Imagine you were doing a reading of a play with different people assigned different voices. That's basically what I'm trying to accomplish here. I'm trying to create consistency between assigned segments but allow for inconsistency between the work of the different translators.

Thoughts?

*Before doing this, you should copy source to target for empty target segments in your main file so that all target segments are populated either with fuzzy matches or with source because highlighting only applies to target segments.
