It counts all the internal matches, to check how many strings can be added to TM and used if the strings are translated one by one as listed.

currency optional string Defines the currency for which the whole report is generated. Acceptable values are: '$' (by default), '€', '¥', '£', 'A$', 'C$', 'Fr', 'CN¥', 'kr', 'NZ$', 'MX$', 'S$', 'HK$', 'kr', '₩', '₺', '₽', '₹', 'R$', 'R'.
