Having sent me a job, a regular client asked me to exclude from my final wordcound the words which are not changed in my translation. The text contains a table with many cells which are simply numbers, that's why the request.

Is there a simple way with DVX to calculate the number of `translated' words/segments which have not really changed after the translation? I mean can I calculate the number of words/segments when I simply pressed F5 to fill them. Thank you in advance.

You could do as follows:
Sort in alphabetical order. The segments containing only numbers will be next to each other. Select all the "number" segments and hit F5. With those segments still selected, mark the segments as e.g. Pending. Then you will be able to get a wordcount for only those segments.
