Dear all!

Just a quick question about Trados stats.
When you analyse a new text, the statistics report generated following the
text analysis contains 'repetitions' and '100% match' categories.
Could you explain the difference between them?

Thank you very much!

[Once again], a match is a match - present in the TM. A repetition is not a match (not present in the TM), just repeating text fragment. Repetitions become 100% matches being translated just once.

Hi, Andrey,

Look in the TRADOS help for "repetition" and you will find an explanation of the differences.

If there is anything you don't understand from the help, feel free to ask.

Unfortunately, Trados Help is not correct Mar 25, 2008

Trados Help will give you the definition of repetition saying "The first occurrence of a segment with no match in translation memory is interpreted as a no match; the second occurrence of the same segment is counted as a repetition."

The correct phrase should be "The first occurrence of a segment with no 100% match in translation memory is interpreted as a no match; the second occurrence of the same segment is counted as a repetition."

Tested and confirmed.

Hi, Wojciech,

I am not sure I understand.

According to the help definition, any segment with no match (i.e. no 100% match and no fuzzy match) is interpreted as no match the first time and as repetition the second time. 100% matches or fuzzy matches are not counted as repetitions as far as I know (but I haven't double checked recently).

According to your corrected definition, a segment which is a fuzzy match (i.e. a 95% match) is counted as a no match the first time and as a repetition the second time. Is this what you mean?

Daniel
