Can you please help me find how many duplicates I have in this file ?


My questions :

- What is the line "répétitions" (=repetitions or duplicates) ? Are these internal perferct matches ?
- Why does "répétitions entre fichiers" (=cross-files duplicates) seem to be zero, whereas there are 166 words of 100% just below ?
- Why the "interne" (internal) lines are not listed just below "répétitions" if the latter is about internal matches (see my first question) ?

Thanks for your deciphering this !

Repetitions and fuzzy matches Feb 2, 2017

Hi Louis,

The line 'repetitions' is the number of words in repeated segments (ie. segments which appear more than once in your file). These translations do not come from the TM but are new text. Once you have translated the first occurrence of such a segment, your translation will be 'autopropagated' (copied) into all further instances of that segment.

The line "répétitions entre fichiers" is zero in your case because you only have one file. This line is for repetitions across several files (ie. what I described above but across many files).

Then the next lines with the percentages are the fuzzy matches from the TM (ie. a similar translation exists in your TM).

The last two lines under the heading "Interne" are fuzzy matches which are not from your TM, but within the new text in your file. This is similar to the repetitions but the segments are not quite identical. Once you have translated the first instance of one of those segments, the similar segments further down the file will be marked as fuzzy match which means you can almost re-use the same translation again but might have to make minor (or not so minor) adaptations.

I hope this makes things clearer.

Too bad the ergonomy of SDL is that poor.
