A Trados question pertaining to multiple files Trados projects.

When I run an analysis of a project consisting of several documents, I get a detailed analysis of all the documents based on percentages of match in my existing TM at the time.
Say I finish translating the first document file, with the expected expansion of the TM, and start with the second document file, which happens to have lots of similarities with the first. However when I rerun the analysis of the entire project (all files combined ) there are no changes in the analysis results for that second file, where there should have been. It's only if I create a new project with only that second file in it, then run the analysis again for that project, that I get an analysis reflecting all the duplications/similarities

Any indication of how to properly deal with this?

As I see it there are two ways of doing this:

1. Start the project by only loading the first file which you translate. Then you load the second file into the same project. This file should then benefit from the expanded TM and show the corresponding fuzzies.


2. Make a copy of the second file with another name. Load this file into the same project, but specify "analysis only". This should then give you the analysis figures for the 2nd file based on the updated TM.

Don't forget that you have to change the files section to your source language to add files to a project. You then change it back to the target language to see the results of the analysis.

It's a bit of a work around, but the analysis is only normally done at the start of a project, (for your quote, etc.).

Thanks - that's what I did. Just thought that would have been automatic.
