Hello Dear Colleagues
I have a website translation project now; Trados report shows 31000 words but shows about 11000 words since there are many tags like there:

Your Name (required)

within the text which should not be translated
the client would pay only for the 11000 words and the problem is here as an example: the page contact-us has just 27 words but Trados shows it with 557 words and 158 segments; what can I do to insert all segments having tags by one click / settings into target text and just translate and prove text segments please?

My advice Oct 27, 2015

When the number of tags is great, inserting them one by one will lead to problems of missing/misplaced tags.

What I do it as follows: copy source to target (can do it in batch) and translate the target segments respecting the tags. You might still have to move them around a tiny bit (depending on the language pair), but this is the "safest" option I've found in Trados (provided we can regard Trados as safe in the first place).
