Translation Memories (TM) entries are used to provide translation suggestions to linguists working in the Editor. When a segment is active in the Editor, the associated Lilt Memory is checked for TM entries with similar phrases. If any TM entries are found with similar phrases to the segment, the highest matching TM entry is displayed under the segment as a translation suggestion.
TM suggestion order:
- ICE Match (101%): The selected segment has the exact same words as a TM entry. In addition, the segments before and after the selected segment are also identical to a set of three consecutive segments in the TM.
- Exact Match (100%): The selected segment has the exact same words as a TM entry.
- Fuzzy Match (>75%): The segment has similar words to a TM entry, but there are significant differences.
- If no matches exist above 75%, Lilt provides a Machine Translation (MT) suggestion. If the language pair does not have MT support, no MT suggestion will be shown.
If the Organization Setting for
Case-sensitive matching is enabled, TM matching takes into account any differences in letter casing; otherwise, casing is ignored.
Whitespace differences affect TM matching. Differences in whitespace will result in reduced match percent.
The reviewed/unreviewed status of a TM entry does not affect match prioritization.
If multiple TM entries have the same match percent, the most recently updated TM entry is prioritized.
Viewing all TM matches for a segment
If there are multiple suggestions, they can be viewed in the Segment Context pane on the right side of the Editor. The
Segment context pane displays TM matches in sorted in the following order:
- Match percent
- Most recently updated
If there are any identical TM entries in the associated Lilt Memory, the
Segment context pane will display so. Click the
identical results dropdown to display the attributed user and timestamp for each identical TM entry.
