Project Editor - comparison of Metrics and Statistics

SOURCE statistics provide information about the number of segments, words, characters, and characters as a percentage in the source text that have been translated in a specific workflow step by a specific user.

TARGET statistics provide information about the number of segments, words, characters, and characters as a percentage in the target text translated in a specific workflow step by a specific user.

Metrics provide information about the number of segments, words, characters and words or characters as a percentage for the translated text and text to translate for the whole project.

It means that Statistics and Metrics indicate the same values for a step performed by a single user, for example:

Example 12. Example
Table 44. 20 source no matching words translated into 25 target words by a user called Linguist 1

Category

Description

Metrics:

20 no matching words

SOURCE statistics:

20 no matching words

TARGET statistics:

25 no matching words



Statistics and Metrics indicate different values when multiple users are involved in a step including Administrators and Project Managers, for example:

Table 45. 8 source no matching words translated into 11 target words by a user called Linguist 1 12 source no matching words translated into 14 target words by a user called Linguist 2

Category

Description

Metrics:

20 no matching words

SOURCE statistics:

Linguist 1: 8 no matching words

Linguist 2: 12 no matching words

TARGET statistics:

Linguist 1: 11 no matching words

Linguist 2: 14 no matching words


Metrics and statistics will also differ if machine translation is used. In this case the original metrics may show segments/words/characters in the no matching category and fuzzy matching rows. After translation, depending on settings, some text may have been machine translated and so now appears in that row.
