When you talk about statistics, in most cases you talk about money. Statistics is the way to quantify the productivity enhancement of using memoQ. The better you can estimate your cost or time requirements for a given job, the more competitive you can be on the market. memoQ includes enhanced statistics – the ability to set different options enables you to estimate your human resource costs more precisely, and thus have a bigger area of freedom in pricing your services than the users of competitive products.
CAT tools use statistical language processing to calculate the similarity of two segments. It is a generally accepted principle that in most cases the statistically similar segments are also similar in meaning, but this cannot be guaranteed using state-of-the-art methods. As statistics is based on the very core of a CAT tool, data in the statistical analysis in different CAT tools may vary slightly.
