Hello everyone,

I would like to know if there is an option in Trados 2014 that allows to set penalties. My goal is to not take into account capital letters in the penalies in order to have more 100%.

For example, if the source segment contains words in capital letters and I have the exact translation in my TM but witout capital letters, I get something like 97%. I would like to have an exact match. Is that possible?

Thank you very muche for our help !

Purpose of having non-exact match rated as 100%? Feb 2, 2015

First of all, there's a dedicated forum for Trados: why didn't you ask your question there?

Secondly, what benefit would you get from having non-exact matches displayed as 100%? If punctuation, capitalization etc. is different, having the match displayed as fuzzy serves a purpose: to attract your attention to the fact there's a mismatch that may need to be fixed.
