Dear Colleagues!
I'm working with Trados Studio 2009.
Now I need to translate an Excel file with limited character length.
Can I set a limit for the translation?
And how can I see the lenght of characters written in my translation field. I heard, in the bar below but this doesn’t work in my Studioicon_frown.gif
Thank you in advance for your support.
Kind regards
Barbara

QA Checker 3.0 Nov 29, 2015

I know this is an old post, but shame no one answered it. Since this can always help when searching online, here is my suggestion:

In SDL Trados Studio 2009

Tools -> Verification -> QA Checker 3.0 -> Length Verification

It is important though to close Trados and reopen it again in order for the character limits to work.

This feature has been introduced in 2011 or maybe 2014, if I remember well.
If you upgrade, you will be able to see the current cursor position in the status bar.
