During the project, I have many duplicate translation for the source sentence, which is exactly same with itself. For example, source sentence: "beijing flight reservation", target sentence "beijing flight reservation". There are about 100 such cases. Is there any way to delete them easily?

I tried.Some sentences are deleted automatically. However, there are still other sentences which could not be deleted.

delete duplicates option works great Jul 31, 2007

But even an extra space makes difference.

So first "find sets of duplicate source sentences with identical translations" also check "delete redundant sentences in each set of duplicates".

And then "find sets of duplicate source sentences with different translations"

You will observe that sometimes we mistakenly add an extra space at the end of the segment

could not delete "duplicate source sentences with different translation" Jul 31, 2007

Hi Selcuk,
I followed the steps as you describe. When "duplicate source sentences with different translation" is selected,about 70 sentences are found. However, there's no option to delete them automatically. Do I have to delete them one by one?

In the case of duplicate source sentences with different translations, you have to delete them manually.
