The Segment Context menu is a way for users to access information stored in the associated project Lilt Memory. This information is broken down into three main elements: Translation Memory matches, Termbase and Segment Metadata. The segment context sidebar menu has a few tools to help linguists with consistency across the document they are translating.
By default, the Segment Context will populate with the full source segment and execute a search for the current segment in focus. You can modify this search as needed within the editable text box.
If there are any associated Termbases or glossaries uploaded into the Lilt Memory, reviewed terms will appear in the segment context menu for the in-focus segment along with any metadata that belongs to the term. Terms must be reviewed for them to show up as highlighted in the segments.
If there are any TM entries for the segments in focus, they will appear in the segment context menu with the match percentage and metadata for the entry. The highest percentage match appears at the top of the list and the duplicate entries are noted. The menu will show TM matches up to 75%.
Lilt looks for metadata based on common patterns within files, such as Excel cell locations, JSON keys, web page property types, etc. If your file is highly customized or provides metadata in an alternate method, that metadata may not show up on the Segment Metadata section of the Segment Context sidebar. Metadata typically is structured into relevant information for a given word regarding the part of speech, participle, case, as well as links to image context.
- If there is no metadata available, Lilt will not display the green 'Metadata available' button.
