Wf Pro: extract frequents - some questions
Thread poster: pcs_MCIL
Apr 2, 2013

Today I used for the first time the Extract frequents feature in in WF Pro 3.1.5.

I analyzed the document, and the analysis returned 38 repetitions.
After going into PM perspective > Extract frequents > , I got a new TXML file with just the repetitions... 66 segments!

1) How is that possible? If the analysis says there are 38 segments repeated, why the Extract Frequents-generated files has 66?

2) What's the difference between the Segments and the Segment columns in the Wf analysis?

You should type 2 (not 1) for "Extract segments that occur at least:"



Tried with 2 Apr 2, 2013

Tried with 2, now I get a TXML file with 20 segments.
I still don't get iticon_frown.gif

Each rep only once Apr 2, 2013

If it works right you should get one for each single repetition, so if one segment is repeated 10 times you should only see one.


Right! Apr 2, 2013

Thank you Heinrich, I didn't thought of that!
Now it's all clear.

The "Segments" column is for the number of segments.

The other one is "% Segments," or the percentage of segments that number represents (out of total segments in document).

You can change this % to "words" in the Preferences menu. Click on the "Translation Memory" section.
