Costs and metrics per Linguist report

Use this report to see the detailed information about costs per Linguist assigned to each workflow step in the selected project(s) and the metrics on which these costs have been based.

In this report, XTM Cloud displays information about costs and the word analysis coming from the Costs tab in Project Editor. These values can change when the project is being reanalyzed. Your XTM Cloud Administrator can enable automatic cost generation after the relevant project changes (for details, see Automation of continuous projects).

Business use case

This report is particularly useful whenever you need an overview of your vendor costs and scope covered across multiple projects.

Run the Costs and metrics per Linguist report.


This report is based on the project costs. If you have not generated them before, XTM Cloud will try to do so while running this report. If cost generation is NOT successful (the red error icon exclamation-circle-solid.png), the relevant project will not be displayed in the report. If costs have been generated with warnings (the yellow warning icon orange-warning-circle-exclamation.png ), by default these projects are excluded from the report. To change it, select the Include costs with warnings in Cost and metrics reports checkbox when running the relevant report.

All projects are displayed in one table. In it, each table row displays the data for one target language, in one project.
