Repetitions

When calculating your localization budget, the biggest factors you take into consideration are the number of source words and the cost per word provided by the vendor you use. String and word repetitions need to be also considered allowing vendors to better estimate the time it will take for jobs to be completed, thus provide a competitive quote, at a lower price than the one they would quote if all strings were considered unique.

Transifex offers statistics for untranslated repetitions in a resource/project by generating detailed reports when this information is requested.

Note

Repetitions are updated when one of the following events happens:

1. When a resource is created or updated,

2. When a string is translated

3. When a new target language is added to a project

Resources Progress Report

In order to get repetitions for a specific project on a resource level, you can use the report that can be generated via the resources page. Once you requested the report, a zip file will be generated where 2 CSV files will be included:

1. A CSV file with string and word repetitions per resource. Please note that repetitions depend on the target language, ie. the same resource has different repetitions for each target language, so in this report, each row will contain the following information: Resource, Target Language, repeated wordcount, repeated stringcount.

2. A CSV file as it is described here

Languages Progress Report

In order to get repetitions for a specific project on a language level, you can use the report that can be generated via the languages page. Once you requested the report, a CSV file will be generated containing the information described here. The columns that refer to repetitions are: repeated wordcount, repeated stringcount.

Language Popup

Except for the ability to generate reports and share them with your translators, Transifex exposes information about untranslated repetitions on language pop-ups as well for both strings and words that belong to a specific resource.

Languages Progress Report for All Projects

If you have multiple projects in your organization and want to quickly export statistics for all of them, you can request the report that can be generated via All projects page as described here. The columns that refer to repetitions are: repeated wordcount, repeated stringcount.

Repeated Strings Filter

In order to find all the strings and their repetitions in Transifex Web Editor, apply the filter "Repeated Strings" as follows:

A list with all the strings and their identical instances will be returned:
