Hello all,

is is possible to run the Analyze option in Workbench on bilingual files, focusing only on the source text (ie. not display results for the target language)? I do not have the original source files, as I am proofreading an already existing translation (the bilingual files). I should also mention that it concerns a large number of files, in case that is relevant. Many thanks.

,,, what's important (afaik) is the TM behind the scene. If I wanted the counts, based just on the pure, unadulterated source, I took an empty TM.

Create a new TM, check (go through) the segments one by one with the Set/Close Next Open/Get function (as you were translating them), and when you wish to know the remaining wordcount, simply run the analysis as ususally. 100% matches will constitute all the reviewed segments, and the rest wordcount will indicate the remaining amount to be reviewed.
