Hi,

once again I turn to you for your help.

This time it´s a matter of payments with Trados TMs.

I have a customer (we work together for almost 10 years now) that is going to implement some new rules regarding translation. First he wants all translators to work with Trados (I already do that, so it´s ok) and then he wants to access all my new TMs regarding translation work for his company (that, I don´t agree on), otherwise he will have his work done elsewhere. (…).

My question is … do I keep the prices I charge or do I increase them (to charge for the TMs)? What should I do?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have a nice Sunday.

Manuela

There is one thing obvious about CAT tools, by using CAT tools they will substitute more expensive skilled translator\'s labor with inexpensive new translators once they got a TM from skilled translator.



Not really. While a TM will ensure that even a new translator (who says that these are necessarily cheaper?) can stick to established standards of terminology and wording, handing out a high-quality TM to a poor translator means pretty much a wasted investment.



To avoid surrendering more than what\'s called for, why don\'t you deliver the pre-cleanup version?
