How to have an overview of your project

In this section you will learn how to keep an overview of your project. You may want to take a look at the Statistics, change the status of your segments in a batch mode or mark down problems encountered during your work or even filter out the segments that you want to review or where you have comments left.


We will be covering these topics (you can either scroll or jump directly to each chapter):

Work Statistics 

You will find the statistics icon on the top left corner of the Editor working space.

Simple view

A general view of the statistics of your job will be directly displayed after clicking on the icon above:

Statistics (summary - simple view)

Statistics (Labels - simple view)

Detailed view of each information module

Translation progressReal time information about the document progress. Information about the types of translation is also provided here (machine translation, pre-translation, edited by user)
QA issuesNumber of QA issues reported for the document in the job
BookmarksNumber of bookmarks in the job. Can be grey, blue or red
StatusStatus of the segment: success (green), error (red) or none (grey)
WorkersPeople who have been assigned to this job
Last modificationsPerformed during any phase of the project
Full statistics reportWith detailed data (segment view/word counts)

Please note

Each element in this window is clickable, allowing you to apply simple filters.

You can also apply complex filters (combining more than one category) by means of the searchbar, located on top.

Full report

For a full report of the statistics, containing all the information retrieved from the Project Resources and the word counts, you will need to access the report available at the bottom of the window:

The Actions menu 

In the quick access bar, the icon actions features a dropdown list of of automated options that will allow you to apply changes to your working segments. This actions can be run in batch mode, affecting several segments or running several actions at a time.


Working segments relate to different scenarios. They can refer to:

-The active segment: segment you are currently editing.

-The result of a filter: segments currently displayed. To know the scope of your filter, check the number of elements that are affected by your search query on the bottom right corner of the Editor.

-Your full document: if no filters are applied, then the action triggered will affect all the segments of your document.

Translate from MemoryTranslate text from specific Translation Memory (attached to the project)
Clear all segment informationDelete all information of a segment (translation, comments...)

Create custom error messageType a message to be display by certain errors
Quick QA CheckRun a quick QA Check for the selected source and target languages
Set Context

Sentiment Analysis

Once you select and configure the action(s) you want to perfom, the system will ask you to confirm the changes and also give you the possibility to configure some advanced options to track the changes you will apply.

The power search bar 

More than a regular search bar  , the power search bar is located at the center of your screen, just above the working space of the editor. 

This feature will enable you to perform different types of searches:

Simple search: look up in your document for some words/text strings, like in the search and replace tool.

Regular search: refine your simple search by giving some more restrictions (case specific, phrase match, wildcards or regular expressions).

Advanced search: narrow down your results by using and combining search operators. These are all the data categories that you can find in the CAT tool.  Some of them are contained in the statistics view, but many others come from the different widgets and smart features available in the system. 

Using search operators to filter segments


It is also possible to select more than one element of each filter category and also combine filters. The system will also detect which are the fields that you use the most and push them to the top of the list, so that you can save time each time you access the search feature.

Filters available are listed below.
