Hi everyone,

I apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed elsewhere, but I could not find any other similar discussion.

I've created a quite big Trados project (75.000 words, 11757 segments) using SDL 2011:
- checking *Confirm 100%* in the pre-translate setting, because I wanted that all the previous translations of this project were confirmed and not modified by the translator;
- setting *Multiple translation penalty* as 1, because I knew that the TM had some multiple translations and I wanted the translator to choose the best translation depending on the context.

After the pre-translation I noticed that Trados evaluated as 100% some segments that had multiple translations in the TM and that I was expecting as 99% considering my penalties setting. This has caused some problems with the translation because Trados has automatically picked and confirmed the translation results, sometimes going wrong.

Another strange thing is that I can't see any fuzzy percentage next to the translation status icon: when I click on the segments I can see it only in the Translation Results window.

I encounter this behaviour opening the project both with SDL 2011 and 2015.

Does anyone know why this happens? Is it maybe caused by some wrong project setting?

Thank you very much for your help.
