Two TMs May 9, 2012

I noticed the same thing in WF Pro 3.0 on a job yesterday and asked the agency.
Their technology team answered: "Basically, we ran this document through two TMs because the project has two different end clients. The red asterisk marks the TM matches from the second client’s TM, so you should basically just ignore the marks and treat the scores as you usually would."

Which I did...
The asterisk disappears when you work in the segment and confirm it. But I only got one TM from the agency, so I don't know in what way the TM from the second client is updated.

(I look forward to Yasmins reply, who is the expert here)

Thank you, Koen. That makes sense to me as I am working with two TMs, one local and one remote.
Maybe, in your case, two TMs were used for pretranslation or analysis. I'm just guessing. I will wait for Yasmin's answer, too.

Rgds,

Red Asterisks May 9, 2012

Dear Silvia and Koen,

Your company uses a special application for analysis (and pre-translation) that allows having a main TM and secondary ones. Matches from the secondary TMs are marked with a red asterisk to be distinguished.

As long as your company did not provide you with any instructions on dealing with such marked segments differently, this should not make any difference for you as a translator. As Koen said, the asterisk disappears when you update/commit the segment to the TM.

Kind regards,
Yasmin
