Related Information:

You are notified when a new job is created by the initiator.

You can estimate a schedule and budget for the job and mail your quote directly to the initiator. The initiator is notified when a quote is ready for review.

Quoting does not apply to jobs that are pre-approved or dispatched automatically, which go straight to the Dispatch and Kickoff step.

Quoting involves:

  1. Check the details of the job
  2. Creating the quote

Checking the Job Details

To check the job details:

  1. Open GlobalSight
  2. Enter your Project Manager user name and password and then click Login
  3. Click My Jobs->Ready
  4. Click the job to open it

  5. Check the general parameters of the job. For example the initiator and the source and target locales

  6. Review the workflow by selecting it and clicking Details
    Workflow Details

    • Optional: For new filters and if requested by the GlobalSight Team, run the files through a complete test job and validate the export
    • Optional: For un-editable files such as PDFs made from InDesign or similar source files, ask the DTP engineer to download, check and add the corresponding InDesign files (and other extracted text) as described in DTP
  7. Click Source Files and click each of the Primary Source Files to check them in the editor. Make sure to check:

    • Segmentation
    • Matches to the TM and the term base
    • Content not for translation
    • Content that was not extracted (Text View)

  8. Click Download Files to get the files added by the customer

  9. Click Comments and check for any editing, reviewing and/or testing requirements or reference files. For example the client can specify a particular resource

    • Check that the underlying profile workflows match when adding source files

  7. Click Upload
  8. Click Restrict Access
  9. Click Done. Contact the GlobalSight Team if an upload or import fails
