Is there any way to know how many duplicates there are in a TM when performing TM maintenance? I need an estimate on how long it will take me but I do not know where to find statistics about duplicates.

Trados Studio (and maybe other CAT Tools):

-Go to Translation Memories View and open the TM. Then in this window you can see that in "Search Type" is choosen by default "search entire tm". You can change it to "search possible duplicates ones".

-Or use Olifant (a very good software for tm maintenance). (if you need help for this one i can give you... just ask, but it's easy to work with it)

Thank you, Omar. Actually, I know how to find duplicates in Trados Studio, but I need to find out how many of them there are so as to estimate how long it will take. I will try the other software, thanks.
