TTMEM.com Job Posting System - Quick Guide
A job posting system has been created for outsourcers seeking quotes from language professionals.
 
HOW THE TTMEM.com JOB SYSTEM WORKS
Here we present a simple explanation of how the language job system works.
1. TTMEM.com job posting system is a free service for outsourcers as well as for language professionals registered on the TTMEM.com website.
2. An outsourcer posts a translation job. The job posting should include the language pairs, project description, quoting deadline as well as other important and required fields.
3. Every job is posted immediately (no need to wait for vetting or reviewing by the site staff) which helps you save time and immediately reach the target candidates. Hovewer, please remember that every posted job is reviewed internally by the site staff and may be deleted at any time if the posted job doesn't comply with posting rules.
4. Every bid is placed immediately so that every user has an equal chance to win the job.
5. Language professionals receive email notifications when jobs of their interest are posted.
6. Language professionals who express interest in the posted job and meet the job restrictions may submit quotes to the poster.
7. Every time a bid is made, the outsourcer receives an email notification.
8. Every time the job status has changed, the outsourcer receives email notification.
9. Every chosen candidate receives an email notification with the information that the job was awarded to him/her.
10. After receiving the quotes, the outsourcer may choose one or more service providers for the job and contact them directly.
 
 
JOB STATUS
The TTMEM.com Job Posting System uses 4 different job statuses:
1. RECRUITMENT (bordeaux color): informs website users that the job is in the recruitment phase. It can be changed to status number 2 only by the outsourcer by modifying the job status to AWARDED next to the chosen candidate. This status is available for jobs using the quoting method via TTMEM.com as well as for the jobs with the quoting method by other means.
2. AWARDED (green color): informs website users that the job has been awarded. It is applied by the outsourcer next to the chosen candidate. It can be changed to status number 3 only by the chosen translator. This status is available only for the jobs using the quoting method via TTMEM.com.
3. IN TRANSLATION (light blue color): informs website users that the project is being translated by the chosen candidate. It is applied by the chosen translator and informs the outsourcer that the translator acknowledges his/her choice. It can be changed to status number 4 only by the outsourcer. This status is available only for the jobs using the quoting method via TTMEM.com. Changing the job status from AWARDED to IN TRANSLATION is fundamental for the chosen translator as it helps him/her increase by 1 point the number of jobs won through TTMEM.com Job Posting System in the recommendations label in his/her profile.
4. TRANSLATION FINISHED (dark blue color): informs website users that the job was completed by the chosen candidate and/or that the job completion deadline has finished. This status is available only for the jobs using the quoting method via TTMEM.com.
 
The outsourcer as well as language professionals should use the above statuses carefully as they are the source of very essential information for all the users of this website.
