Hello,

I have three questions:
1. The customer provided me with a wod count log from SDL. I have trouble to read it. Where can I find the total amount of words in the file? Is it in the totals line?

File Statistics:
Segments TM Words AP Words Total Percentage Totals

What does AP words mean?

2. Does SDL count text from MS office drawing objects? When I clicked onto the embedded image, it displayed "edit text" and then prompts me to convert to an MS Off. drawing object to be able to edit the text.

3. SDL word count seems to differ from Practicount. Which one is more reliable?

Thanks a lot!

AP = auto-propagated words. In other words, repetitions or fuzzy matches that don't come from the TM but from within the file itself.

Total counts are in the "Totals" line, yes

No idea about your other questions, though.

Regards,
Stefan
