Field settings

Hello,


from a new proud owner of CT following 20 years with Trados with much hardship and loss of money.


Even though I got started pretty quick I do have few questions:


- Are there any field settings where I can infer the client's name, the source language of the documents, project manager etc.? 


- Do I need "MYMemory MT" or can I switch it off somewhere?


- I there an option to count standard lines (55 characters including spaces). A person offering this kind os software could make some money, because there is no such thing for Mac as is for Windows (e.g. PractiCount, Anycount etc.). I searched for days on end and couldn't find anything


- How can I increase the font size in the pane where the concordance results appear?


Thank you for your help and best regards

Nicolette




Hello,

Thank you for your replies! I will certainly check out the billing option with the 55 characters.
Have a nice weekend
Nicolette

 

Wait a minute... Now what's this?

People who don't want to spend money, can probably create it themselves. I think it isn't too difficult (no/hardly any scripting skills required) to create an Automator Workflow that does the following:


  • Activate Statistics in CT
  • Save the Statistics
  • Open them in a spreadsheet
  • Select the appropriate cell


  • Copy the value to clipboard
  • Close spreadsheet
After that, you could continue the Workflow, and
  • Open an invoice template
  • Paste the value in the appropriate cell
or
  • Divide the value by 55 (or other value, would require extra Workflows)
  • Multiply with your rate

There currently is no default feature for this, but see my request here.


Regarding your suggestion to the developer, some years ago I respectfully suggested the same: CafeCount, a free or low-priced counting app.

Moi: I don't know.


But I suppose it can be found in either the Statistics or Billing preferences.

You took your time.


- Are there any field settings where I can infer the client's name, the source language of the documents, project manager etc.? 


When you set up a project, or in the Project Configuration (under File in the Menu).



- Do I need "MYMemory MT" or can I switch it off somewhere?


You can disable it in Edit | Preferences | MT services.


- I there an option to count standard lines


I don't know.


- How can I increase the font size in the pane where the concordance results appear?
