I hope someone can shed some light on this for me, because hard as I've been trying I can't figure out a way to do this in Trados Studio 2011.

Basically, I need an easy way to count only the new words I've translated. This is really important because I have a rather large project with a lot of repetitions, and I want to be sure that I'm meeting my daily quota. I need to translate about 2000 new words a day to get the project finished on time, but all the word counts seem to be including the repetitions. How can I be sure that if the word count states 2000, half of those aren't repetitions and therefore don't count towards my quota...?

Looking forward to any responses!

You can run an analysis to compare the no match count every day. It is not a very precise method, but it should give you an idea how far you have gone.
