I'm making a translation memory for two Japanese-Chinese (PRC and TW) translators, and am having trouble with the segmentation rules.
I will be doing the typesetting on this project, and need to keep the document in its original format, which includes the two byte middle dot "・" ( in several series of terms.
I have made both the middle dot and the slash (/) segmentors, but when I "Analyse" with Workbench, the number of segments (and consequently the number of matches) is unaffected.
Am I doing something wrong here?
