The company is reliable and big one, however the job isn’t coming quite often for all the countries so it’s not something to rely on. Most likely it’s a good short-term part time occupation with a decent outcome for the hours consumed. We never worked for LionBridge so we don’t know from first hand but working for this company includes all the benefits of the work-at-home engagement such as flexibility, less dependence from outdoor factors, more relaxation and privacy whilst working for real money.
