When using Trados, apart from basic price, it also need to pay attention to Fuzzy Match Match (repetition and identical word), Internal Fuzzies Matches and Context Match – (CM).

## Rate interpretation:

For instance, we have 2 segments “I have a friend” and “I have a pet”. In 2 segments, out of “friend” and “pet”, there are 3 identical (over 4 words) words (I have a). On the other hand, Fuzzy Match (repetition and identical word) is about 75%. Thus rate is selected in the above list of  84-75.

• Rate No.1 is highest rate. It is when you want to brush up the entire document, to improve the quality of entire document.
• Rate No.2 and rate No.3 are normal rate. In case of Match 100% (identical up to 100%) rate at No.2 is 10% and No.3 is No pay. There are also some mistakes but 74-50 is rate with payment rate at 100% of price (For example, the price at 300VNĐ/word, price rate at 74-50 is also at 300VNĐ/word), so this rate can be called as a standard rate.
• Rate No.4 is a rate that does not pay attention to the quality. This is a rate that Trados using translator is recommended not to get any translation contract/requirement.

## The change of number of words under rate:

At rate No.1:

1500 x 0.3 + 1000 x 1.0 + 1000 x 1.0 + 500 x 1.0 + 5000 x 1.0 + 4000 x 1.0 = 11.950

At rate No.2:

1500 x 0.1 + 1000 x 0.3 + 1000 x 0.3 + 500 x 0.5 + 5000 x 1.0 + 4000 x 1.0 = 10.000

At rate No.4:

1500 x 0.0 + 1000 x 0.1 + 1000 x 0.2 + 500 x 0.3 + 5000 x 0.5 + 4000 x 1.0 = 6.950

If there are 13.000 words at first, the number of words at rate No.4 (6.950) is equivalent to ½ in comparison with rate No.1 (11.950).

Supposing basic price is 300VND/words, the end use price at rate No.1 is 3.585.000VNĐ and end use price at rate No.4 is 2.085.000VNĐ.

At rate No.4, the number of words in original document decrease a half and price is dropped down at 150VNĐ/từ. Please pay attention!
