Trados Studio 2011: "Analyse" kills all "Repeats"?!

Hello everyone,

I just experienced a weird behavior when I finished my current project:

Upon completion, I saved some numbers on matches and then did a new "Analyse" - and from two documents that Trados previously recognized as being identical to 88% (shown as 88% "Repeats"), all the repeated segments were "Context matches" after the new analysis, with only some 3% 100%-matches remaining.

Trados saw it, I still see it - but Trados somehow doesn't see it anymore! How comes? Has anyone an idea with respect to this?

Kind regards

Christopher

As in the thread title: Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Edition, patched, on Windows 7 and up-to-date Java 6.

I wanted to add that I have not changed the Analyze parameters for the second pass, just in case this wasn't obvious.

Source texts were MS Word 2010 docx, which were correctly converted to and fro. The target docx looks as it should, it's just the analysis inside Trados which shows different values and omits the repetitions now.

If I understood you correctly, you analysed your project before and after translation. Repetitions are new segments that are not included in the TM and are repeated. After you have completed the translation, the segments are included in the TM and no longer new, so they no longer count as repetitions.

Yes, that's right. Nevertheless, I would have expected that all the repetitions get converted to 100% matches, because (obviously) they are all translated by the same target sentence.
I wonder why they became "sorted in" as lower percentage matches...

Edit: After reading further documentation, I smacked my forehead. The identical segments with identical preceding segments get classified as context matches, of course!
Sometimes, you don't see the obvious because you're too close in front of the monitor. Consider the question resolved, and thanks again!
