How does the revision deadline work?

How the deadline is determined
In order to calculate the deadline, we assume you can revise 1250 words per 12 hours.

Where can I find the deadline?
Under ‘find order’, you will see every assignment that you can accept, including the deadline. This deadline is final. Once you have accepted the assignment, you will be able to see the deadline there as well (figure 1). The deadline pointed by the arrow is the final deadline, the deadline in between is the interim deadline (1250 words/12 hours). 

It is important that you remain on schedule with your revision
The client usually has a deadline for the assignment. When you are working on the translation, the deadline is listed above the assignment. Fairlingo also tells you the amount of words you should be revising every day. If you do not keep up with this pace, the assignment is canceled and given to another translator. If this happens, you will only get paid for the work you have submitted at the Fairlingo platform for this particular assignment, so make sure you remain on schedule with your revision.

If there are no more texts to revise for this assignment
It sometimes happens that as a revisor, you are just as far with the corrections as the translator is with the translation. When you can't go further, please wait for a bit. The translator will continue.

When you're waiting and the actual deadline stroke because the translator didn't translate any more paragraphs, your deadline will move. This means you always have enough time to check the text. You will receive an email as soon as additional texts become available for revision.

Time zone
