My customer made some minor changes (550 words) to an original document I translated (8,000 words) and asked me to translate just the changes by running them through Studio with the same memory and the same everything etc. To my horror, instead of skipping through the 100% matches, Trados keeps stopping and changing them to 99% matches by adding spaces before and/or after the (4,000 plus) tags. To change the tags is going to be worse than translating the original document as some sentences have 7 tags in a row, or they are scattered all through the unit. I can't even see most of the changes.... Are my settings wrong? Please help, I am desperate.Collapse

Can you pre-translate after reducing the match "tolerance" to 99%?

Hi Mike, thank you for your reply. Yes I can, only the spaces are still all over the place so I have to check every sentence with a 99% or less match, which is the whole problem.

it can be worthwhile to correct these "niggles" in the target document, i.e. block-replace double spaces with a single space in Word? Then iterate until all double spaces are gone...
Just a suggestion.
