- Price list: The price list will be used by Wordbee Translator to estimate the cost to translate the documents of the project and create the proposal that will be presented to your client. If a price list is not selected, then the Standard Price List will be used. For more information about creating a price list, see the Managing Clients section.
- Document Formats: This is optional and can be used to select a pre-defined file format configuration for the uploaded documents to be used during pre-translation. To learn more, see Supported Document Formats in the Features Section and Document Formats in the Administration Section.
