Price profiles for "hybrid" jobs (PE&TRA)

We often have projects with some content pretranslated both from the TM and other content from from MT.

We want to apply the providers' post-editing rate for "new words", but then the TM match rates are recalculated as a percentage of the new PE base rate. However, we want to apply the fuzzy and 100% match rates that are based off of a providers translation rate since translation of fuzzy matches is a different task than post-editing.

What solutions have you found for setting up the vendors' profiles so that this is done without having to manually modify the rates of each "hybrid" project?


We have been thinking about the same thing recently.

We got as far as setting up a price profile with fixed TM rates iso percentages. That way you can set 'regular' rates for perfect matches and any fuzzies you want, and use MTPE rates for the other ones. The main drawback here is that you need to manually fill in every separate rate, for each match type, job type & language combination. That's a LOOOOOOT of work. So, my next thought was writing at a macro that would be able to do this, but I haven't looked into this in great detail yet.

If anyone has better ideas, I'd be very happy to hear about them. Otherwise, if you're interested in exploring a macro like this jointly, let me know.
