Dear colleagues,

I am translating word documents in TagEditor I am experiencing a behaviour that annoys me a lot: Let's say I have a segment "article 1", and I translate it into "Artikel 1". I'd expect Trados to recognize further appearances like "article 2", "article 3" and so on as fuzzy matches or even repetitions, replacing the number as a placeable. However, those subsequent segments are presented as "no matches" every time, which is quite annoying. This is independent from the minimum match value setting.

Thanks in advance for any help,
kind regards,
