Hi,

I have a Word file with many updates done on the target language. The client wants to calculate the word count of the updates in the target language and wants these to be back translated in the source file. Can anyone advise how to calculate the word count of these updates in Trados 2014.

Thank you so much for your help.

Best regards,
Noha

Filter the tracked changes? Apr 7, 2016

Hi Noha,
I forgot that the Retrofit function was introduced in Studio 2015.
This will not work in 2014.

If you can get the updates to show as Review tracked changes in Studio, you can filter them and get the word count.


HTH,
Sandra

Hi Sandra,

Thank you so much for your kind help.

Unfortunately, the Retrofit function is not in Studio 2014.

Is there any other way to have the word count in Trados 2014 or any other free online tool?

Best regards,
Noha

Use Word Apr 11, 2016

Hi Noah,

You could use the compare files function in Word. The comparison can be saved as a separate document with tracked changes.

Hi SDL_Roman and Ben,

Thank you so much for your kind help. It was really so instructive.

I've already used the compare function in Word and got my comparison file with tracked changes as Ben suggested. My question to SDL_Roman is: Would the goAnalyse suggested app be able to calculate the word count of updates, even if I didn't have a TM for the project?

Many thanks for your kind help.

Noha

goAnalyze functions Apr 12, 2016

Hi Noha,

goAnalyze is an SDLTrados Studio 2015/2014/2011/2009 add-on which allows you to perform an analysis of several or even zipped files without having to open them in Trados Studio. Optionally, you can store the created project, too, so goAnalyze can also be used to jumpstart project creation. This even works when you have different source files for each target language!
Before running the first analysis, you create profiles in the user interface of goAnalyze. These profiles consist of the language combination, the translation memories to be used plus optional analysis settings and even costing figures.

Hope It Helps,

Kind Regards,

SDL_Roman
