Currently, you can specify pricing only by word, hour or total. Some countries, notably Germany, charge by the line. Why not add line, and also "page" as a charging option.

Lars,

You can do that under the "other pricing" field. I do that every time I bid for a De>En project originating in countries where line counts are the standard, like Germany.

Yes, this feature could easily be realised in the software. Also I find it stupid that the pricing is automatically asumed to be in US-Dollars. Probably most transactions in our trade are done nowadays in Euro.

Heinrich,

Had you investigated further, you'd find out that if you click on the currency drop-down menu, all the other currencies will appear and you can select your own.

Again, the "other pricing" field states:

"If the pricing for this bid doesn't fit the format above, or if there is additional pricing information for this bid, please enter it into the box above."

This is where you place your per-line bid. Very simple and no need to install another feature.

HTH,
Marcus
