When I start translating for a new client, say 'Obermayer', I want to create a dedicated glossary for non-translatables, a glossary for QA checks, a TM, a client folder and a project folder, consisting of the name of the client and the smart date format yyyy-mm-dd:


Here's a macro that asks you to type the name of the new client and then creates all necessary folders and files:


I'll add the actions needed to create the resource definitions for the NT and QA glossaries:


And maybe I'll let the macro create the project template (for the new client) for the Dashboard, with all necessary resources already checked.

I've added the creation of the NT and QA glossary resources and the project template for the new client.

Note that you'll need to create default resources, a default TM and a default project template, according to your preferred settings and screen layout.
