Table 17. Fuzzy matches parameters

Parameter

Description

Search for fuzzy matches even if specific matches found

By default, if there is an ICE or a 100% leveraged match, XTM Cloud does not search for a fuzzy match.

You can change this behavior by selecting one or both options:

  • ICE

  • Leveraged

Show

95-99% fuzzy matches

For each category of fuzzy matches, you can specify if and when the match is displayed to the Linguist:

  • Yes – Fuzzy matches are always displayed to Linguists.

  • Only if its approval status is higher than the ICE or leveraged match

  • Only if its XLIFF:doc status is higher than the ICE or leveraged match – This option is available if the TIPP parameter has been enabled (for details, see General system settings).

  • Only if its XTM and XLIFF:doc status is higher than the ICE or leveraged match – This option is available if the TIPP parameter has been enabled (for details, see General system settings).

  • No – Fuzzy matches are never displayed to Linguists.

85-94% fuzzy matches

75-84% fuzzy matches

Populate target with

95-99% fuzzy matches

For each category of fuzzy match, you can specify when XTM Cloud should automatically enter it into the target segment:

  • Always, fixing inline differences

  • Only if inlines are the same

  • Never

85-94% fuzzy matches

75-84% fuzzy matches

Number of matches to display

You can set a maximum number of fuzzy matches which are displayed in XTM Workbench, in the Matches docked panel for a single segment. The options are:

  • 1

  • 2

  • 3 (default)

  • 4

  • 5

If segment has one number, which is different, substitute number & try to promote fuzzy to leveraged match

If the only difference between the current source segment and the one from the TM is just one number, when you select the Permit checkbox, XTM Cloud inserts the correct number and upgrades the fuzzy match to a 100% leveraged match.

The setting works when:

  • only one number differs the current source segment from the one from the translation memory.

  • the decimals in the current source segment are separated with full stop or comma, e.g. 10,5 or 10.5.

  • the currency or measurement units come after or before a number in the current source segment and are written without space, e.g. 10cm, $15, $10,50.

The setting does NOT work when:

  • two or more identical or different numbers differ the source current segment from the one from the translation memory.

  • a number in the current source segment is a combination of digits and letters, e.g. 43AB32.

  • a different character is used to separate digits within a number, e.g. 1'000'000, 1'000'000,50, 10 000.
