Hello everyone

Is there a way I can see or generate a report that shows whether a 95% match came from the translator's own TM or from the client's TM?

I often get files for proofreading where the client had pre-translated the file against his own, reliable TM, and then the translator used MT (with the client's consent).

Hello everyone

Is there a way I can see or generate a report that shows whether a 95% match came from the translator's own TM or from the client's TM?

I often get files for proofreading where the client had pre-translated the file against his own, reliable TM, and then the translator used MT (with the client's consent). But if there is an untranslated segment that is a 95% match for another segment that the translator translated via MT, it shows up in WFP5 as a "95%" match, in a way that is identical to if the 95% match came from the client's approved and reviewed TM.

I examined the source code of the TXLF file, but there doesn't seem to be any way to distinguish a fuzzy match from an unreviewed machine translation from a fuzzy match from a reviewed unit in the client's TM.

WFP5 fake fuzzy match

Any advice? I can't ask the client for the original, untranslated TXLF file.
