Dear colleagues

I am trying to fine-tune my QA settings in Trados Studio 2011 (Freelance, 10.2.3001.0), and have read that under the verification tools there should three items:

- Document Verifier

- QA checker

- Terminology verifier.

This is reflected in the online help. However for some reason I have only the last two items.

Two questions:

1. anyone have any idea why this would be (I am sure I just ran the standard install)

2. Is it worth worrying about? I can't quite tell what it would do that the QA checker doesn't do.

Look forward to any enlightenment.

Best wishes

Judith Pattinson

I think that "document verifier" refers to verifying your translation when you click F8. This will run the QA checker and Terminology verifier that you have customised under tools>options>verification. You'll get a list of error messages as a result of running "Verify" (missing tags, changed tag order, double spaces, incorrect term use, etc.).

So Verification would be the umbrella term that covers
- QA checker
- Terminology verifier

I've just check in the online help and agree that this isn't very clear, but I can't think of any other sort of "Document verifier" right now.
