Forget about late payments and time spent double-checking.
Simple yet flexible
In Smartcat, the number of payable words may vary depending on:
- the use of translation memory;
- the number of in-text repetitions;
- net rates.
By creating net rates you can set discounts. For instance, you can specify in it that repetitions are not paid, while 90% matches are calculated with a 30% discount. TM match percentage represents the degree of match between the source document segment and a translation memory segment. You can create different net rates for different clients and projects.
The Statistics page shows the word count, character count, and the number of pages in a document.

In projects where multiple translators are involved changes may sometimes occur, requiring the project manager to reassign the tasks. For example, more content or an updated TM may be added. Whatever happens, you will know exactly who translated how many words.
