Very high match rates when the segment to translate is very different from the source segment in the translation memory
Description: In some cases, memoQ can return a TM entry as a high percentage match for a source segment that is very different. Consider the situation on the below screenshot
Segment 2 was confirmed and saved to the TM before, and contains a number and a pair of tags. Segment 1 contains something non-textual, in this case a series of asterisk characters. The TM entry is listed as a 99% hit which is obviously not desirable, as there is no similarity at all.
The occurs under the following circumstances (all of the below criteria must be met):
- The translation source segment is Korean, Japanese, or Chinese.
- The TM was created in a memoQ or memoQ server version older than memoQ 2015 build 100 (7.8.100), and has not been repaired since then.
- The memoQ or memoQ server version being used is memoQ 2015 build 100 (7.8.100) or newer.
