Hello,

I use SDL trados 7.5 and windows XP
Big problem for me : I have a lot of XML files to be translated but no INI file. I tried to create one using "tag settings" . Dony know exactly if I did it right. Anyway, I need to provide the client with the word count. BUT Trados does count HTML tags in the total which means I have a total of words not corresponding to the reality. Too many words... The customer won't agree with that. Is there any way I can count only the text to be translated?

Many thanks t you all for your help

Isabelle

This is what I just did, and got what you're asking for. Oct 21, 2006

Start Workbench with any TM on it.

Click "Tools"

Click "Analyze"

Click "Options" (within the "Anylizing files" window)

Click on "TM Options"

Click on the "DTD configuration" button

Click on the "DemoDTD" and then click on the "Predetermined" button.

Finally, put your XLM files on the Analyze window through the Add button...

And, Voilà! There you have your word count.

Hope this helps.

Okapi Framework Oct 21, 2006

Although I suppose it must be possible to do this in Trados, an easy way out is to use the free Okapi Framework to extract the translatable text to a simple .txt file and then perform the word count using your preferred method.

You'll need to define a DTD or schema file, but I assume you already have one provided by the client (or use the standard W3C ones).
