I have translated 2 batches of one book. For batch 1, I've translated all New, fuzzy match and 100% match words, as they are payable. For batch 2, as the 100% match is not payable, so I need to leverage all batch 1 translation into batch 2 first.

But I found a problem, some segments sequence in 100% match are changed after I pretranslated batch 2. After investigatin, I found that should be a problem of SDLX, it counted below two different sources as 100% match when apply TM. And prioritize to use the one with braket translation as the target translation.

EN Source Translation in batch 1


After pre-translate by using batch 1 TM in batch 2:

EN Source Pretranslated in batch 2


My question is, could anyone tell me how to control the applying sequence in TM of SDLX?

Many thanks!
