Penalties Dec 19, 2008

I'm assuming that you're referring to the penalties tab available int he Translation emory options on the workbench.

When analysing a segment against a tranlation memory, the fuzzy match percenatge is calcualted based on a scoring of differences between what is stored in the TM, and what is in the new source document. The Penalties tab allows you as a user to customise these settings, and where required, ignore specific differences in situations where this may be applicable.

However, I've yet to encouneter a situation where this should be applied, and it is usually reccomended to leave these as the defualt settings, in order to minimise discrepencies in analysis between two different installations of the software.

Hope This Helps.
