Has anyone heard of or seen any good tool less cumbersome than TO3000 to handle all aspects of translation billing from Project reception to Invoice delivering? I am starting to dislike TO3000 because it is just not very user friendly (i.e. too cumbersome and tedious). Thanks

TOM and TransProCalc Jun 18, 2008

TOM is a similar alternative to TO. Although when I tried it, I thought it was much more complicated to use. I've always found TO very easy to use but if you don't like it, you don't like it. There's also TransProCalc created by Anthony Baldwin. I haven't used it but you might like it, and it's free.

LTC Jun 18, 2008

LTC is fairly straightforward, though it is significantly more expensive than the alternatives, and support is spotty in some cases. Another disadvantage is the need for Crystal Reports to modify your forms. The reports are rather nice and good for getting a quick overview of your business.

Thank you fot these suggestions Jun 18, 2008

I am sort of hoping that someone has heard of a Filemaker Pro template that could be modified to perfectly match my needs. I don't use a lot of the TO features and I wish for some other ones which are missing. Oh well, maybe one day someone will have the same idea and have the time to implement it. If only I had the time!! Thanks anyway, I will check out these other links.
