CAT: SDL Trados 2006
File to analyse: 500000-word file in MS-Word format

Can any one give me some advice on this:

Let's say I have a 500000-word project, 20% of which are repetitions, how can I separate the 20% repetitions from the original file?

I know I can use the "Export frequent segments" to export segments of 2 or more occurrences, but the problem here is I cannot separate the repetitions totally from non-repeat part in the original file. If anyone may be of any help......
many thanks beforehand.

I often use Export Unknown Segments (99% or lower match value).

Cheer!

Repetitions may have 0% match value Jul 7, 2007

A file may have 50% repetitions but with 0% match value and I doubt "Export unknown segments" will play any role in the case. A wiser solution might be to separate (or "extract") the 50% repetitions from the non-repeat part and translate only the first occurrence of repetitions. What I want to do is only the first occurrence of repetitions should be left in the original file.

But how?

You doubt it, but have you tried it?

I suggest you should, because it works for me.

Nearly all TUs will be exported since they are all below 99% match value Jul 8, 2007

Repetitions may have 0% match value and if one uses "Export unknown segements 99% or lower match value", nearly all translation units will be exported I am afraid. What I want to do is only the first occurrence of repetitions should be left in the original file and all repeat occurrence can be excluded from the file, so that when I divide the file into different smaller parts and assign to different translators repeat translation can be avoided.
