Managing TM Systems
You can manage any number of TM systems in TOM, each with its own price matrix and reporting scheme. E.g., if for some clients or projects you use SDL Trados Studio showing CrossfileRepetitions, while for others you do not want to consider this match category, you will create two TM systems and assign them to clients and/or projects.
|•||To create a new TM system just type into the first free row in the list of TM systems (screen left ) or duplicate an existing one. To edit the new TM system select it from the dropdown list below the TM list and change the parameters. |
|•||Each system offers separate price scales for clients and translators, which can be automatically copied to new client / translator profiles, where they can be adapted individually. |
|•||TM systems can be switched in the TM window itself. E.g. if you assign a translation job to different translators Crossfile Repetitions won't apply and you want to use a TM system without CrossfileReps.|
|•||Translators can be linked with any number of TM systems, each with an individual price matrix. In a TM project any of these TM systems can be selected to match different clients' TM systems. |
|•||Each client's/translator's price scale is copied to a new TM project where it can be adapted further.|
TM Reporting format
A custom reporting format is associated with each TM price matrix in a TM System. It lets you:
|•||summarize the Trados and Across match categories, e.g. all categories charged for at the full price are to be shown in one category|
|•||name the custom categories the way you want|
Summarizing the categories
In the Assign match categories column, enter the numbers given to the default categories, e.g. '1' for the PerfectMatch category. As an example, if you want to summarize the "Repetitions" category and the "100%" category into one report category, enter "23" in that report category and name it in any way to describe what it stands for.
Make sure that the price scale in the client report corresponds exactly with the default price scale , i.e. default categories should be summarized only if they have the same price percentage assigned. Otherwise, the calculated prices won't match the reporting information: prices are always calculated on the basis of the default parameters and not on the basis of client report parameters.
(opt.) Daily workload
This value is used to calculate the minimum duration (in no. of days) for completing a TM based translation job to allow you assess the approximate project volume.
