Use the Languages table to keep a list of working languages and details such as qualifications etc. Important are the following checkboxes:
|•|| means "possible target language".|
|•||Even if mother tongue is activated you need to check "active" if you want a language be understood as "possible target language".|
|•|| means "only source language" and automatically applies to all languages not set to "active".|
From the active/passive settings TOM will generate suggestions for language combinations that will show up in a dropdown list in the price table just below the languages table (see next paragraph).
The entries in this table are fully integrated into the Project Management. These are the options:
Language pair / Service
When a Language pair is entered here (e.g. ES-DE), this Translator will be shown in a dropdown list in the Project Management, whenever a language pair "ES (source lang) - DE (target lang)" is created there. Also terms like "Layouting" will be identified identified in sub-projects, whenever a sub-project is named "Layouting".
Shown as additional information along with the price in sub-projects.
The price entry is shown in the field "Unit price" in sub-projects, once the translator has been selected for the project.
This can be used as a filter in sub-projects to offer only translators marked as "Preferred" for a particular language pair or service. (For more information read Default translators vs Preferred translator.)
Note: The filter can be activated by default. To activate it go to .
Enter the pricing unit here (line/word). Default value is the one stated in Program settings. You may also enter e.g. "Hour" here.
|•||The dropdown list in this field can be edited in the Program settings - Projects.|
Average characters per word ("Aver.")
Used in automatic conversion of line-based prices to word-based prices.
T / Misc
The default value checked is _T_ for Translation: the price will be offered in the Translation section in sub-projects.
|•||If you want this price entry to be offered in the Miscellaneous Orders section as well check the "Misc" box. |
|•||You can check only one, or both options. |
The "Effective Price" shows the original translator price converted to one's own currency and pricing unit. See Effective Price
