Define subject matters
  • The purpose of this procedure is to define the subject matter of the content being translated by the organization.


    This is only necessary for specialized industries that require specialized translations (i.e linguists with this specific domain knowledge) which are usually more expensive or take longer to do.

    1. From the topmost menu in XTM Click on Configuration.

    2. To the bottom and to the left click on Data.

    3. From the left-hand side menu, click on Subject Matter Factors.

    4. Select the Subject Matters to delete by clicking the checkbox beside their name, and from the top click on the blue delete subject matters image.


      It is useful for both administrators and project managers if you remove any unnecessary subject matter as it makes it easier to only assign those subject matters that apply to your company.

    5. Add Subject Matters by clicking the blue add subject matter image located at the top of the screen. Then scroll to the bottom and fill in the appropriate field in the blank text boxes that now appear.


      Keep the price factor and duration factor at 1.0. These items are used for legacy functionality from older versions of XTM
