Hi Gábor,

Any importer (web or cli) should produce the same results. Existing
projects using TS did not report any issues with the TS importer, but
we might be missing something.

We'll need to take a closer look on why this is happening. Could you
please send an email to support at transifex.com with more information?
Project & Resource name on Transifex, the file you uploaded, the
expected behavior and how we can calculate the correct statistics?
