Hi,

I had a mini task from my client. I was sent the source PPT file and the word count.

I opened the file in Trados 2019. The word count was 1/4 of the client's word count.

Then I opened in Trados 2015 which gave the same word count as client's.

I used default PPT settings in both Trados version.

2019
No Match 168
Repetition 58
Total 226

2015
No Match 499
Repetition 198
100 Match

Fuzzies 56
Total 838


I could not figure out the reason. 2019 does not show the correct word count. I will have to work in 2015, I guess.

Any idea, any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Best regards

Different filter settings? Oct 31, 2018

This is probably due to different filter settings:

SDL Trados Studio 2019
https://bit.ly/2DbmudD

SDL Trados Studio 2015
https://bit.ly/2qnp9YV

Edited to use a URL shortener for the above links as suggested by the moderator.

Tinyurl and other similar tools for replacing monstrous links Oct 31, 2018

Hi Jean,

There are many tools that allow replacing such monstrous URL (that often do not work properly), for example, https://tinyurl.com/

Shortened Oct 31, 2018

Hello Natalie,

Thank you for the heads up.

For some reason, tinyurl.com and goo.gl did not work for these URLs, but bitly.com did, so I have replaced the original links with the shortened version.
