Time-based plans vs character-based plans

Time-based plans:

Time-based plans have no usage limits. You are charged a monthly/half-yearly/yearly flat fee and then you can use GT4T as much, or as little as you want. 

  • Time-based plans have no usage limits. You can use all the features, dictionaries, the included MT engines as much as you want with no cap, with no extra charge.
  • You can only activate one computer at the same time but you can move your license freely between computers.

Character-based plans:

Character-based plans have no time limit. You get charged whenever you select some text and hit a GT4T shortcut.

  • Character-based plans have no time limit, no minimum charge, no monthly subscription fee. You only pay when you are using the GT4T shortcuts to translate or check dictionaries.
  • When you select some text and hit the GT4T translation / dictionary keyboard shortcuts, the selection is IMMEDIATELY counted and deducted from the characters you have bought, even though sometimes MT engines fail to return translations.
  • If you are using the multi MT engine feature, the total character counts = selected characters * number of engines.  For example, if you use three MT engines to translate the word “love”, the character count will be 12.
  • When you select and hit the dictionary shortcuts, the selection is also counted. The selection is only counted once regardless of number of dictionaries you use. For example, you use three dictionaries to check the word “love”, the character count is still 4.
  • If you only use the dictionary / glossary feature, buy the Slim Plans which do not include MT data as they are much cheaper per character.
  • Don’t worry too much about dictionary character count. As you only check short terms or words with the dictionary feature, 1 Million characters will last like forever.
  • In short, you select and hit the GT4T shortcuts, your selection is counted and you are charged.

How to use DeepL Pro outside the European Union

DeepL Pro is not selling outside the EU. If you are a resident outside EU and you want to purchase DeepL Pro, you can purchase a GT4T DeepL Pro plan instead. GT4T offers build-in DeepL Pro access that allows you to use DeepL Pro without having to purchase a subscription from DeepL.

You know what, you will actually end up saving money as GT4T offers very flexible plans. The time-based plans have NO usage limit and the character plans do not have monthly minimum fees or even time limit. You pay only for what you use.

GT4T already fully supports IATE

#GT4T already supports the new #IATE by acquiring the data and representing them in a pop-up. Users can even use arrows or numbers keys to select a translation and insert to where he is typing without having to open the browser.

Difference between GT4T’s ‘fix MT translation’ and ‘RyS Translation Workflow Automation Package 2018

GT4T’s ‘fix MT with glossary’ is not simple search and replace.

If a word is CONSTANTLY translated wrong, simple replacing of the MT translation with your own translation will work.

But with GT4T it doesn’t matter what MT will translate a word into as it actually replaces the source word.

GT4T glossary file contains ‘source – target’ pairs, not ‘wrong translation – correct translation’ pairs.

The post-translation of GT4T works like this.

1) Mark a word as untranslatable so the word will remain untranslated in the translation.
2) Replace that untranslated word in MT translation with your glossary.

This feature thus can be used to mark ‘untranslatable’ terms. If you add a term to GT4T glossary leaving the translation the same with source, that term will always remain untranslated in MT translations.
