Filtering segments

In Editor you can filter segments by various criteria. For example, you can view only confirmed or unconfirmed segments, and select segments that contain comments or errors.

To filter segments, click the funnel icon  over the Segments pane and select a combination of parameters in the window that opens. Filtering criteria are located on several tabs: Segment status, Source text, Comments, Errors, and Source of last input.

You can combine different filtering parameters and simultaneously search and replace text in the filtered segments.

Filtering results are updated in real time as you configure filters.

As you change the text in segments, you can use the  button to update the search results.

To reset filters and display all segments, press .

 

Segment Status

On the Segment Status tab segments can be filtered by their status.

 

In the Confirmation field you can select only confirmed or only unconfirmed segments.

A project manager can specify at which stage the segments must be confirmed or unconfirmed by selecting the stage in the Task field.

If it makes no difference for you whether the segments are confirmed or not, but you want to filter the segments which have already been edited to any extent, leave the Confirmation field empty and check theChanged box.

In the Task field on the right, you can choose at which stage the segments should have been changed.

In the Author of changes field you can specify that the system must filter only segments changed by a particular user.

 

To filter segments that are currently at a certain stage, select it in the Current task field.

 

If you are assigned to one of the workflow stages, you can filter only the segments that have been confirmed in the previous stage, but are not yet confirmed in the next stage, in other words, available to you. To view only such segments, check the Available for editing box.

Keep in mind that this filter does not consider temporary segment blocking caused by other users working with segments at the same stage (if the assignment is shared).

 

Source Text

On the Source Text tab you can filter segments by the content of their original segments.

To filter only the segments which are repeated within the document, check the Repetitions box.

If you excluded some segments from repetitions, you can filter them out using the Excluded from repetitions flag.

You can enable both flags simultaneously to view all segments with an identical original, including those manually excluded from repetitions.

 

To check numbers in the translation, you can use the Segments with numbers in source checkbox to view only segments containing at least one Arabic numeral in the original text.

If you want to hide segments consisting only of digits, use the Hide segments containing only numbers checkbox.

 

Comments

You can use the With comments checkbox to filter segments with comments.

 

Errors

On the Errors tab you can filter the segments in which errors have been detected.

To eliminate the most serious errors, check the Critical box to view segments with errors for which the action Require error correction has been chosen in the project quality assurance settings. A segment with such errors cannot be confirmed, therefore they must be corrected.

Keep in mind that if on the Segment Status tab you selected the filter Confirmed, segments with critical errors will not be identified.

 

Using the Non-critical checkbox, you can view segments with errors that do not preclude segment confirmation. These are errors for which the command Activate error warnings has been selected in the quality control settings of the project.

 

If you ignored some errors by checking the Ignore box on the QA Check tab next to warnings, you can find segments with such errors with help of the Ignored filter. Please note that this filter is available only to the users who have been assigned a task for this document.

 

Also, keep in mind that filters for segments with errors ignore errors that have been disabled in the quality assurance settings for the project (these are errors, for which the Ignore errors action is selected).

 

For more information on handling errors, see Quality Assurance.

 

Source of Last Input

On the Source of last input tab you can filter segments by the source of their translation.

Use 101 and 102% filters to view segments into which context matches from a translation memory have been inserted.

Select the filter 100 % if you want to see the segments with exact matches.

With help of the Fuzzy matches filter you can find segments into which exact matches below 100% have been inserted.

 

To view segments with machine translation, check the Machine translation box.

 

If you want to view only segments translated manually, use the filter From scratch.

 

Please note that the From scratch filter only finds segments translated entirely manually, without the use of machine translation or TM matches.

 

Also keep in mind that the source used in this filter is the most recent insertion. For example, if first a fuzzy match from the translation memory was inserted into a segment, and then it was replaced by a 102% match, the segment will be filtered as a 102% match.
