I'm posting this here because I'm having trouble finding this information anywhere in the TRADOS user manuals.
My question: what is the exact definition of a TRADOS repetition?
In other words, if my TRADOS analysis says a file has 10,000 new words and 5,000 repetitions
Repetitions can be both repetions of "fuzzy matches" and repetitions of "no matches." (Trados doesn't distinguish between the quality of the match that was repeated.) Also note that Trados counts repetions based on all files that are being analyzed. This means that you'll get a different number of repetitions, if you analyze a file separately or as part of a batch.
This means that you'll have to translate 10000 new words and 5000 repetions of either new matches or fuzzy matches.
