I have a serious problem...

I have quoted a project to be done in Alchemy Catalyst Lite based on the Analysis Report. However, when I have analysed the glossary based on the project with a CAT tool, it seems that the Analysis Report wordcount is just 60% of the total wordcount in the glossary (naturally I've counted only one column)!

Why so much a difference? All strings in the glossary seem to be valid (except a stray internal string, but there are few), also there are not many repetitions...

Hi Jabberwock,

Can you please provide me with your Catalyst build number? This is found in Catalyst under Help > About Catalyst.

Thanks and regards,
Jette

My number Version 7.03 Build 7314. However, I have Lite version - I am not sure if the build the glossary and the analysis were made on is the same... I will check with the client.

Sorry for the late response. May 19, 2010

Hi Jabberwock,

We have most of the analysis issues in Catalyst 7 have been fixed in Catalyst 8.

Do you have to use Catalyst 7 for the project?

Thanks and regards,
Jette

Problem solved! May 19, 2010

Actually, it was not a problem at all - some of the strings were marked as locked (so Catalyst did not count them), but all of them were exported. Skipping them gives correct results.

Sorry for the confusion!
