  2. In the top right corner, select Advanced search.

  3. Fill in the Phrase text box using available elements:

    • search areas – select one of the options from the dropdown list:

      • source.

      • sourceBroad.

      • target.

    • conjunctive operators – select one of the options from the dropdown list:

      • AND.

      • OR.

    • parenthesis () – use it to build more complex Concordance Advanced search queries and to control the order of importance of the searched elements, for example:

    Note

    Refer to the Concordance Syntax Search to find the detailed information about constructing Concordance queries.

  4. If required, select the following parameters:

    • Reverse matches – If you select this parameter, the search returns the match results found for a reverse language pair than the one selected from the Language combination dropdown.

      For example, when you selected English (USA) => French (France), this parameter will return also the results for the French (France) => English (USA) search.

      Note

      Your XTM Cloud Administrator needs to enable this parameter in the Configuration > Translation > TM > Matches – general section by selecting the Reverse memory matching checkbox.

    • Language variants – When selected, this parameter returns the match results found for every variant of the target language selected from the Language combination dropdown.

      For example, when you selected English (USA) => French (France), this parameter will return the results available for English (USA) => every French language variant.

      To search for every English language variant => every French language variant, additionally select the Reverse matches parameter.

      Note

      Your XTM Cloud Administrator needs to enable this parameter in the Configuration > Translation > TM > Matches – general section by selecting the Match against all language variants checkbox.

    • Approved memory only – If you select this parameter, the search only returns the results from the approved Translation Memory.

      Find more information about approved and not approved TM in the Translation Memory topic, in the Segment statuses created in XTM section.

  5. If required, select the Tag_circle_black_gray.jpg Tags button to narrow down your search results.

  6. From the Customer dropdown, select:

    • All – to search in TM of all customers available on your XTM Cloud instance.

  7. From the Language combination dropdown, select one or more required language pairs.

    Note

    Each selected language pair will be displayed on a separate tab in the search results table.

  8. Select Search.

    As the result:

    Based on the selected criteria, Concordance will search for a maximum of 50 results within one language pair, from which all duplicate entries (in which the source segments and the target segments are the same) will be excluded.

    If you have selected Reverse matches parameter, Concordance will search for another maximum of 50 results for the reversed language pair. In this case, the results of both searches will be displayed as an aggregated list with a maximum of 100 entries, from which duplicate entries (in which the source segments and the target segments are the same) will be excluded.

    The Concordance search results are first sorted by:

    1. The selected criterion.

    2. The score.

The results of the Concordance Advanced search will be displayed in a table with the following information:
  • Score – displayed as an ordinal number on the results list, expresses the relevance of the search result – the most relevant result is marked with number 1.

  • Source – displays the latest entries from the Translation Memory.

  • Target – displays target language phrases in the Translation Memory.
