I just need one amount including matches and no matches.

Traduction IT vers FR (repetitions) 1 597 000

Traduction IT vers FR (100%) 7 612 000

Traduction IT vers FR (95%) 797 000

Traduction IT vers FR (85%) 803 000

Traduction IT vers FR (75%) 497 000

Traduction IT vers FR (no match) 22 441 000

I really do not know how to interprete this. No matches 22 441 000 + matches 1 597 000 make the total? But then what is the difference between 1 597 000 and 7 612 000 (100%)?

Thx!

 The total amount is the sum of all figures Feb 15, 2011

The total wordcount is the sum of all your figures.

Completely new words will be in the "no matches" figure plus the "repetitions" figure. For the rest of the figures, the memory will serve you with sentences which will need different degrees of work to match the new source sentences. The higher the percentage, the lower the workload required when you edit them to match the meaning of the new source segment.

 total amount = 33 744 000 Feb 15, 2011

So u mean the total amount adding up all figures is = 33 744 000 words? But what is the difference between the first and the second line? Where it says repetitions and 100%?

This is a very strange table or is it me? I mean, when it says, for instance, 85%, eg 85% match, those words are not included in the 95% match?

The total is really the sum of all figures as you said?

And are we talking here thirty three thousand seven hundred and fourty four words or 33 million words?

 Usually, Feb 15, 2011

any statistical tool also shows the total. One line is just missing. The "Total".
Yes, it is the sum of all the lines.

Most do, yes. OmegaT is an example of a word count tool that doesn't show the total.

A repetition is a segment that occurs more than once in the source text. A 100% match is a segment that is exactly the same as a segment in the TM.

I mean, when it says, for instance, 85%, eg 85% match, those words are not included in the 95% match?

85% doesn't mean "85% only". It means "85%-94%".
