Negative percentage number in translation progress (Trados Studio 2009 SP3)
Thread poster: kirameister
Feb 24, 2011


In Trados Studio 2009, you see the translation progress percentages at the right-bottom of the window (when you're in Editor view); Percentage numbers show "Not translated", "Draft", and "Translated".

I've been using Trados Studio 2009 for translating XML files. Recently, I noticed that those percentage numbers sometimes become negative number after I translated every segment in the Editor view (or the "Translated" percentage goes beyond 100.00%).

While it is not a critical issue to my work, I'd still like to have correct numbers. Is there a way to fix this issue?

The version I'm using now is : SDL Trados Studio SP9 - 9.1.2261.3


File Status "In Translation" with 100% progress Mar 15, 2011


I just found a side-effect of this issue. This is presumably because the "Not translated" percentage has not reached 0.00%.

As stated in the previous post, this is not a critical issue. But it can be a bit disturbing when you process dozens of files in a Trados project.

Again, anything I could do to solve this issue?

Locked segments Jun 21, 2016

I'm using Studio 2015 - is it normal that segments locked by the agency don't fom part of the confirmed segments percentage?
