CM Criteria for Punctuation (QM v7.0)

End Punctuation

Checks whether the number and order of the punctuation marks are identical in the source and target paragraphs.

  • The criterion takes the following punctuation marks into consideration:
  • .
  • ,
  • :
  • ;
  • ?
  • !
  • ...

For this criterion, the filter for similar error groups errors in which the sentence delimiters differ in the same way in the source and target paragraphs (e.g. all paragraph pairs with ; in the source paragraph and , in the target paragraph).

Brackets

Checks whether the number and type of brackets used in the source and target paragraphs are consistent under consideration of the language.

  • The criterion takes into consideration the following brackets:
  • ()
  • []
  • {}
  • <>

The order of the use of brackets in the translation is not checked, as it may differ from the source text.

For this criterion, the filter for similar errors groups errors in which the brackets differ in the same way in the source and target paragraphs.
