better to change email? And laptop? Or I can apply the position normally? Thank you very much

    1. Hello, you do not need to change IP and laptop but I strongly recommend you to use a new gmail to apply for another project at Appen.

  108. Thanks for this article. I’m still wondering, I applied for Appen(Nile) and work at LB(Internet Assessor), they have any conflict? Also wondering about new Appen project ‘Jacinto’.

    1. Hello, Nile and Internet Assessor are fully compatible projects. At the moment I do not have any info about Jacinto project.

  109. Hi Tim,

    Just for your information.

    The pay rate in Indonesia for Arrow, Yukon, and Truckee is $5. The Internet Assessor of LB gets $8.82/hour

  110. Hi Tim,

    I’m currently working as social media evaluator for Lionbridge using my Messenger (Facebook) account. Can I work for Appen (projects like Java, Nile, Tigris, Yukoon, Truckee)…Not sure if any of these projects are compatible with my work at Lionbridge..

    Really appreciate your help,

  111. Hi,
    I’m currently working for LB as an Internet Ads Assessor, can I work as a Language Expert for Appen at the same time? Thanks.

  112. Hello,

    I’m currently working as an Internet Ads Assessor for LB, can I work as a Language Expert for Appen? I don’t know to which project this is related to…

    Thank you.

  113. Hi Tim,

    I’m currently working as social media evaluator for Lionbridge using my Messenger (Facebook) account. Can I work for Appen (projects like Java, Nile, Tigris, Yukoon, Truckee)…Not sure if any of these projects are compatible with my work at Lionbridge..

    Really appreciate your help,

    1. Hello, yes they are! For more info please refer to the project compatibility matrix and comments section.

    1. Hello, I do not have such information at the moment, please share with us if you get to know this info.

  114. Hi Tim,

    Your article says “Keep in mind that rater cannot combine two projects which are related to one customer” but the chart shows that Lionbridge map analyst is compatible with echo and index which are all Apple.

    I have the opportunity to take the test for map analyst at Lionbridge and cable, echo, java, sharp, and mobile at Appen which are all Apple.

    Really appreciate your help

    1. Maps project is fully compatible with any project. It is administrated from different platform and will no cause any conflict.

  115. Hello Tim,
    I apologize as you seem to get so many questions but I am a Lionbridge US Rater where it seems most of my tasks are in Youtube and I have recently been searching through your blog to find where I might be able to work in a similar contract capacity. I got a email back from ISoftstone basically offering me a Search Engine Evaluator position. I am aware that Lionbridge is through Google and ISoftstone is through Microsoft. Is it possible to do both of these positions without conflict?

    Any suggestions?
    Thank you for your time. – Becca

      1. Thank you Tim! One more side question would it matter if I am doing both from the same ISP and IP address?

  116. Hello, I’ve just been accepted by Appen, and they once in an email referred to me as a search engine evaluator, I’m just waiting on my updated id to get in for my i-9 and ill be set to start next week, the rate is 10 an hour, on your list I see that as Arrow, and I just confirmed that in raterlabs as arrow.

    But, when I applied, I was so desperately in need of a job, I also applied at LB, I applied for US Rater, and Ads Assessor,

    I’m currently waiting on my exam invitation for either one of those, it doesn’t mention which, nor do I know the project.

    Hmm, if they give me another project other than Arrow, I’m hoping that counts as a different client. Any experience with either of those two titles? Or more specifically, is Us Rater, which I think the exam is for, a social media ad rating project, from your experience?

    Can I pass the exam, as my start date for Appen is next month, and just cancel it if its also for Arrow?

  117. Hello, Tim. Thank you very much for writing this blog post and for the comments.

    I’ve been working for one of the Falcon (FB search engine evaluator) projects for Appen for a long time, over a year and it is one of the non US markets.

    Recently a job offer from Lionbridge caught my attention and I really want to apply. I have no idea of what the actual project is for but the name of it is ‘internet safety evaluator’.

    Do you know if I can combine both of these projects safely? The LB project requires a gmail account and smartphone (so i think it’s most likely for a Google/Android project and not FB), whereas the email I use for Appen/Falcon is not a gmail. I havent applied yet for the LB project but in the application process they ask about my previous work experience. Is it safer to not mention Appen at all, or maybe just mention it but say I no longer work for them?

    I want to be very careful with this because Appen is currently my main source of income and I cannot afford to risk it. However I do want to try to have LB as a side job because I really need to increase my income. My Appen project is for 20 hours weekly, whereas the LB job’s description says it’s from 10 to 20 hours weekly.

