Memsource can calculate net rates for translation memories, machine translation, and non-translatables (NT).
Translation memory net rate schemes have four categories:
A segment repeated in a document.
A segment which matches a segment already stored in the translation memory, including its context; the preceding and following segments or context keys match.
A segment which matches a segment already stored in the translation memory.
A segment which partially matches a segment already stored in the translation memory. Fuzzy matches can range from 99% down to zero. Fuzzy matches below a 75% match rate are considered new words and are newly translated.
Non-translatable net rate schemes have three categories:
A segment identified as content that is unlikely requiring translation but may require checking by a translator.
A segment identified as content that probably does not require translation, but should be checked by a translator.
For default analysis, NTs fall only into one of the categories mentioned above. If post-edited, they can fall into fuzzy ranges in terms of Post-editing analysis.
Memsource measures machine translation quality by comparing at a segment level a machine translation and the final post-edited version of that translation. The match score is calculated the same way as translation memory matches.
After opening a post-editing analysis, select a net rate scheme and the pages/words/characters are recalculated. The results are displayed in the Net Rate line.
Net rates are independent of financial information. The number of units for translation (pages, words, or characters) decreases based on the selected net rate scheme.
Only Project Managers and Admins can setup Net Rate Schemes.
To set up a Net Rate Scheme, follow these steps:
How a net rate scheme can be applied to TM matches.
Net Rate Scheme settings:
0% for 101% TM match
10% for 100% TM match
100% for less then 50% TM match
Analyzed job has these matches:
15 words in 101% TM match
10 words in 100% TM match
5 words in less then 50% TM match
The calculation of number of word and the Net Rate percentage: 15 * 0 + 10 * 0.1 + 5 * 1 = 6
