G'day everyone

A client sent me a partially translated TTX file which I translated. I want to make sure that I did not miss any text that still needs to be translated. What is the simplest way of checking whether there is any untranslated (i.e. unsegmented) text in the file?

Thanks
Samuel

Just an analysis May 15, 2012

Hi Murray,



Just do an analysis

Go to workbench, press Tools>Analyse...

A new window appears, press Add to add your translated files, then press Analyse


Just in case a messages error pops up, try to delete the log file path and leave it empty




Regards

My way May 15, 2012

Run an analysis and if all segments are 100% match = all ttx translated.

When I run an analysis (on an empty TM), I get this:
Repetitions: 310
No match: 1620
and all others are zero.

What about if I do both a clean up and an analysis... would it be safe to assume that if the numbers are the same, then everything is translated?

Analysis and spellcheck May 15, 2012

Hi Samuel,

Just run an analysis to see if all segments are displayed either in %100 matches or in repetitions.

If you want to make sure that you didn't miss any word, simply run a spellcheck.

Yiğit

Press F8 under TE May 15, 2012

Try one of the following ways:
1. Open the .ttx file in TE and press F8, the QA Checker is launched (shortest way).
2. Perform a quality check with SDLX (which is able to process .ttx files).
3. My favorite: open the .ttx file in Xbench and check ongoing translation (the best way).
You don’t need a TM (perhaps only for the connection between WB and TE)
