I know about confidentiality; not to use MT for confidentiality reasons.

But if for certain texts you do use MT/AT or MT Suggest,
I wonder how many times the source text will be sent to the MT/AT provider?
Just one time, or every time you click on the segment?
When you go back and forth in the text, check, proofread etc,, the text will be sent 4-5 times, or even more?

Some will send the source every single time you click on it. Others will send the source the first time until you confirm the translation and then not again.
