6 Ways MYL’s Back Office Can Make Your Job Easier
Streamlining work processes is important to turning jobs around quickly and efficiently. This is why MYL has provided a back-end system to help linguists manage their work flow. Here are six things that can help make your job easier:
1. Communicate with Clients directly
One of the system’s most important features is the Job Enquiry function, which allows for two-way communication between linguists and Clients. After you submit a Job Enquiry form (which you can also use to send attachments), the Client will receive an e-mail notification and can reply via e-mail.

2. Manage your deadlines
Back Office tracks the time remaining for completing every job. If you find you need more time to complete your work, you can go to Back Office to request a time adjustment. The system features an option for time extension and a text field to insert reasons for the extension. MYL will then let you know if the extension can be granted, or assign the job to another linguist if necessary.
3. Refer back to completed jobs any time
With Back Office, you can go back to any of your submitted work and any old jobs you have done and use them as reference for future work you need to do.
