- Price lists (select supplier and click "Prices")
- Find supplier services page ("Suppliers" > "Supplier services")
-Supplier selector popup (opens when you assign a supplier or group to a job)
The shown ratings are per supplier, language pair and task and for the past 3 months. As with other BA data, ratings of jobs are taken into account a few days after job completion.
