Dmitry So you don't have any Source/Target sub-folders in your client folders?
Very few. It would only complicate things for me. I only create a special subfolder if there are like too many files for 1 project (I don't have a definition of "too many" here. I just get them in an individual folder if I feel like they're visually cluttering the main folder?). And I have 2 subfolders in one agency f. for 2 of their clients whose documents I translate often.
Dmitry How do you sort files to make sure you send the translated file and not the original file?
I add _RUS at the end of the file name, yes. And I sort my files by date so they look like this in the folder:
See? I have three files: the original .pdf, the converted .docx, and the translation. And I can tell the date I received the order and the date I sent the translation out - by the date of a file. Although I store all information about my projects in Protemos so I don't really need to look at those dates.
Dmitry I noticed that for some of my clients there's just so much recurring work, that I need to have a folder for each and every project to keep my from getting lost
See, I just don't need old files to work on a project because TMs, you know. I deal with words only, word documents mostly, no pictures or videos or idk games, whatever you game translators include in your project files And when I (rarely) need to find certain documents, I use the search function, it's great in Mac OS, searches not only titles but inside the files, too.
