Repetitions versus Cross-file Repetitions

In an analysis of 870 files I see both Repetitions and Cross-file Repetitions. I can understand the latter category, but what do Repetitions mean with 870 files?

Repetition: One file, cross file repetition: repetitions from one file to the others Jul 24

Repetition would not take into account segments that are identical among multiple files. For one project it, therefore, would make sense to take into account both counts.

The problem is when an agency splits a project between multiple translators and one translator has segments that another translator has translated and sent to the TM.

So the file-intern repetitions in file #1, those in file #2 , in file #3 etc. are totalled in the category Repetitions (over 870 files)?

Yes, that is how I also understand it.

Also, note that the count for "repetitions" do not include the count for "cross-file repetitions". So if you want to know the number of repetitions throughout the project, you have to add "repetitions" and "cross-file repetitions" together.
