I write out the numbers from one to ten in my translation but Studio 2015 (as have the previous ones) gives me a number recognition error. Is there a setting somewhere to alter this?

Turning off the number check Jul 8, 2015

I too find that Studio at times is over eager when verifying. For instance, if there is a tag in front of a period, Studio complains that there is a space in front of the period, which there of course is not. I have not found any way to turn off this nuiscance without turning off the space check totally, though I think it is useful, since it at times does stop at places where there are unwanted spaces.

In the same way I suspect that Studio only checks that the numbers in source are also included in target, but is at the moment not programmed to check if the numbers are written out with letters in target. So I suspect you just have to live with it if you don't want to turn off the number check totally.

Having a setting where the Verify function checks for numbers in source and spelled with letters in target would probably be too big a programming task, since it would have to take in account all the different languages that Studio could be used to, which is quite substantial.

You're probably right Roy. Jul 8, 2015

I don't want to turn off the number verifier as it is such an important quality check feature but this is something that I find annoying especially as SDL are advertising using the slogan:Your studio: your way.

Maybe turn off the ouot of the box number verifier if it's causing your problems... it's only a computer and computers don't know everything!

You can use the custom QA checks to check exactly what you want, your way. Or maybe try the Number verifier from the OpenExchange which is a pretty good alternative and not so fussy... many people prefer this anyway.

Either way, this is all just making use of the features and tools that Studio provide... your way.
