I'm very used to analyzing files in Trados, where doing so requires only a couple of clicks.

Now in Studio, what would be the easiest way of analyzing files and seeing the results of the analysis without creating a project? The only time I've successfully analyzed a file in Studio I found it to be a convoluted process, but I'm wondering if there's a better way.

Not so quick but possible Nov 19, 2009

Sorry in advance about my not so good Englishicon_wink.gif

1. Open document and save it as sdlxliff
2. Go to Files View
3. Right-click on the name of the file: Batch Tasks - > Analyze Files
4. Batch Processing window will appear. You need to select Analyze Files and click Next. At the left of the next screen (Settings) select Analyze Files. After that at the right you will see Frequent Segments and Unknown Segments (you can select the needed settings). Click Finish.
5. After completing the task click Close and see Analysis Statistics bookmark at the bottom of the screen (Files View) or open Reports View and see Analyze File.

Let me know about the resultsicon_biggrin.gif

analyze files in studio Nov 19, 2009

What I do is open the doc, save the bilingual file and then go to projects where it will have been created. Right click on the project name and then batch tasks > analyze.
It's not too many clicks away, and I realise that Studio needs to know which TM I'm going to be working with before it can analyse the doc, which is why you have to open it and save it first.

Maybe someone has a better way of doing it?

Edit: Just seen that Irene does it the same way!

Huge projects Nov 19, 2009

Just something to keep in mind on huge projects:

Half-way through a 175,000-word project, an analysis is taking two hours. (Normal-sized projects take up to a few minutes.)

Hopefully SDL will improve this Nov 19, 2009

Thank you, that's the procedure I've been following. I just wish there was a faster way. I find myself analyzing files in Workbench even if I'm going to work with them in Studio, it's just more convenient.

I'll submit an idea to SDL asking them to add a simpler Analyze function and will let you know here so you can vote for it if it makes sense for you too.
