Other Revenue.   Other revenue consists of discrete professional services, translation services and reimbursable out-of-pocket expenses. Discrete professional services, when sold with subscription and


support offerings, are accounted for separately since these services have value to the customer on a stand-alone basis and there is objective and reliable evidence of fair value of the delivered elements. Our arrangements do not contain general rights of return. Additionally, when professional services are sold with other elements, the consideration from the revenue arrangement is allocated among the separate elements based upon the relative fair value. Revenues from professional services are recognized as the services are rendered.

In determining whether revenues from professional services can be accounted for separately from subscription revenue, we consider the following factors for each agreement: availability of professional services from other vendors, whether objective and reliable evidence of the fair value exists of the undelivered elements, the nature and the timing of when the agreement was signed in comparison to the subscription agreement start date and the contractual dependence of the subscription service on the customer’s satisfaction with the other services. If the professional service does not qualify for separate accounting, we recognize the revenue ratably over the remaining term of the subscription contract. In these situations we defer the direct and incremental costs of the professional service over the same period as the revenue is recognized.

We record reimbursable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in accordance with EITF issue 01-14, Income Statement Characterization of Reimbursements Received for “Out-of-Pocket” Expenses Incurred, which requires that reimbursements received for out-of-pocket expenses be classified as revenue and not as cost reductions. Before the December 15, 2001 effective date of EITF Issue 01-14, out-of-pocket reimbursements from clients were netted with the applicable costs. These items primarily include travel, meals and certain telecommunication costs. For the years ended December 31, 2004, 2005, and 2006, reimbursed expenses totaled $1.3 million, $1.4 million, and $1.9 million, respectively.
