The Lionbridge TMS vendor portal is the vendor portal for Lionbridge (https://www.lionbridge.com). There is only one instance of this system running. The TMS is a special portal because it does not contain pricing - it's more a portal for project specifics, and to claim a job. Lionbridge has migrated to LCX, which contains full pricing details as well, but many files still need to be retrieved via TMS, which we support. We recommend that you set up the Auto-approve functionality for Lionbridge's portals, because they mostly work on a first come-first served basis.
There are no requirements to use the Lionbridge TMS portal other than having a valid username and password.
Expected URL format:
The URL is always https://tms.lionbridge.com
To use the Lionbridge TMS vendor portal, you will only need the URL, user name, password that you use on the portal, configuration is performed already when you create the connection.
Issues and how to resolve them:
Lionbridge TMS does not contain prices, so prices should be taken from the customer's price list or price profile. BeLazy populates the analysis with weights and word counts, but not with rates.
In Plunet, in order to make it work, you need to change the rate for each price line.
In XTRF, you need to edit the Task CAT Receivable, and enter the Rate value. The total will be recalculated correctly. You also need to create the Payables.
- New tasks are automatically displayed
- Projects are delivered automatically if you are using a BMS with full automation support
Functionality not supported:
- Files above 3 GB are not handled, files are only kept for one week after the project appears in BeLazy
- Projects rejected in BeLazy are not rejected in the TMS, that needs to be done manually
