The Trados analysis of the text I'm working on identified more then 50% repetitions.
Now I'm working on that text and I am wondering where & when these repetitions will show up. It is a very large text, > 30 K, but it does not look like there will be > 50% repetition.

Why segments identified as "repetition" in the Trados analysis don't show as repetition during translation?
I'm working in TagEditor, is that of any influence?

The file is a converted PDF file with the usual chaotic layout, its tidied up a bit but it still contains sentences cut in three segments, sudden breaks, changing fonts etc. So sentences that my human eye recognizes as matches (the words are the same), are not recognized by Trados as matches because of the layout differences, or simply because they have been cut in three or more segments.
