Hello all

I've never really analysed a file before and I'm wondering how to read the report.

Here's what i've got (i've removed the columns reporting the # of words and characters for simplicity):

Repetitions 1241 53%
100% 478 39%
95%-99% 8 1%
85%-94% 32 2%
75%-84% 26 3%
_0%-74% 32 1%
Total 1827

Now, what bugs me is the 1241.... How many segments are a 100% match? If I act logically there are only 478, but... what are the 1241? They fit no where...

Thanks so much for your help with this!!!!

Hi Cynthia,

Bear in mind that the 100% refers to segments with a 100% match against the TM you used for the analysis, whilst repetitions are segments repeated within the document itself, but which don't have a match in the current TM.

Hope this helps to clarify things.
