QM Criteria for the Translation Consistency (QM v7.0)

Empty Target

Checks target paragraphs for missing translations and reports an error if a target paragraph is empty, but has the editing state Touched or Translated.

Tip

Any target paragraphs that are left empty will also remain empty in the checked-out document. A paragraph reported as an error might have been left empty on purpose. Check whether the reported errors need to be corrected or can be ignored.

Identical Segments

Checks whether segments in the source and target paragraphs are identical and reports an error if this is the case.

  • Segments that only consist of the following elements are not taken into consideration.
  • Numbers
  • Punctuation marks such as . , : ! ? + * % etc.
  • Placeables
  • Spaces

Different Source Text – Same Translation Text

Checks whether different source-text segments have the same translation.

Same Source Text - Different Translation Text

Checks whether identical source text segments have been translated differently.

Segment Count

Checks whether the number of segments in the source and target paragraphs are identical and reports an error if this is not the case.
