Sub-Project Overview

Top  Previous  Next

This overview displays sub-projects in their project context and is far more detailed than the Project list. Many project work tasks can be performed here.


To access the sub-project list select Sub-projects  from the  Go to ... menu
While in other screens in the project management area click this icon: TP_liste
- While in single-project view this will automatically show the related sub-project.
- While in project list you will call all sub-projects related to all projects currently listed if the Shift key is held. Otherwise the last found set is displayed
You can make a default setting (see  Start Options   button in Start screen) to automatically open the SP List on launching TOM.

Project work

The SP List provides many processing features: translator selection, job assignments, price and deadline entries. Especially when a large number of sub-projects need to be attended to this is the ideal environment and is much more direct and efficeint to work with than opening SPs in a separate window.


Batch functions

The  Sub-projects  menu offes time-saving batch functions.

Select default translators: inserts the assigned default translator with the highest priority (if assigned) into each listed sub-project.
Assign Studio xml files and create TOM analyses (only Trados Studio). Use this feature to quickly create a large number of TM projects in TOM.
Open the folder containing the xml files.
Execute the above command. You will see a little window showing the first sub-project.
Drag and drop the appropriate xml analysis file into this window. TOM will record the file path and jump to the next subproject.
Repeat this process until you have reached the last sub-project. At that point TOM will automatically use the stored file path information to create TM analyses for each sub-project in one go.
