    4. 5.4.
      A document pages fee gives the right to process a certain number of documents up to a chosen limit of pages. To process a document, a user has to buy at least a corresponding number of pages (master pages are not counted unless their number is greater than the number of regular pages of the document). The user only pays once for pages of every document and has the right to make an unlimited number of changes and exports of the translated file.

    Other terms
    1. 6.1.
      Upgrades. Medialab has the right to upgrade the current version of Mediatrad, without causing any lost of documents or translated data.
    2. 6.2.
      Fonts. Mediatrad handles fonts available with InDesign CS5.5. Fonts can be also attached with the uploaded document (packages). Fonts not supplied with document and not available with CS5.5 InDesign Server will be substituted, to enable the correct display of Western and Eastern Europe languages. Warning: the font substitution can cause layout modification in the document.
    3. 6.3.
      Dictionaries. Mediatrad does not include any dictionary. The user can upload their own dictionaries in csv or tmx format. All uploaded dictionaries and translations entered during the work with Mediatrad (Translation Memory) are the property of user/company who entered them and all necessary rights are granted to Medialab to store, display and process them for the purpose of Mediatrad application. All entered translations can be reused in future work on current document (next pages) or other documents.
    4. 6.4.
      Important: A translated document is NOT READY TO PRINT. After translation every document need to be slightly retouched by a DTP specialist. The target preview is supplied only for indicative purposes and should not be considered as a final printed version of the document. Texts in different languages usually have different length. In general, source documents are in English which is very consistent and almost all translations will be longer than the original. It is therefore normal, that the target preview will not be 100% correct. Usually text frames are too small to contain the new text and it can lead to overlapping texts, cut or missing text, or to some displacements in the page layout. That is why translators are kindly requested to concentrate their efforts on the translation text and not to attach too much importance to the preview, which is generated after saving each page.
