How to ensure consistency between different projects
Thread poster: Val1

Oct 3, 2014

Hi guys,

any smart tips on how to check consistency between several documents done in Studio? For example:

1. How to check that the segment in the original that is the same in all the documents is translated the same way in all of the translations. If possible, Studio should neglect tags and just look at the content.

2. Is there smething that can be done with segments that are very similar? For example, only one word is different between two segments in the source, but the translations differ in style and are therefore more different than the source segments are. So, is it possible to check for something like this:
- check for segments in source that are 95 % or more alike and compare them with translated segments that are less than 95 % alike (or some other set number).

Thanks a lot!
