Dear colleagues,

I've got a little problem with Trados 2007, there are some segments that are different but Trados treats them as if they were the same one. Example:

I've got a translation with some dates to translate, they are in French: "lundi, 30 juillet 2012" and "mardi, 31 juillet 2012". There is clearly a difference between "lundi" and "mardi" and "30" and "31"!

But my TM only saves one of these two segments in spite of their difference.

- I translate "lundi, 30 juillet" and I click on "Set and close", theoretically the segment is saved now.
- Then I go to the segment "mardi, 31 juillet" and I translate and save it.
- When I go back to "lundi, 30 juillet" and open it the translated segment is yellow (what means in TagEditor that it is not exactly the same as in the TM). The Trados window indicates me a 100% segment which is "mardi, 31 juillet" with its translation!!!

I think there is a problem in my TM configuration, I would like that any segments if they differ are treated separately. I tried to change the penalties, the concordance, etc., but it does not help.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Have a nice evening,

- Simone -
