Is there any way to exclude false positive under Numeric Mismatch


#1

Example as follow English to Chinese Simplified segment,
English: In October 2015, when the then Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin met with the delegation of members of the US Congress.
Chinese: 2015年10月,时任市长许勤会见美国国会议员代表团时。
Trados Studio does not report this error, but Xbench will, and this will result in a lot of false positive for the News subject translation.
Is there any way to exclude MonthName translation under Numeric Mismatch?

At the moment, it is not possible to exclude these false positives under Numeric Mismatch.

However, if you want to check all Month name translation, the best and most efficient way is to use a checklist.

As “年” means year and “月” means month, you should create one entry for each month.

For instance the following checklist entry detects all segments that contains October of any year from 1000 to 2999 in English but has not been translated correctly into Chinese:

Source term: "<October ([21][0-9]{3}>)=1"
Target term: -"@1年10月"
Powersearch: ON
Search mode: Regular Expression

In the same way, if you want to find all segments that contain January + year but have been translated in the wrong way you would use the following search:

Source term: "<January ([21][0-9]{3}>)=1"
Target term: -"@1年1月"
Powersearch: ON
Search mode: Regular Expression