    Any input you could give my about this situation will be greatly appreciated. So far I haven’t completed the application process for LB, because I wanted to do some research first before I do somehting that could potential put my Appen position at risk.

    Cheers and thanks for all your tips!

    1. Hello, could you specify the name of the project at Lionbridge? Most likely you can combine the Falcon project at Appen and the project at Lionbridge because Facebook does not work with Lionbridge…

  118. Hey Tim,

    I contacted you earlier. Is Appen’s Arrow Photo Task Project compatible with Lionbridge’s Web Search Evaluator position?


    1. I assume no, because these two projects are administrated from one platform (raterhub) which belongs to Google.

  119. Hi Tim. You helped me get a job with Appen *yukon* in March and I’ve been with it ever since. I recently saw an ad for an online shopper with lionbridge. Do you know if I could work both? It says you need familiarity with google sheets.

  120. I work for Arrow (google) on Appen. Now I saw that Lionbridge offer a project named Multimedia judge (bing) can I apply for it?

    1. Hello, yes you can, these two projects are unrelated and fully compatible.

  121. I work for Arrow (google) on Appen but They fired me. Now I saw that Lionbridge offer a project named Multimedia judge (bing) can I apply for it?

  122. i’m working for LB as an Internet Ads Assessor, can I work as a Language Expert for Appen at the same time?

    1. Yes you can, these projects are unrelated and fully compatible with each other.

  123. I’m a web engine evaluator on appen can I apply for map quality analyst for Lionbridge?

    1. it depends on current business opportunities which are available in your locale, on average, it takes 7-14 working days to get to the stage of qualification, in some cases the waiting time might be less.

  124. Hi Tim,
    I’m working for LB as a Personalized Internet Assessor, can I work as an Online Ad Evaluator for iSoftStone at the same time?

    1. Hi,

      Yes you can, 0 risk of IP address conflict as these two vendors work with different clients.

  125. I’m a newbie to such kind of work so I want to ask if I can combine LB Internet Ads Accessor position (Google) with these Appen projects (considering that I have registered in both companies using the same e-mail address and intend to work from the same computer):

    – Amur (description: Test new E-commerce platform and get free products)
    – Arrow (improve search ads results for one of the world’s largest search engines)
    – Arrow Photo Task (description: Help improve the product and services of the world’s largest search engines)
    – Brickyard Ad (description: Help improve ad relevancy on a popular social media platform)
    – Deshka (same description)
    – Elkhorn (description: Help improve web page relevancy on a popular social media platform)
    – Imbler (same as previous)
    – McCoy (descPoription: Help improve ad/web relevancy on a popular social media platform)
    – Noyo (one-time survey about Facebook Search)
    – Porter (Help improve web page relevancy on a popular social media platform.)
    – Prospect Ad (Help improve ad relevancy on a popular social media platform.)
    – Truckee (Help improve ads quality for one of the world’s largest image sharing sites. Needs Facebook and Instagram account)
    – and the last project is the local transcription project

    I guess that LB Ads Accessor is compatible with:
    Amur, Noyo, Truckee, local transcription project.

    What about others? I will appreciate if you help me.

  126. I wasn’t sure where to post this but…
    I don’t know if you remember me you helped me a bit back with the Isoftstone transcription program and seeing if it was possible to work it with Lionbridge. Well, I made it into Isoftstone but unfortunately, the amount of hitts and work has hit this strange dry spell all of a sudden. I’ve been on Reddit and apparently these happen to many who work in that transcription project which isn’t just ENG-US but also Polish and Indian transcription.

    There will just be no work. At all. For weeks.
    They will contact you apparently when there is work again but seeing as you will be unable to continue the contract due to their lack of work which usually must be 3 hours a day for 5 days a week at least this is a bit ridiculous and they may just drop you entirely.
    Lionbridge is great and I keep chugging along but this is honestly super sad and really not great.
    I also have yet to be paid by Isoftstone for the 45 hours I completed for the last month of November. Basically, if you were to write article about the dangers of some of these projects I would instantly mention this Isoftstone one. it hit me like a bus and really is quite frustrating. I’ll be looking for other projects because you know you get back up and out there when you get knocked down but hopefully, I’ll at least see a paycheck from them soon.

  127. Hi, very interesting blog, help me a lot, thank you!
    I’m working on Internet safety for Lionbridge, can I work to Tigris project on Appen? Thank you 😊

    1. Hello,

      Yes, you can work on both projects without any risk related to IP address conflict.

  128. Hi Tim.
    I am one of the people you have helped immsensly with getting my foot in the door at both isoftstone and lionbridge. I was wondering however as the transcription project fell through at lionbridge if i can take a Isoftstone Search Engine Evaluator position while also working Lionbridge as a US Rater. I don’t think there is a overlap since one is Google and one is Bing but I just want to be safe and get your opinion.

