A progress report is an overview how much of a project is done. It gives you a breakdown by segment status.

In a multilingual project, you can run a progress report for all target languages or a single target language.

Overview only: The progress report doesn't group the information by document or by translator.

How to get here

Open a local project. In Project home, choose Overview. Click the Reports tab. Under Progress report, click Create new report now.

In online projects: Open an online project. In the memoQ online project window, choose Reports. Under Progress report, click Create new report now.

If you have several target languages: Before clicking Create report now: At the top right, choose All languages to run the report for all target languages. Choose one language to run the report for that target language only.


What can you do?

Work with a character count rather than a word count

Fine-tune the count if the documents contain a lot of tags: Use tag weights

Write a description for each progress report

Don't use Trados 2007-like word counts: Normally, memoQ counts words like Microsoft Word does. In the past, when Trados 2007 or earlier (Trados Translator's Workbench) used to be a dominant translation tool, it was important that memoQ could produce similar word counts - so that translation companies could compare them. This is no longer the case. Use the Trados 2007-like word counts only if your client still works with an early Trados version, and they insist on using it.

When you finish
