Claim a Job
This article is for Translators, Editors, and Reviewers.
If the claiming setting has been enabled on your workflow step by your customer, you'll receive an email notification when there is a Job that can be claimed. This allows you to claim available content rather than waiting for work to be assigned to you. If the claiming feature hasn't been enabled, you won't be able to claim a job.
Content must be in a Job for claiming.
To claim a job:
- Log in and go to your Jobs Dashboard.
- Select Available to Claim from the left-hand side of the page to filter work by what can be claimed.
- Click Claim to add work to your queue. The Claim Work dialog will appear with a breakdown of the job's content by context (if available), or by source file (if there isn't any context). You can claim all or some items from the presented list.
Once claimed, the job will appear in the Current Work list where you can then start to work on it by clicking Open.
If you're unable to complete the claimed job, you can submit the translated portion (in the CAT tool), and then use the Unclaim action by going to Current Work > Actions > Unclaim. This will release the remaining portion of the job for others to claim.
