Hi,

This may sound as a simple question but I couldn't find any answer searching over the forum here.

I'm reviewing SDLXLIFF document in Studio 2009 and have plenty of similar segments that contain a few words and tags. After confirming one segment, the tags in other segments (containing the same text but different tags) get overwritten, thus resulting in tag errors. See example:

Sentence 1.
Press Tag1.

Sentence 2.
Press Tag1Tag2Tag3.

What happens is, that after I review sentence no. 1, sentence no. 2 becomes 100% match and the tags in it get overwritten to "Press Tag2." instead of remaining as it should be "Press Tag1Tag2Tag3."

I need to have the auto propagation function turned on, as there are thousands of repetitions in the text but I would need to make Studio distinguish between such tag differences.

I've gone through all the tag, placeable and variable settings but couldn’t find a solution to it.

Thanks in advance for any help or for link to any topic that handles this.
Ryszard

Try unchecking 2 options May 31, 2012

"Atopropagate exact matches to confirmed segments" and
"Confirm segment after autipropagating an exact match"

in: Menu >Tools > Options > Editor

Best

That's only work-around Jun 1, 2012

Hi Alexey,

What you suggest works but it is only work-aroud. Studio still cannot tell the difference between:

Press Tag1.

and

Press Tag1Tag2Tag3.

Would anybody suggest some settings to ensure that such tag differences are properly recognized?
Thank you.
Ryszard

Then search the knowledge base Jun 2, 2012

or ask SDL. But at least using this work-around you will save some time. I am not a computer wizard to know if there's a more permanent solution to this problem. Maybe yes, and maybe no.
