I'm trying to find a way to count new segments in more meaningful way. I'm currently using MemoQ 2014. The problem with the wordcount is that the program counts every new segment (all of them) as new even if these segments are very similar to each other.
As a simplified example, assuming I have a file with two just two segments (not in the TM):
"He is a certified public accountant in the US. She is a certified public accountant in the US, too."
The wordcount would count these as two new segments even if normally the second segment is a 80-90% fuzzy match. Is there a way to get this kind of statistical information, which would be very useful to evaluate time requirements for large projects?
