Vendor TM rate for different job types

Peter Kolar 2 years ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated by Mateusz Trzeciak (XTRF Deployment & Training Specialist) 2 years ago 2


Is there a way to set different TM rates for specific jobs?

For example, Translator A is a translator and does proofing as well. For translation jobs he has set default TM rates, that vary according to the match rate type (50-74%, 75-84% ...).

But for proofing all match types (50-74%, 75-84% ...) should be set to 100% of payment. XTRF automatically suggests his default TM rates and we have to manually change them to 100% each time. Is there any way around that?

Kind regards,


Hi Peter. I have been discussing this issue with XTRF and it is subject to Support ticket XHD-32204. Mentioning this as a reference for the XTRF rep who might be reading this. The theory is that you can use your general TM rate percentage values for all job rates and then choose to overwrite a specific job per language combination with fixed values, as shown in the screenshot. XTRF confirmed that this is the system design. Problem is that I have not been able to get it to work. This is currently with XTRF Support.

@XTRF: Could you please update this ticket with your answer once the investigation of XHD-32204 is complete? Thanks.

Hi All,

just like Sancho wrote above - this should work with setting fixed TM Rates in specific rates in price profile. I've tested this with different scenarios and discovered an inconsistency within this feature. This was reported to DEV team and is currently under investigation.
