ATLANTA, GEORGIA, January 17, 2018—Advanced International Translations (AIT) has just released ExactSpent 3D, the latest version of ExactSpent, the personal time-tracking software for freelance translators. ExactSpent was created to help freelance translators count their time spent on a particular translation job, thus assisting them to accurately determine the value of the work performed, the equivalent payment, and even their own productivity.
Volodymyr Pedchenko, AIT’s Managing Director, says, “Every freelance translator needs to manage their time better doing translation or editing before it’s too late. ExactSpent allows understanding the full scope of all work assignments and the time input. It will help you to find all time thieves and savers, answer the question of when you waste time and help you work more efficiently.”
The specific nature of translators’ work is that it is often hourly paid, and that is why it is so important they have at their disposal software able to accurately count their time spent on jobs. ExactSpent is exactly the tool translators need.
Time is relative, so professionals cannot just rely on their own perception of time. Sometimes administrative tasks, such as correspondence with clients, phone calls, invoicing, billing, and dealing with organizational matters, take much longer than expected. ExactSpent allows counting all the time spent and then distributing it among the different tasks so that users can claim fair payment for their work.
Users who manage translation jobs with Translation Office (TO3000) daily can benefit from integration with ExactSpent as it’s now possible to open the tool directly from TO3000 to start to count their time. After finishing a job, a user can import the counting results in just a few clicks.