    All the best!

    1. Hello,

      Yes you can work on both projects without any risk related to IP address conflict.

  129. Hi Tim,
    Can you confirm I still can apply to Lionbridge’s map analyst project even if I’m working on a Falcon project for Appen?
    Thank you

  130. Hi Tim, Can you work Lionbridge search engine, the OneDCG task that uses UHRS and Appen map relevance project Rattle that also uses UHRS with two different emails or UHRS logins? I already work with lionbridge but got an invite to test for Rattle. I need another job, but don’t want to loose the one I have.
    Thank you

    1. Yes it is possible, these two companies work with different clients, thus there is no risk of IP address conflict.

      1. So basically I can work for those projects in the same time? Just different email address?

  131. What about such projects like Bane or Peppermint at Appen? Bane mentioned google in their guidelines, is there any issue with LB search engine evaluator and this project?

    1. I have never heard about these projects, could share with us more info about these projects?

      1. Both are in Figure-Eight platform, Bane is suppose to help with google search results and Peppermint is about judging If a search result is relevant to a query on a fast paced image based platform.

  132. Hi Tim, Can you work Lionbridge search engine evaluator with OneDCG task (bing)that uses UHRS and Appen map relevance project Rattle (bing)that also uses UHRS with two different emails or UHRS logins? I already work with lionbridge but got an invite to test for Rattle. I need another job, but don’t want to loose the one I have.
    Thank you

  133. Can I work on bane curation on appen
    and personalised internet accessor (kannada) ( my local language) on lionbridge with same mail id given for both at the same time.!?

  134. Can i work bane curation on appen ( finding top 3 results for Google search query ) and personalised internet accessor (kannada) (my local language) on lionbridge at the same time with same mail id.!?

    1. Hello, yes it is possible and projects are administered in different platforms.

  135. Hi Tim,
    Thank you so much for your content. This is very helpful.
    I am currently working as SME to rate as on Facebook with Lionbridge.
    Can I work with Appen to rate ad on Facebook but I will use different FB account for Appen?
    Is it possible this way? My first name/last name will be the same but only FB account will be different.

    Thank you in advance!

  136. Hey Tim, how are you?
    I got a question, i hope you can help me.

    Is it possible to work for Appen in the project “Bane Curation”
    (The goal of the project is to build ground truth of top 3 results by a given search query and the geo location where the query is originated. Help us improve search results!)

    and for Lionbridge in the project “Side by Side Web Content Judge” (Comparison of queries from google and bing) ?

    The appen work will be done with the platform Figure Eight and the Lionbridge work will be done by using UHRS.

    I hope you will read this and help me, have a good day.

    Best regards

  137. Hiya, do you know if I can work at Lionbridge doing ISE and Appen doing Saluda project? I think it’s Facebook and or Instagram rating?

  138. Hi,
    I work for Lionbridge as a rater and i did validation quiz for arrow butler (Appen), but i haven’t work for arrow project yet, Will they fired me for it?

  139. Hello,
    Can i work in two projects for Lionbridge? I am working as Social Media Evaluator and a recruitment team from LB have sent me another invitation. And i am thinking, if is it some mistake from them?

    1. I recommend you to address your question directly to Lionbridge, but according to Lionbridge Policy a rater can work only in one project.

  140. Hello Tim,

    Can I work for Appen on ‘Bane Curation’ project and work for Lionbridge on ‘Ads Assessor’ position at the same time?

      1. Thank you very much for the information! Is it on hold for any langiuage tasks?

        And who is the client of this project?

  141. Hi Tim,
    Great website and very helpful. I am currently working on the Appen Bane project and have been asked to take part in the LB rating program exam. Would there potentially be a conflict? Both are for Google unless I am mistaken. And if there is a conflict, should/can I simply remove myself from Bane and continue with LB if I pass (with your exam simulation guidance)? The Bane workload is very erratic so would prefer work that at least on paper promises to be more steady. Or do LB do their checks before sending out an exam invitation and am I already in the clear? Thanks and take care.

    1. Hello,

      Bane project is not a Google project, it is third party project, thus it will not create IP address conflict…

  142. Hi I am currently doing Yukon for Appen. Can I do Yukon and Bing Ads (for another company) at the same time?

    1. Hello, yes it is possible as these projects belong to different customers.

  143. Thanks, great info for projects compatibility. I am currently working for Lionbridge as rater, is Bane Curation a compatible project? When I try to “work on this”, I got a page asks for info like “Company currently working as SEE*”, what’s the “best” answer here?

