Reports in Transifex show you how many words were translated, by whom, and the Translation Memory leverage used. It's useful for seeing who your most active translators are, or figuring out how much you should pay your translators.
Here's a look at how Reports work:
Click the Reports tab in the main navigation.
Use the filters at the top to filter the data by project, language, or date. For instance, it's easy to find out who worked on Chinese translations for your iOS Transifex project during April.
To sort data in a column, click on the bar above that column. Click once to sort by ascending order. Click it again to sort by descending order.
To download a copy of your report as a CSV file, click the Download CSV button in the header.
Understanding new words and edit words
The two main metrics in Reports are New Words and Edit Words. Here's what each means:
- New Words – New words are the number of newly translated words. Only the first translation for a string is counted in new words. This means each source string only appears in the new words count once.
- Edit Words – Edit words are changes made to an existing translation. It's important to note that Edit words are not reviewed words.
In both cases, only translations are counted. That is, Reports only take in account the work done when someone clicks Save and not Review.
And for both metrics, the count is based on the number of words in the source string. As an example, if you have the source string "Hello world" and it was translated to "Hello," the new word count would be 2, not 1.
Translation Memory Leverage
Next to the new word count in the report, there are bar charts showing the TM leverage for the new words translated. With it, you can see how much a translator was able to rely on TM for the new words they translated.
