Hi!
Can someone explain how to count effective words using analysis text file of Trados?
Usually it shows some percent of fuzzy matches, some percent of no matches.

CAT Count Jul 23, 2012

This is called "equivalent" or "weighted words" and you can use e.g. CAT Count to do the calcualtions for you.

CAT Count is freeware and it enables you to create different analysis breakdown schemes for different clients. Once you load a scheme and an analysis file, it will count the weighted words for you.
