The ST is a weather forecast. In order to have more repetitions when I analyze it, I have edited it. I made the sentences complete,for example, I made "Cloudy this evening and tonight" into "The weather will be cloudy this evening and tonight". And I tried to use the same word and sentence sturcuture in different places. When I analyzed the edited text, the repetitions become higher. Then I started to translate the edited text, but there there were not as many matches as I would expect. I need to edit the text again. This time how to edit the ST in order to have more matches?

Dear Jia,

Once you generate the TXML file, you cannot edit the source document unless you remove or rename the TXML file and re-open the document in WFP again.

If you need an example files with enough matches (not what you can repetitions), you can download a file at the following link. Also, it includes an introduction to WFP that could be useful for you:
