XTM Cloud v 13.0

Repeated segments (Repetitions)

XTM continually checks the TM database and updates the matches displayed in XTM Workbench. This is particularly important for repeated segments. In such cases, XTM identifies repetitions during project creation so that when the first instance of the repeated segment is translated, this translation will be propagated throughout the document to all repeated segments as they appear in the workspace.

You can identify repeated segments by the icon: copy-solid.png. You can perform two actions by clicking on it:

  • Go to first repeated segment – takes you to the first instance of a repeated segment

  • Filter repeated segments – activates a filter that displays all the segments with repetitions found in the document

Repeated segments are displayed by default as Matches in the docked panel. Clicking on the tick icon in the target section automatically applies the translation. Repeated segments are marked with the letter “R” in the Score column.

Inserting repeated segments
  1. Go to the Matches docked panel. Hover over the Score column on the left.

  2. File repetitions are marked Repeat - matched with segment (number of the matched segments). In the target column, select the check icon image413.png to insert repetition or the curly brackets iconimage414.png to insert repetition with inline tags.

  3. Project repetitions are marked Repeat - matched across files. In the target column, select the check icon image413.png to insert repetition or the curly brackets icon image414.png to insert repetition with inline tags.
