WorldServer 11.6. and later
I have heard about the the Translation memory usage statistics but I am not sure how these new feature works. Can you tell me more?
Starting from version 11.6., WorldServer now records the number of segment matches that each translation memory (TM) provides for each task during the segmentation process, as well as the number of times each individual segment has been used as a match. This information gives you a better understanding of which TMs and segments provide the most value.
The number of matches found in each TM is displayed in the task history. Here is an example:
In the exampleabove, the project type has used a single TM (Default) and that TM has given 25 segment matches to the task in question. If you use a TM sequence, however, the number of matches is calculated for each TM, as in the following example:
At a segment level, the usage count is displayed if you make the Usage Count column active on the Translation Memory page (under Tools > Translation Memories):
You can also see it in the System Attributes section when viewing or modifying information about a TM entry:
The usage count is updated every time an asset is segmented.
