How do I get the CMs and 100 % matches to be displayed according to TM?

I received a big file on 130,000 words where most of the segments already are translated and I only need to translate the remaining 4.5 %. But these are spread out in the file so I need to scroll from segment to segment, and because the TM markings now in the SDLXLIFF file don't match with what's displayed in the TM results window in Studio, it takes much longer when I need to check every segment what is displayed in the TM results window.

For example, I have a segment which is not marked with CM or 100 % (only have a green checkmark). But when I browse to this segment, the result in the TM window shows CM.

I tried pre-translating the whole file, but still the same faulty display of TM matches.

Check or lock Dec 26, 2015

If you are paid for checking, then just check. If you are not paid for checking, ask your client to lock all segments they don't pay for. You can filter confirmed segments and lock them yourself, but this imposes responsibility. When you ask your client to lock unnecessary segments, your client is responsible for it.
