⍰ What is the difference between translator and company subscriptions?

When using translator subscription, the account is linked to the name of the user. The user himself/herself is responsible for any actions taken under the account.

Tygeris Structure

When using company subscription, the account is linked to the name of the organization. The organization administrator is responsible for any actions taken under the account. There must always be at least one organization administrator.

⍰ Does Tygeris behave differently based on the subscription?

No, the main differences are available features.

Regardless of the subscription, the way of work is always the same:

  1. Private user or organization administrator manages all resources (translation tools, workflows, users) which can be used throughout all projects.
  2. Projects must include one or more orders. Projects as well as orders can contain specific files and settings available only within them.
  3. Orders include documents to be translated which are assigned to users based on their language skills.
  4. Documents can be translated into all supported languages.
  5. Translations are submitted and can become documents to be translated into other languages.

Tygeris Roles

⍰ What is the difference between user and co-operator?

When using translator subscription, user is the person owning the account. This user can link other people to their account (i.e. granting access to various projects or specific documents). These linked users are called co-operators and they can be added or removed over time (unlike the owning user).

When using company subscription, there is no direct user owning the account. At all times, there must be at least one organization administrator, however, this privilege can be granted to various people. Users within the company can be added or removed over time. This creates flexibility allowing the organization to always fit into the user limit thanks to working only with the essential people at all times.

Any user can be part of any number of private teams and/or organizations as long as the subscription of the inviting party allows it. They can also act in various roles based on the privileges granted to them.
