Tools like Verifika offer more advanced QA checks for translation consistency: you can instruct them to ignore numbers etc. and they can also check in the reverse direction (same target, different source).

For OS X I've created an AppleScript. (For Windows an AHK script for Notepad++ should be possible.)

Purpose: Check your translation project both on identical source segments with different translations and on identical translations with different source segments, while ignoring differences in tags, numbers, punctuation marks and spaces.

  • Export your current project as a TMX file.
  • Open it in TextWrangler.
  • Open the script in the Script Editor and run it.
  • Check the two files "Identical sources" and "Identical targets".
  • Make any necessary modifications to your project while navigating to the relevant segments via the Find dialogue box.

Have fun with this script!
