Hello all!

I have come across a problem and I hope someone will be able to help me.

I am using Trados 2009 (the starter version) and recently I have translated excel files.

My question is, how do I complete a source text word count that includes the repetitions.

I have used the analysis statics tool, but the results come as as n/a. The status of the file is "complete" rather than "in progress".

Thank you for your help in advance.

Emma

You need to do the analysis of the source text before starting the translation.

Still no luck with repetitions in Trados 2009 Mar 16, 2011

Thank you for your reply Helene.

I have analysed the source text as though it were a new translation and I have the same result, the repetition results are returned as n/a.

Also has anyone had any problems with accuracy using the word count? I pasted the source document to word (crude but effective) and there was a difference of 2000 words between that of trados and that in word.

Thanks!

Emma
