Hi all,

I am currently evaluating MemoQ 2014 Pro and there is one feature I personally find missing.

Is there a way to display the actual number of words in the bottom row where the program display the project progress?
Other words, assuming I am working on a single document project, to get the program display "100/1000" instead of "P:10%, D:10%")? Meaning I translated 100 words in a 1000 words document?

I personally find this %TranslatedWords/%TotalWords approach much more useful when for example I have a project where I need to translate certain number of words per day. When / if I see something like "100/1000" it quickly shows me exactly what I need and if I want more detailed analysis I can alway run the statistics.

Right now the only way to see the number of words is to run the statistics (at least the only way I know).

Is there something in the settings that will allow me to display the actual number of the translated words in that bottom status bar?

As far as I know, there is no wat to do it. I think it would be indeed a good idea, but only if you can configure it and hide it as well. Some times it can be very stressful to see how slow you are going...

Here's how to do it Dec 3, 2014

Hi Michael,

I was searching how to do it as well and I found your topic. I accidentally found out and I would like to share with you (even though it has been some time since you've asked):

- Go to "Project home" and select the file you are translating
- Right-click the file and select "Statistics"
- Check the case "Show counts" and then "Status report"

You can have the number of segments/words/characters you have translated so far ("Translator confirmed").

I hope it helped!
