The Create progress report dialog allows you to create a new report that shows the progress of the project. Reports are always saved automatically when you create them and can be retrieved later.

How to begin

You can invoke this dialog by clicking Create new report now under the Progress section on the Reports tab of the Overview pane of Project home.


This dialog consists of two sections:

Report options section:

Tag weight (words and/or characters): Enter a weight that should be added to the word/character count based on the tag statistics. Tags are counted anyway, but if you enter a number here, the word or character count will be increased by that number for each and every tag. Enter 0 for excluding tags from the word count.

Word counts section:

memoQ: Check this check box to display memoQ word counts.

Note: In memoQ, similarly to Microsoft® Excel®, every string or character that is between whitespaces is counted as a word. Therefore in memoQ mode you always count numbers as a single word and hyphenated words like in-bound are also considered to be a single word.

TRADOS 2007-like: Check this check box to display Trados 2007-like word counts. Legacy SDL Trados® Translator's Workbench versions handle word counts differently.

Note: In old Trados versions (before SDL Trados Studio), numbers are only counted as words when they are within a segment, and a number of other rules apply. In Trados®, segmentation is a factor in word count, i.e. you can get a different word count if the same text appears in one or two lines. Trados® segmentation rules are not public, therefore there is usually a small discrepancy between the word counts of Trados® and Trados-mode memoQ. In most of the cases, this discrepancy does not exceed 1.5%. We suggest that you only use Trados 2007-like word counts if your client explicitly requires you to do so.

Comment for report section:

Optional comment for report: Enter a comment that describes the reason why you created the report. It will be displayed in the report and can give you information.


Click OK to generate the report. Click Cancel to close the dialog box without generating the report.

The generated progress report contains all segment types, and the progress for each user assigned to the project:

For each segment status, memoQ lists the number of segments, source words, and source characters. Progress bars show how translation is advancing.

Click the [hide] link to hide the report. The Hide link turns into the Show link. Click the [show] link to show the progress report again. Click the [export] link to export the report as CSV. Click the [prepare quote] link to prepare a quote in Language Terminal based on this progress report. You need to be signed in to Language Terminal to do so. Click the [delete] link to delete a progress report.

You can always click the Create new report now to create a new progress report based on the project's progress. You can display several progress reports and see the progress in the project.
