Context penalty in SDLX 2006

Hi all,

I am wondering whether anyone knows how the context penalty works in SDLX 2006? My problem is that my TM contains source segments for which multiple translations exist. Depending on the context, a term needs to be translated (e.g. in a table heading) or should stay untranslated (e.g. a parameter name). I have set the context penalty in SDLX to 1% but when applying the TM SDLX still grabs the next-best translation and displays it as a 100% match (instead of 99%). I am translating FM/MIF files and I am wondering whether this has anything to do with the way the FM tags have been defined in the source document. Can anyone help or point me into the right direction?

Many thanks,

Anne
