Prevent Repetitions from becoming 100% matches

Dear colleagues,

I've been told that during translation, once a segment has been translated once, it will after that be recognized as a 100% match instead of as a repetition.

I'd like to prevent this, and was told there was a way of doing this in an html.ini file. But, I cannot find documentation of that file and its settings.

Can anyone please point me to such documentation (or even tell me what I have to introduce into that ini file to achieve the objective described above?)

Thank you very much in advance!

Achim

That's correct. That's the fundamental idea, concept and use of every translation memory.

Why? I don't see any reason why this could be useful? And what is the desired alternative? A "no match"? And if so, why would anyone like to get a no match for an already translated sentence? I suggest that you work without a Translation Memory if you do not want to get the advantage from it.

This is by design of the translation memory concept and has nothing to do with the html.ini or any other configuration file.

However, you can create your own html and configure the html ini to exclude specific parts of the html file.
A typical use case are multilingual files like this html code:
<p lang="de">Das ist der erste Satz.</p>
<p lang="en">This is another sentence.</p>
You can configure the ini to prevent any "p" elements that have a attribute "lang" with the value "de" from analysis and translation.
But this has nothing to do with your requirement

Kind regards,
Stefan Gentz