  144. I am working as a ISE for Lionbridge. Can I apply for Malta projects ( Deskha, Prospect PC or Brickyard PC) of Appen?

  145. Hi all. Tim, is Lionbridge Internet Safety Program compatible with Arrow Butler in Appen?

    1. It depends on what projects you are going to work in. IS is a Google youtube rating project so it means you cant work on Yukon, Arrow projects at Appen.

  146. Can I work as a rater for LB and do some work for different projects and companies which are done in UHRS?

    1. UHRS projects belong to Microsoft, it means that these projects can be combined with another projects.

  147. Hi Tim,
    Can I work as a map analyst for Lionbridge and Shasta project at Appen at the same time?

    Thank you for your further reply.

  148. Hi Tim,
    I applied for both Shasta project and Maps Analyst for Lionbridge since I didn’t know that I cannot work for both projects at the same time.
    I have just passed the qualification exam for Shasta and completed the required forms. Does it mean that I cannot take the qualification exam for Lionbridge anymore? Lionbridge’s exam will open in 4 days.
    My idea is to retain the qualification for Shasta and still go for Lionbridge’s exam. I’ll give up Shasta once I get offer from Lionbridge since Lionbridge is my first choice. I really demand suggestions. Thank you for your further reply.

    1. Hello,

      Normally this approach is not the best one when it comes to qualification for the same project with different vendors. It might lead to IP address conflict, I do not have info about Maps Analyst project IP address control process, but in your case I would continue to work with Appen and quit Lionbridge exam, otherwise having 2 active accounts even during a short period of time might lead to removal from the project.

  149. Hi, can i work 2 project at Lionbridge? I am a rater and i want to apply for transcription project.

    1. Hello,

      Normally according to Lionbridge policy, a rater can work only in one project at the same time, however you may try apply for a similar project at Appen.

  150. Hello,
    I work as internet assessor and i want to try for valhalla project at appen. Do you think i can work for both project?

    1. Hello,

      You can combine Internet Assessor project with any project at Appen except Yukon and Arrow.

  151. Hi Tim,

    I was thinking about starting working on ‘Bryant’ project for Appen. But I can not see what kind of project on the vender’s website anymore. Is the project related to the one of Ads Assessor position for Lionbridge? If there is no IP address conflict, it seems like I can start it soon.

    1. Hi,

      This project is definitely not related to Google, it means you can go for this project without any risk.

      1. Thank you very much for your info.
        I will register the project with thanks.

  152. Hi Tim,

    I’m an Ads Assessor for Lionbridge and since there’s a lack of tasks right now, I applied to Appen and now i’m in the qualification proccess. Can i work at Nile or Truckee at Appen while working as an Ads Assessor at LB? Would there be a problem about my IP adress if i use the same pc for both LB and Appen? Thank u so much (your blog is THE best!!)

    1. Hello,
      Yes, it is possible to work on Facebook projects, while working as an Ads Assessor at LB. These projectors unrelated and will not cause IP address conflict issue.

  153. Hello,

    I’m working as an ads evaluator at LB and i’m considering to work at vistula, pearl, nile or niobrara. what do u think about these projects?

    1. Hi. Can you explain please, what is Malta project? I thought these projects are available only in Malta (country). Am I wrong?

      1. Malta is just a code name a specific project, it is not necessarily mean that this project is exclusively available for raters only in one specific country.

  154. Hi Tim,

    I’m working as an Ads Assessor for LB. Can I apply to Teemwork’s Online Crowd Worker position? The contract for the position is from Microsoft but the training shows pages for Google too. Would it be safe?

  155. Can I work for OneForma’s Ad Rating Project if I already work as an Ad Rater for Lionbridge? I know that they’re for 2 different vendors (Google and Bing), but since the job is the same with each other, would it be safe?

    1. hello, yes you can! Additionally if you need support with blind test in ads assessor/arrow project, feel free to contact me for more info.

  156. Hello! I’m currently working as a Social Media Evaluator to rate Instagram ads for Lionbridge and recently got accepted to an Appen project to rate Facebook ads. Would it be a conflict of interest or should I just ignore the Appen project?

    1. Technically It should not create IP address conflict because rating platforms for Instagram and Facebook are different.

      1. But would it be a conflict if I’m using the same Facebook account for both projects? Because when I signed up for Lionbridge they also asked for my Facebook account.

      2. Most likely yes as far as I know facebook checks if the account is already in use for another facebook project.

      3. By the way the Appen project is called Saluda and the Lionbridge project is Social Media Evaluator.
