File management - clients

QuaHill allows you to keep track of important files of every client, such as agreements, emails, an NDA, etc. Files are stored in a central folder where a subfolder is created for every client; the subfolder contains a particular client's files. Files are accessible either from the client's details or directly, using e.g. Windows Explorer or another file manager.

File management - vendors

Every vendor can have his/her own folder where agreements, NDAs, etc., are kept - the same as with clients. However, a vendor who has registered in the system using the web portal can upload files containing his/her CV.

File management - projects/quotes

Different folder structures can be defined for projects/quotes in code lists. These are subsequently used to generate folders and subfolders in a project/quote. The system can be set up so that it automatically creates folder structures while saving a project/quote for the first time. At your discretion, you can generate folders from the folder structures according to the job types the project/quote contains. Files to be accessible by vendors can be added to the folders so that they can download them using the vendor web portal (this applies to projects). After completion of a project, you can make the files accessible to clients so that they can download them using the web portal.

When generating a project from a quote having a folder with files generated, are the folders and files transferred to the project?

Yes. The whole folder structure is transferred from the quote to a newly generated project including all sub-folders and files.

What if I need to make a change in a file which is saved in QuaHill?

You can open the file directly from QuaHill or using any file manager (Windows Explorer, Total Commander) directly on the disk.

Does the system distinguish whether a saved file is a source file for translation, Translation Memory, etc.?

Yes. Every file must be assigned a type selected as a value from a code list. The file type list is fully editable and it is possible to add other file types.

Why do I have to choose a file type when uploading a file to a project?

It is not necessary. If a default type of file is selected for a folder within the folder structure code list, it is automatically assigned and you do not have to fill it in.

Having evaluated different solutions for our order management system over a period of 18 months, we identified Quahill as the system with the best value for money. Stealth Translations are very happy with their choice as the system does exactly what we need it to do and more. David has also been extremely helpful with installation, troubleshooting and very flexible in terms of considering various improvements/adjustments to the system which we feel would improve efficiency.
