If you’ve been looking for a way to make money from home on the internet, Lionbridge has several work-from-home opportunities you should check out. The positions they are actively recruiting for are Internet Assessor, Internet Judge (US only), Labeling Editor (US only), and BT Segmentation Editor. I can vouch for the company’s legitimacy, because I know someone who recently started working for Lionbridge, and I am in the process of testing for one of these positions myself. Of course, my ultimate goal is to work from home and be my own boss. But, until that happens, I figure if I have to work for someone else I may as well do it from home in my PJ’s while drinking way too much coffee. Read on for more information about these positions.
Lionbridge Internet Assessors Program
An Internet Assessor is also known as a “rater.” Brief Job Description: “The Rater role involves evaluating results of a web search, for appropriateness to search query input. Participants will be required to provide their opinion of the result displayed based on a set of guidelines we provide.” Basically, you rate a given landing page based on its relevancy to the search query.
Hours & Pay: The hours are flexible, you work the hours you want to work. They ask that you be available for a minimum of 10 hours/week, and the maximum is 20 hours per week unless you are authorized to work more hours on a project. This position pays $14.50 per hour.
Availability: Lionbridge just recently started recruiting for this position in the US again. They are also actively recruiting for this position in many other countries.
This is the position I am currently testing for. If you apply for this position, be aware that it is an Independent Contractor position. You will not be an employee of Lionbridge, and you will not be eligible for insurance benefits, etc. More info about the job and countries they’re recruiting for are available on the Lionbridge Internet Assessor Program website.

The successful candidate will work within a web-based application comparing user search engine queries and advertiser keywords with website landing pages. The Labeling Editor must judge the relevancy and relationship between the query, keyword, ad snippets on the page and the page itself.”
Hours & Pay: Listed as “Part time – Regular.” 10-20 hours per week. Although the pay rate is not listed on the job description page, a friend who was recently hired in this position informs me the pay rate is $14 per hour. Again, once you apply for a position you will receive an email with more detailed information.
This position is hired as an employee of Lionbridge, and you will be eligible for benefits after a trial work period. You can find more information about this position on the Labeling Editor website.

From my experience, once you apply for the position you will receive an email with a more detailed job description and pay rate.
