There are situations in which you will want to reset the quality of your machine translation (MT), purge, or preserve a memory you've created. Degradation in the quality of machine translation suggestions can occur over time if poor translation memory data is uploaded. See TM Size and Content Guidelines for guidelines on what TM data is best suited for Lilt.
Resetting the MT
If you feel the quality of your machine translation has degraded over time, you can Reset the MT from the "Edit Memory" page under "Memories." Resetting the MT resets the automatic editor suggestions to a clean slate, and additionally re-trains the model on all confirmed segments in your memory.
Your TB and TM entries will remain untouched.
Purging a memory
If you want to restore your memory to a clean state, click the "Purge" button from the "Edit Memory" page under "Memories."
Warning: Purging the memory will remove all the custom TB and TM entries.
This action resets the automatic editor suggestions to a clean state, but does not retrain on the existing TM data.
Preserving Lilt Memories
By default, Lilt Memories adapt to what they see being translated, meaning the memory learns from the linguistic activity of the translators and reviewers. However, if for some reason the memory must be kept the way it is, it's possible to freeze it in time and stop it from adapting.
To do this for a new memory, simply toggle the switch marked "Adaptive memory" to off and create the memory.
To preserve an existing memory in its current state, open it from the list of memories, click on the settings tab, and toggle the switch marked "Adaptive memory" to off, and save.
Disabling memory adaptation
In certain rare cases, you may want to disable adaptation of a Memory, so that the MT suggestions provided by that memory do not reflect the content you have upload to it as TMX or translated in the editor.
When creating a new memory, this can be achieved by disabling the "Enable adaptive memory" setting in the creation dialog.
For existing memories, this can be done by navigating to the appropriate memory on the Memories page, clicking "Settings" in the left navigation bar, and then disabling the "Enable adaptive memory" switch.
If you create a memory with adaptation disabled, you will still be able to enable it later, should you need to.
