I experience significant differences in the analysis of the same file using SDL Trados 2007 Suite versus SDL Trados Studio 2009 (we upgraded recently, and I am curious to find out what the differences btw. the 2 systems are):

2007 vs. 2009
100%: 159 vs. 96
Reps: 70 vs. 123
99-95%: 2 vs. 104
94-85%: 28 vs. 274
84-75%: 31 vs. 608
No matches: 4,301 vs. 3,412
Total: 4,591 vs. 4.617

I used the same TM for the analysis of course (though I obviously had to upgrade it to 2009).

Has anyone experienced the same and is able to give an explanation? I would not mind a little analysis difference, but this one seems too big to ignore - in particular when you want to be precise in your budgetting/quotations and production planning.

kind regards,

Segmentation rules Apr 8, 2010

Hi Peter,

One reason could be that you are using different segmentation rules in each version. This can lead to a difference in the analysis.

You can check the rules by going to File > Setup > Segmentation Rules in Workbench (Trados 2007), and by opening the TM in question in the Translation Memories view in Trados Studio 2009 and looking at Translation Memory Settings > Language Resources > Segmentation Rules.
