Hi everyone,

I am translating some files in Trados Studio 2014. Now there is a file that is at 99,6 %, but it seems there is nothing left to translate in the file. But when I do an analysis of the file, it says that there are still a couple of words to translate. Does anybody know how to resolve this problem?

Best regards,

Happens a lot Mar 8, 2016

This seems to happen a lot, I don't know why. If you filter for untranslated/unconfirmed segments and SDL finds none, your translation is finished and there is nothing to worry about.

But being a little OCD-ish at times, this drives me nuts! SDL, please fix it!

the file does not show 100% although it is completed Mar 8, 2016

If the file does not show 100% although it is completed, do as follows:
- File
- Batch Task
- Translation Count
- Finish

I still have Trados 2011, but whichever version you have, you will find it.
Good luck!

Run it in proofreading mode Mar 8, 2016

I get this sometimes and it goes away if I open and close the file in proofreading mode (from Batch tasks), selecting "confirm all segments" on closing.
