A segment is the chunk of text up to and including segment delimiters. The most common segment delimiters include punctuation that ends a sentence. In other words, most segments are sentences.

A string is a piece of text in e.g. software localisation that is treated as a single unit. This could be a single word, or it could be several sentences.
