Reports

 

Reports can be generated to provide an overview of the most important details of a project.  The format of the report is an HTML page so it can be saved, printed, or taken away for future use.

 

To generate a report for the current project, use the Project -> Report menu commands.  The Report page (Figure 1) will appear in the Extended View bar displaying the name of the project as well as the project's source and target languages.  The name and location of the report is automatically entered in the File name field, but it can also be edited manually or browsed for using the Select file button.  The automatic entry created by RC-WinTrans leads to a subfile named "Report" that is placed in the file where the project organization file is located.  The name of the report is made up of the word "Report" plus the date of the report's creation plus the abbreviation for the project's target language (see Figure 1).

 

Click on the Create report button to generate the report.

The RC-WinTrans localization report will automatically be called up and displayed in a separate browser window.  At the top of the report you will see the name of the project and its source and target languages, plus the date and time that the report was generated.  This information is followed by a list of the source files contained in the project.

 

The next section of the report shows a table providing information on the project's translation status. The table clearly arranges the most important details about the words and translation units contained in the project, such as the total number of these, how many have already been translated, and how many have a changed source text.

The translation status information table is supplemented by two pie charts which provide a visual representation of the translation status information.  The first pie chart shows the percentage of translated, non-translated, and changed items in the current project.  Note that "translated" simply means that an entry exists in the target text.  Below the first pie chart is a list of the types of state flags contained in the project and the total number of each.  The pie chart below the list offers a visual representation of these state flags and, accordingly, the various states of the items.  For example, the pie chart at the bottom of Figure 3 shows that 22% of the items have had their state flags set to "translated, "61% to "new," and 17% have no state flags at all.  For a more detailed discussion of states and state flags see the help topic entitled "State Flags."

 

NOTE:  The SVG Viewer from Adobe is required to display the pie chart graphics.

The RC-WinTrans HTML report also contains lists of all the re-check markers and tasks contained in the project.  The names and locations of these items are provided so that they can easily be found in the project.
