The lowest cost allowed by this provider to perform an activity. If the amount of an activity is less than the minimum charge, the amount specified as the minimum charge will be used instead. For example, a provider will perform a service only if he receives at least $20. The provider translates a document, and his pay is calculated to be $19.38. Because you specified the provider's minimum charge for this price profile, the system automatically enters “$20.00” into the Total Agreed field in the Payables tab.
The price list attached to the provider's price profile. Generally, your standard rates for a given activity and/or language combination are defined in the price list and then applied to all or a select group of providers. For example, you have the price list Price List for Eng-Ger/Ger-Eng, which contains your standard rates for all projects in English-to-German and vice versa. A provider often performs German-to-English translations but did not propose rates which differ from your standard rates. Therefore, you created the price profile USD ENG-GER for the provider and attached Price List for Eng-Ger/Ger-Eng to it. Now whenever you select “USD ENG-GER” for an activity, the rates are taken directly from Price List for Eng-Ger/Ger-Eng.
When you click on the price list, you are taken to a page where you can edit it. For a description of the page, click here: Create Price List Rate.
|Default Contact Person||The default individual who will receive all messages whenever this price profile is selected. For example, John Smith is the default contact person for Language Providers Inc.'s price profile called LPI Standard. Whenever you select LPI Standard as the price profile for an activity, the system automatically suggests John Smith as the contact person.|
|CAT Grid||The percentage of the overall rate allotted to each translated segment and determined by how well a segment matches the entries stored in either your or the provider's CAT tool.|
|Discounts & Surcharges||Any additional amounts to be deducted from or added to the total sum.|
