In Studio 2011 SP2 I just got this: "In chapter 6.2.1 point 2:" and "In chapter 6.2.1 point 5:" were correctly recognized as 100% matches, but the number 2 was not replaced by 5 in the second target segment!

Is this normal? I cannot rely on 100% match translations in Studio if this is the caseicon_frown.gif

Not normat but does happen from time to time Sep 19, 2013

This is not something that happens all the time, but number recognition is not perfect.
This (and other reasons) is why one should never blindly trust 100% matches.

Although marketed and pushed that way, the true purpose of Translation Environment Tools is not cost savings and skipping entire segment of text because of some arbitrary statistical algorithm (that despite the common belief the machines cannot be wrong if only programmed the right way, does make mistakes). Their true purpose is to serve as a tool for the professional to do his or her work better. In this case, the true value of the 100% matches is better consistency.

Never encountered that with the old Trados or SDLX Sep 19, 2013

Well, I've never encountered that with the old Trados or SDLX. I mean, the number here doesn't have any suffix or anything that could understandably upset number recognition (Trados 2007 included).

I'm not justifying the error... Sep 19, 2013

...I'm just saying that it does (from my experience seldom) happen. However, if it starts happening frequently that becomes a concern and something to contact (or report here) SDL about.

100% Match Guaranteed Sep 19, 2013

... This is how you get a perfect match with TermInjector:

Use the following regular expression rule:

([A-Za-z]+) ([a-z]+) ([0-9]+)\.([0-9]+)\.([0-9]+) ([a-z]+) ([0-9]+) Dans le chapitre \3.\4.\5 point \7 

and you'll get this:

Dans le chapitre 6.2.1 point 2 :
Dans le chapitre 6.2.3 point 5 :
Dans le chapitre 7.2.1 point 10 :

Cheers,

Bernard
