From a French source text. So my 80% match is "Genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.)". Closely followed by "President of the medical Association of Zimbabwe, Dr X, read:" and "This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union."

But people ask for fuzzy match discounts - Go Figure!

I did not understand the post. I tried reading the post, thinking that the point had to do with the idea that reading was the most important element of education. Then I read the post, and tried to rethink what the title might mean. Can you explain further?

Sorry -( May 23, 2015

My Trados source segment had one word - the French word "lire" (to read/reading). Pretty obvious how that should be translated in the context of a primary school.

What came back were the three 80% matches that I posted. Only one of them even contained the word and none were of even the vaguest relevance.

I just thought it was funny!

It could have been a lot worse if they were subtle, easily missed, errors. Give me "glaring" every time in this contexticon_smile.gif
