I have Passolo Essential 2007.
Now I've got a translation request from customer to provide an offer.
My Passolo shows 214,000 words, 3% translated.
Customer says, that this is correct, but there are roughly 198,000 words repetitions.
The word count is huge and I'm quite afraid to trust the customer blindly.
Does anyone know how to verify that? The statistic function in Passolo is only rudimentary...

Many thanks
Best regards
Jerzy

Solved: do not use Essentials for that Jun 22, 2009

Passolo Essentials, which come with SDL Trados 2007, is even more limited than Passolo Freelance, which can be downloaded from SDL Passolo directly.
And that's what I've done exactly - with Passolo Freelance the word count is shown as detailed, as necessary.

Where did you find it? Jun 23, 2009

Hi Jerzy,

Feeling a trifle overwhelmed by the version mayhem at SDL Trados, can you give me a clue where you downloaded Passolo Freelance?

Thanks in advance,
Peter
