I have a text from a company that we have done a translation before in a similar field. I have created a TM for the translation that we have previously done and I would like to analyse the new document regarding repetitions within the text itself and analogies within the TM (of the previous text) and the new text. How exactly is that done? I have run an analysis with both texts in the source language being open in Ms-word while the TM of the already translated text was activated? But I am not sure if the analysis report only reported repetitions within the two document or whether it also looked for analogies. This is how my analysis looked:

I think it did the analysis correctly Nov 18, 2008

As far as I am aware, the repetitions line shows you the repeats within the document (and in the final analysis in both) and all the others (100%, 95-99%, etc.) show you matches in the TM. In other words, if you had selected an empty TM, these would all be 0.

I think it is not possible in Wf.
If the two texts are very similar in contents, with similar flow, then you might try to compare the two versions and to save the new part of text (let's say it will be in red font, when you go to menu find-format-font-red font colour.

The new text will be the nett addition to the previous material. You can even calculate fuzzy matches just on this new material, in case you have to.
