What is Segment

Need translations? Try Smartcat for free!

A piece of text that a CAT tool handles separately from others. In common translation, a segment is most often identical to a sentence. In software localization, it can be either a sentence or a whole string, even if it includes several sentences. This behavior is often configurable. The process of splitting a piece of content into segments is called parsing.

Example: Text parsed into segments in Smartcat's built-in editor.
