Any idea why the difference between files analysed with either CAT tool? I have a huge difference in the analysis with both tools in a very large project, and when comparing both logs I see that the Trados Studio log includes many words as "internal repetitions" which are evidently counted as new words with Trados 8. Any idea on which one is more accurate? Thanks in advance!!

One is not more accurate than the other... Aug 24, 2013

... they are just counting and reporting slightly differently. You can find an article here that might be helpful for you : http://wp.me/p2xDjK-cK

Internal repetitions are different... this is an optional report in the analysis settings that tries to see what leverage you would get from translating the files. So something that isn't in your TM yet, but once you translate a little will start to provide matches elsewhere.

Regards

Paul
