Idea Delivered

This idea has now been fully delivered with Trados Studio 2022 SR1. You now have the choice between a progress bar based on words and/or segments. See release notes for more information.

Please go back to Progress Bar focusing on words not segments

  • Finally! Better later than never - absolutely delighted! Slight smile

  • I am delighted to see a great solution implemented to fix the issue I have been complaining about since the launch of Studio 2022. Thank you.

  • I cannot concur more. I cringe everyday that this inconsistency still persist in Trados studio 2022. I need 3 things in my Studio. Consistency, consistency and consistency.

  • I did not really understand the issue until the project I am currently working on. Half of the segments are only made of tags. Once those confirmed, I am left with 6,000+ words to be translated, that is almost 100% of the work to do. Yet, the progress bar shows round 50 % done!

    Happy to see that issue will be soon addressed. Thank you.

  • Paul, you have a bunch of customers in this very thread complaining about a particular issue, and reasoning it quite well. Pretending that the problem does not exist, or basically saying that we as freelancers are too small to influence the decisions on the UI, is well, not great.

    Just like that blog post, which has this general idea: go dig deep in the radio menu and you will find your darn speed in kilometres per hourm, but we'll keep the speedometer as is.

    By the way, MemoQ is using progress bar based on words (and ignores locked segments for that) by default, just like any other usable CAT tool I know. And, it offers the choice of Segments, Words or Characters.
