I often do editing/proofreading on the basis of per hour payment. And I got tired keeping record of the start and finish times in a notepad and then summing up the total. Does anyone know of an application which keeps track of the time your work on the file and sums up the results? Also an application with clock faces showing current time in 3-4 selected time zones? I understand these will be two separate applications.

Thank you in advance for any information / links.

Time Stamp Sep 4, 2006

Dear Alexey,

I'm using Time Stamp for that purpose (it was recommended by another Proz user). It also accounts for tea/phone breaks, and saves each project as a file.

Get it free at www.syntap.com. It's a donationware, and I was so happy with it that I paid them very soon...

Doron

Time Stamp and Personal World Clock Sep 4, 2006

I second Doron's suggestion of Time Stamp. It is simple and does what you need, no more, no less.

At timeanddate.com you can see what time it is in different cities around the world, and you can make your own personal world clock to show the local time in the places that are important to you. Once you've created your personal clock, you can bookmark it for quick reference.

Thank you Sep 4, 2006

I knew it existed and a couple of years ago I came across a mention of such an application, but at that time it seemed not very important to me.

Thank you all for fast response and the information.

slack time Sep 5, 2006

I have downlaoded the tool, very useful:-)

I'm not sure what exactly is meant by 'slack time'. Yes, I know it refers to having TO for a cuppa, to answer a mail, the phone, etc....but why is it possible to set an hourly rate for it?

There is no proper definition of exactly what it is and implies in the Help file.

TIA:-)
