Word count is not correct in Studio 2011
Thread poster: xxxtrhanslator

I've translated a batch of SDLXLIFF files outside of Studio 2011. When I place these files back in the package and open it in Studio, the word count isn't correct.

However, when I open the original package in Studio and then copy the translated files to the correct target language folder, the word count is correct.

How come?

Word count batch task? Jan 28, 2013

Studio has a batch task labeled Word count. Maybe you need to run it in order to have an updated count?

Word count batch task doesn't solve it Jan 28, 2013

Thanks for the suggestion, Dominique, I had already tried that one, but it doesn't solve the issue. I think Studio 2011 has the word count values stored somewhere. In the project? Elsewhere? I have been editing the .proj file but thus far with no result.

BTW: I realise that my question goes beyond what Support is supposed to answer, so I don't expect an answer from Paul. Though it would be kind, of course .
