    • Global level.

  2. Select Layers_FFB_Add_Configuration.png Add configuration and then Segmentation.

  3. In case of Project level and Customer level tabs, in the Select template step, in the Add configuration to template popup:

    1. From the obligatory Template dropdown, select the required template.

    2. Select Next step.

  4. In the Create your configuration step, in the Add configuration to template popup:

    2. Select the plus-solid_black.svg Add language button to specify the source language for which you would like to configure the segmentation rules.

      Note

      You can add multiple source languages to the same configuration type. To do so, use the plus-solid_black.svg Add language button.

      Result:

      A table containing segmentation rules for the selected source language is displayed. In this table, for each segmentation rule, you see information about:

      • Priority

      • Regex before break

      • Regex after break

      • the Break sentence parameter setting:

        • No – there will be no break in the source text in XTM Workbench in the places indicated by the regex expressions.

        • Yes – XTM Workbench will break the source text into separate segments in the place indicated by the regex expressions.

    3. In the segmentation rules table, you can:

      • select the required segmentation rule. To do so, select the checkbox to the left of the rule.

      • deselect the required segmentation rule. To do so, clear the checkbox to the left of the rule.

      • edit the segmentation rule. To do so, hover over the required table row and select the pen-solid.png icon on the right.

      • delete the segmentation rule. To do so, hover over the required table row and select the trash-solid.svg icon on the right.

      • restore the default source language segmentation setting. To do so, in the top-left corner of the table, select the clock-rotate-left-restore.svg Restore default button.

      • delete all segmentation rules for the selected source language. To do so, in the top-left corner of the table, select the trash-solid.svg Delete all button.

    4. To add a new segmentation rule:

      1. In the Regular expression pattern before break text field, enter the relevant regular expression pattern (for example (^|\p{Zs}|\p{Ps}|\p{Po})\p{Nd}\..

      2. In the Regular expression pattern after break text field, add the relevant regular expression pattern (for example \p{Zs}).

      3. Select the relevant Break sentence toggle switch setting:

        • off – there will be no break in the source text in XTM Workbench in the places indicated by the regex expressions.

        • on – XTM Workbench will break the source text into separate segments at place indicated by the regex expressions.

      4. Select Add.

      Result:

      Your segmentation rule is displayed in the regular expressions table. It has the highest priority and is automatically selected for your template.

    Note

    If needed, you can go back to the previous step. To do so, select the Previous step button in the bottom left-hand corner of the popup. Alternatively, select the green bullet above the configuration process step name.

To display your configuration, select Configuration > Filter templates. You will see the configuration on the the relevant tab screen, in the relevant file filter template.
