Good work with good pay for initial starter. Pros is you have to keep checking all the time about task availability. That can be sometimes at midnight.

Nice choice for remote working

Lionbridge provides exactly what they advirtised - the opportunity to work on small remote projects from whichever location you choose. For each project you will get instructions, will do a test or sometimes two and get started for the project's period.It is great choice for some extra income at times, but tou never know when the next opportunity is coming, so you can not plan your other arrangements accordingly. Sometimes the projects offered start very quickly and sometimes one needs to wait.


work from anywhere


no notice when a project would start

Five Star Employment

I worked at Lionbridge for my first full-time job post-graduation. Unlike at my previous jobs, Lionbridge had encouraging management and co-workers to talk to, as well as relatively solid and clear work to attend to. In all truthfulness, I actually started to look forward to work! Believe you me when I say Lionbridge is a five star company.


Peaceful work culture

Assez agréable; cela dépend du contrat

Assez agréable; cela dépend du client. On 0ne sait pas toujours qui mène, le client étranger ou Lionbridge? Les normes dans d'autres pays ne sont pas les mêmes.


Flexibilité d'horaire


le travail n'est pas ce qui était affiché

Good supplementary income.

The hiring exam is tough, but if you study and read the workbook you can pass! It took me a few weeks to get a hang of the job and when work would be available but once I settled in I was able to work for at least an hour a day. Its definitely not a part time income, but if you need an additional $200+ a month to cover expenses or to add to savings, this is a great way to do it.

Difficult exam, inconsistent availability of work

No work and poor communication

There is almost never any tasks available, so it is virtually impossible to actually work. There is no job security at all, as you can be let go at any point in time with no explanation and no way to inquire or appeal the decision. Instructions for the tasks are always confusing, contradictive, and changing. It is not possible to anticipate the desired ratings given this utterly flawed system.


Work from home


No work, no job security, poor communication

The most enjoyable part of the job

The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to work remotely. No obligation to go to the office each day and avoid traffic and loosing time on the road.

Exactly what it says it is.

If you have trouble managing your time this isn't for you. You get paid by task not by the hour and if you don't know the textbook you by heart you can make half of what they state. However if you do your homework this can be an amazing opportunity .

Good company

9-5 job in an office performing standard translation and post-editing tasks. I learned to use new computing applications. Very well managed and successful business. Tight deadlines. Good communication with coworkers.

Great team, energy and dynamics, however the production rhythm combined with the quality expected is stressful

Great team, energy and dynamics, however the production rhythm combined with the quality expected is stressful. You are expected to be a productive asset.

Bueno trabajo para empezar la carrera

Aprendi mucho en esta emprezar y es un lugar genial para los nuevos bachilleres pero el salario no vale la presion et el estres causado por todas las exigencias exageradas de los clientes.

good place for start

is a good place to start your adventure with localisation. One gets to learn a lot. People fun to work with. Management not so good. A lot of work no bonuses. Hardest part is you do not know if the management sees the good work you do, no motivation.

A great school for bullies

A typical day of work might either include a micromanager breathing on your neck and sending over 15 emails for the same topic or an absolutely indifferent manager who doesn't even know your name. I learnt that no matter how unprofessional the attitude is, no one, and I mean not even the HR will do absolutely anything to make things better. There are no salary augmentations, no bonus, no coaching to learn new things. The evaluation when they are bad are asked to be rewritten to match the bell. You are a slave of the customer, not there to help, improve or even show them new options. No. You just shut your mouth and move files. There are people who spend their whole day in Facebook, over the phone talking or chatting and in the kitchen. Then there is a small group who has all the client's, responsibilities, workload, stress and no help. You will be asked to lie on your timesheet to hide the level of occupancy. In the last year, two different county managers left their post. Over the past five months, some people have had four different managers. The organization changes every single day and you have no idea where the business is going.


Close to a metro station in downtown Montreal


oh, yes wait, they won't be there anymore: moving to Brossard

A Great First Experience in the Field of Translation
