Hello everybody,

this is my first post so forgive me if I am not proceeding properly/if I am asking the obvious/if I am asking for something that was already answered: I made several searches and couldn't find the info I am looking for.

I must give a quote to a client that has several hundred files to translate. Many of the files are almost identical but not entirely.

After creating a new project with an empty TM, I ran the batch task 'Analyze files'. The result shows that here are around 80% cross-repetitions on the total amount of words in all the files, but doesn't state the proportion among those (as in the amount of 75% repetitions across files, the amount of 50% repetitions across files, etc.).

I thus don't know how to interpret this data, and am unable to offer a quote, apart from a quote for the number of new words.

What am I misunderstanding or doing wrong?

I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter!

Many thanks
