Hi there,

I have a folder with a bunch of files to be translated, however some of them back been recognized as "References", therefore the wordcount is not correct for the whole project.

During project creation, I tried to change the type into "Translatable" from "Change file usage", but I am getting this message:

The file usage of 1 of the 1 selected files was not changes to translatable, because no matching file type could be found. You have to add a suitable file via Project Settings.

I am lost.

I just want Trados to count the "Reference" as "words to be translated" and show in the Report Analysis so I can see the total word count, inclusing Translatable, Localizable AND Reference.

How do I do that?
