Segments repeated in a document are labelled as repetitions. The first instance of a repetition is identified with a heavy arrow Repetition_heavy.pngand subsequent repetitions with a lighter arrow Repetition_light.png.

Segments with Plural form are not considered repetitions.

If the Set segment status to confirmed for Repetitions is enabled, the translation of a repeated segment is automatically propagated to all subsequent repetitions. When a linguist confirms a segment that is repeated later in the document, all repetitions of that segment are confirmed.

Repetition Exception

Clicking on the repetition icon crosses out the arrow Crossed_arrow.png to indicate an exception from the repetition. This allows the instance to have a different translation.

Disabling Auto-propagation of Repetitions

To disable/enable the auto-propagation of repetitions, follow these steps:

  1. From the Setup Setup_gear.png page, scroll down to the Project Settings section and click on Pre-translation.

    The Pre-translation page opens.


    From the Edit Project page, open the Pre-translation menu.

  2. Click the radio button for Auto-propagate repetitions.

  3. Click Save.

    Settings are saved.

Unless option is disabled by a Project Manager, Linguists can disable/enable the auto-propagation of repetitions in the CAT pane preferences.
