Files & Folders Management

This is where you define the defaults for organizing your translation files & folders on your hard drive. In the Job management TOM will create the following folder structure:

...>[Main folder] >[Client folder] >[Job folder] >[Task Folder] >[Sub-Job folders]



[folder tree from Client folder downwards]


The basis for this structure is created here in User Settings.

a)the root path to your Client & Job folders
b)the internal structure of job folders ('Task Folders') that can be used to store translation files in their various processing stages or for job-related documentation.
c)the option whether to use the job name or the job ID as prompt when creating the job folder.
d)the option whether a new folder or folder structure is to be created automatically each time a job is created. These are the options:
automatic folder tree
