Box

Description

Paragraph based segmentation

Sentence based segmentation

Select the segmentation method to be used on source documents in this language. If you intend to populate the translation memory by importing translation units (TUs), the rule should match the rule used to create the imported TUs.

Rules

This box lists the rules used to create sentence length segments. For example, the Full stop rule is one rule used to identify where a sentence ends. All of the rules listed here are applied to source text to identify where sentence breaks occur.

If you chose Paragraph based segmentation, the Rules box and buttons are disabled. You cannot create rules to identify the end of a paragraph.

Add

Click this to add a new rule to identify the end of a segment. When you click this button the Add Segmentation Rule dialog box is displayed.

Edit

Select a rule and click this to edit the rule. When you click this button the Edit Segmentation Rule dialog box is displayed.

Remove

Select a rule and click this to remove the rule from the list.

Reset to Defaults

Select this to reset the list to the default settings for the language. Any new rules you have added and any changes you made to default rules, will disappear.
