earnTracker is an OS X application for freelancers (graphic designers, translators, etc.) that helps to keep track of your earnings.

Create a project by adding your timed tasks (earnTracker can count the time for you), translation tasks (earnTracker can import the translation analysis data from Trados, complete with fuzzy matches and repetitions count), and any other tasks (units prepared, pages written, miles driven etc.)


earnTracker offers an unique feature for translators: it calculates the weighted word count on the basis of various levels of fuzzy matches and repetitions. This kind of calculation is commonly used by translation agencies to count translators' fees.
You don't even need to enter the fuzzy matches and repetitions yourself: earnTracker can import the project analysis data from Trados (the industry standard translation software suite for Windows).

The project data can be exported as a CSV file (to be opened in Numbers or Excel), or saved as earnTracker project (to be edited later on).

Adding a Timed Task to the current project. You may enter the start and end time manually, or let earnTracker count the time automatically.


When earnTracker is counting the time of a timed task, a red label is displayed on its icon in the Dock.


Adding a Translation Task to the current project. You may enter the number of translated words manually, or drag and drop a Trados project folder.


Adding an Other Task to the current project. You may enter the number of units made, pages written, miles driven, days of work done, etc.


Exporting a project data in CSV format, to be imported to Numbers, Excel or any other spreadsheet application.



Although we believe earnTracker is quite straightforward to use, we have included a full help system, available by choosing Help > earnTracker Help or by clicking any of the Help buttons, conveniently located in various dialog windows.
