Hi! The scenerio is that we have a rather large file with over 73% repetitions, the customer does not wish to pay anything to parse the file or he wishes to pay only for the balance unmatched words. Please note these are repetitions in the source file and we have no glossary of anykind to routinize into the TM. The idea now is to filter the repetions and develop a glossary. Now - how to filter the repetionsß The analysis shows only the percentage of the repetitions and not any words. Does anyone have a method to get over the time consuming processing of the repeats. All helping hints are welcome. Best regards, Brandis

Export the unknown segments Dec 5, 2009

After analysis you can save the unknown segments (set to 99 % instead of 85 as default) as rtf or txt. That I do routinely. All repetitions will be excluded. Set also the penalties to 0 in Translation memory options.
Regards
Heinrich
