During or after the project is created, you can lock repetitions or 100% TM matches to improve efficiency.
Repetitions indicate that there are repeated segmentsin one single file.
Cross-file repetitions refer to some segments repeat among different files.
100% TMs match refers to the segments 100% matched with those stored in TMs.
By default, the locking priority levels 100% TMs matching for cross-file repetition. If a segment belongs to both internal and cross-file repetition, and has 100% TMs matching results, it's defined as coss-file repetition by default.
How to lock
1. Before the project is created, click Projects Management - Projects (Enterprise Edition) - Create project to enter the Create page. You can see three options under required Information: Lock repetitions, Lock cross-file repetitions and Lock 100% matches. After checking the check box, the corresponding segments will be locked automatically.
2. If you need to enable the lock for an existing project, you can select Projects Management - Projects (Enterprise Edition) - Details - Settings to enter the Settings page. Then check the box of Lock repetitions, and click Save at the bottom of the page to save the changes.
3. Pre-translation needs to be enabled when locking 100% matches. Pre-translation will be automatically enabled after selecting Lock 100% matches and can not be canceled.
Once a segment is locked, the icon will appear in the action bar during translation. The segment can't be edited once it's locked. The target saved the first time the segment appears will be automatically filled in.
