I normally don't deal in reduced rates for repetitions, so I've never worried about the difference before.

Now however I have a huge project and suddenly I need to decide on a discount.

Can someone explain the difference between these two rows in the "Analyse" function of DVX?

Thanks!

Hi,

An exact match comes from the TM.

Duplicates are 100% repetitions without a translation in a project. Thus, when you translate the first instance, they become exact matches tooicon_smile.gif

Hi Selcuk,

I wondered if that was the answer, except that even when I check the "use none" option for TMs, I still get lots of "exact matches".icon_confused.gif

Document partially translated? Or a file from another CAT tool?

Thanks. Had the same thought as you. There were pretranslations lurking. Thanks for the help!
