Sometimes, while performing translation on a particular file, you might come across an TM match that you did not expect to appear. This article explains how to find out the origin of a particular TM match in the file, in XTM Cloud.
In XTM Workbench, go to the Matches panel and click on the Metadata panel for a particular TM match. You will find three pieces of information with which you can to identify the TM match:
Project → Name of the project from which the TM match in question originates.
Database ID → Unique ID of the TM match.
File → Name of the source file from which the TM match originates.
Regardless of whether we apply this TM match to a target segment or insert new translation, these values will not change in the existing TM match after a new TM is created, even if the file name might be missing in the existing TM match’s metadata in XTM Workbench.
You can search for a TM match via its Database ID. To do so, select TM → Manage. You can then also easily find out which project the segment was originally created in.
Good to know!
To easily view all the relevant segments in which a particular word or phrase has occurred, you can do the following:
Open the original project in XTM Workbench.
Select File → Find and replace → Options.
Select the Include segments from all files option.
Search for the word or phrase that you want to find. All TM segments that contain it will be displayed.
