Hello!

Does anybody know if it is possible to actually identify within the source text the segments that have been counted as repetitions?

The source text analysis tells me that there are 45 repetitions. My client wants to know precisely which segments these are. I`ve raked through the Pandora`s Box section of the manual but can`t find anything. It can`t be done... can it??

I also have access to Trados, but I am not a huge fan, and assume that if Wordfast can`t do it Trados has no chance. I suppose I am open to persuasion...

Thanks, any ideas appreciated.

Helen

If it is Wordfast Classic, do an Extract. The Extract produces two files, namely one with all the unique segments and one with all the repetitions. WFC's extract function can be buggy, though, so count the lines in the repetitions file to make sure that there are 45 of them before sending it to the client.

That seems to be the best solution!
