Hello,
We need to cleanup a TM that contains 180K segments and where we would like to delete the segments where the source and the target are identical. Is there a way to find them in Studio 2009?
Thanks
Fabien

Use verifier Dec 9, 2010

Vial Project settings, Verification, QA Checker, Segments verification check for "Source and target are identical". This will give you the information you need.

Can't use verifier for TM maintenance Dec 9, 2010

Hello Jerzy,
thank you for your reply. Actually I am looking to cleanup a TM, so this is not part of a project where we apply QA checks on files translated or being translated.

We are looking for a command that can be executed in TM maintenance mode...

Sorry, no idea... Dec 9, 2010

Only maybe an export to TMX and usage of external tools?
Olifant or XBench could possibly have such function, but I never used those, at least not for that purpose.

Olifant does it, but it tends to crash terribly with large TMs.

Xbench offers these QA checks:

Find untranslated segments
Find segments with the same source text and different target text
Find segments with the same target t

XBench does it Dec 9, 2010

Thank you Spiros,
I just installed and tested XBench and it does seem to do the job.

I am happy to discover this new tool, thanks to you!
