Hi all,

Could you please share your experience with me and suggest a professional OS X based project management software for Translation agencies.

After having used Projetex for years I would like to get a straight software to use directly on my Mac platform without any interference of Windows/Parallels.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,
Sherefedin

TOM, FileMaker-based tool Jul 3, 2016

we have been using TOM (http://www.jovo-soft.de/) for a number of years now. Its MacOs compatibility was one of the primary reasons why we purchased it back in 2007 when we were still a Mac-only outfit.
I'd suggest you get in touch with the developer and ask for a demo version.

Stefan

Thank you Jul 4, 2016

Thank you Stefan for your suggestion. I have contacted jovo-soft and asked for some more details about their software.
Hope this will bring a more stable solution to my present configuration.

Best regards,
Sherefedin

It's not OS X, but web-based, so it does not matter which operating system you use. All you need is just a browser.

Any for freelancers besides TOM? Aug 26, 2016

I'm trying to move away from TO3000 as it's only Win based and I don't run my VM 24/7. I'm checking out TOM demo, but what other options are there?

Online doesnt work for me Aug 26, 2016



Hi Michael, thanks for your recommendation, but I don't want any of the online browser based tools.

With a local install, I can have a copy of database in time machine and another copy in dropbox, which would give me a backup automatically in laptop, desktop, cloud, and external hdd.

With online-only solution the PM software provider could go under and I could lose all my data in a day.

Hi Lennart,

BaccS has a system to backup (and restore) all of your important data. See e.g: http://www.ibaccs.com/BackupRestore

It also has a system to import all of your data from TO3000, making it extremely easy to test your existing data from TO3000. see e.g.: http://www.ibaccs.com/ImportExternalData
