I received a Studio project from a new client. After I had translated it in my own TEnT, I opened the project in Studio to verify it (F8). Much to my surprise, the verification process took ages, whereas it normally is performed in seconds.

I had to dive into this.

[Commercial break]

After some digging I discovered the verification settings at the project level. The culprit was a comparison of source string length and target string length. Not a category that seems relevant to the translation of a technical manual, me thinks. After deactivating this verification item, F8 behaved the normal way.

So, my problem was not:


How do I activate Verification?


But rather:

How do I deactivate Verification?

(BTW: I think that my client used a generic project template.)

Yes, I understand, Walter. It's just that it took me some time to find out why it took 10 minutes to do a verification of 8000 words. Wrong project configuration.
