Hi all,

Fore some time I've been getting very strange reports when doing pre-translations of documents. Whatever the actual word count is, e.g. 689 words, the WF translation report shows several thousands, like this:

SOURCE segments words char. %
100% 3 3 17 0%
95%-99% 0 8807 5735 100%
85%-94% 0 0 0 0%
75%-84% 0 0 0 0%
00%-74% 29 28 1646 0%
Total 32 8838 7398
0 tags

TARGET segments words char. %
Total 3 3 16

When I run the analyze tool reports are accurate. But in most cases a pre-translation report is just fine for me and it saves time as pre-translating and generating a report is triggered with one click.

I'm using Wordfast Classic 6.03t. What can possibly be wrong with the settings?
