Hi everybody,

can anybody explain me why I get, say, 70% full matches and 30% no matches when I compare the TM stored from a previous analysis of 40 source files with the files I have to translate, and on the contrary I get 15% repetition, 30% full matches and 50% no matches when I analyse the same target files with a TM I have created by aligning the old source files and their correspondent translation?

I got this results after setting the "alignment penalty" at 0.

Thanks in advance,

Fabio

Different segmentation Feb 23, 2006

Maybe because the TM from the analysis contains different segments than the aligned TM?

Hi Hynek,

thanks for your quick reply. How can it be possible? The source and target files I aligned where almost perfect, that means I had to change very few "connections" in WinAlign, I never joined nor split any segments.

Am I forgetting something?

Penalty Feb 23, 2006

Hello,
for aligned TUs there is a penalty in the standard settings of Trados.
