Segments repeated within a job are labelled as repetitions. The first instance of a repetition is identified with a heavy arrow and subsequent repetitions with a lighter arrow .
Segments are considered repetitions if they match at least one of the following rules with the first rule taking precedence:
Segment 1 and Segment 2 contain identical texts with tags of the same type at the same places with the same tag metadata regardless of tag ids.
Segment 1 and Segment 2 contain identical texts with at most one formatting tag (may consisted of multiple formats) or a paired number tag surrounding it regardless of the surrounding tag; they may differ in that tag. Note that no other formatting or tags may be present within the text.
Segments with plural form are not considered repetitions.
If the Set segment status to confirmed for repetitions is enabled, the translation of a repeated segment is automatically propagated to all subsequent repetitions. When a linguist confirms a segment that is repeated later in the document, all repetitions of that segment are confirmed.
Clicking on the repetition icon crosses out the arrow to indicate an exception from the repetition. This allows the instance to have a different translation. If auto-propagation of repetitions is disabled, the first repetition exception is identified with greyed out arrows.
When flagging an LQA issue in a repetition, there must be a decision on how other instances of the repetition will be flagged. Select an option from the dropdown menu.
To disable/enable the auto-propagation of repetitions, follow these steps:
From the Settings page, scroll down to the section and click on Pre-translation.
From thepage, open the menu.
Settings are saved and repetitions are identified in the editors with greyed out and arrows.
After the first repetition is confirmed, segments with subsequent repetitions are auto-propagated and locked so as to be uneditable by Linguists.
To set up this use case, follow these steps:
