Dear all,

a question about Trados Studio 2009: is there a way to view the number of characters of each segment?
I have to translate a text in which the target has to have exactly the same length as the source. In the QA checker you can only set a predefined length for all segments, but this is not what I need... is there a solution for my problem?

Many thanks!

Lorenza

Studio 2011 has this feature May 10, 2012

At the bottom of the side-by-side translation screen in Studio 2011, along with the total number of words untranslated, draft and translated there is also the character count. But I don't believe this was present in 2009.

I've found a way! May 11, 2012

Thank you for your answers!

Finally I've found the function I was looking for: in

Project > project settings > Verification >Segment Verification: check for target segments which are: longer by 0%, based on
characters

With this setting I receive a warning message if the length of the target segment exceeds the source. And this was exactly what I needed!
