After completing a translation in 2009, the summary on the lower bar looks like this:

Translated words: 1105 (100.45%
Untranslated words: -5 (-0.45%)

In the Files view "In Revision" appears instead of "In Translation", next to the file name.
I have reinstalled Windows and Trados but the error remains.

However, if I transfer the whole Trados project to my other PC and open it there, everything is normal: no negative figures and no percentages with decimal fractions.
This is the only solution I have found until now.

This error is not fatal but annoys me.

If some of you has experienced similar error and found solution, please let me know.

Many thanks in advance.

Also in 2014..! Jul 6, 2015

I have noticed this occuring in Studio 2014 too..

Occasionally I have seen that some words remain "untranslated" on the counter even though each of the segments have been confirmed.

Right click on the file, go to batch tasks and run Translation Count. That should solve it. I've had this happen a couple of times before and this has solved it - it doesn't seem to be too much of a major problem in the first place.
