Wordfast score question

English to German
Aug 24, 2014

Hi there,
my name is Nadine I am a native German translator and am kind of a newby offering translations, I started using wordfast and have been signed by an agency and most of the time I go with the hassle of manually translating everything.
Sometime I use MT but rarely, here is my question:

I want to be able to offer higher volumes and am not quiet understanding the way a proofreader will judge my score, frankly I don´t want to ask the agency out of embarrasment.
Is it better to have a higher score in fuzzy matches maybe like 60% than a manually " n/a " score on the side tab or even a "0" score when I used MT and edited after?

Nothing about the score Aug 24, 2014

Dear Nadine,

If I got you right:

No one will judge the score; it is all about the TM and similarity of text segments - nothing about you.

Kind regards,

The what now? Aug 26, 2014

I have been using WF Classic for some years now and must admit I have no idea what this question means. I've read it several times and am none the wiser.
