Split and Merge

When you upload a document, Lilt segments the source text with a view toward maximizing machine translation quality. MT quality tends to degrade with sentence length, so Lilt prefers shorter segments. However, the segmenter may make mistakes. You can correct them manually by splitting and merging segments. Note though that merging across paragraph boundaries or hard line breaks is not possible. In that case, the merge icons will not be present in the segment editing tools.

Click the Split Segment button at the right side of a source segment after opening the segment editing tools:

Then you can manually place split markers to divide the segment:

For merging two neighboring segments, simply click on Merge with previous segment or Merge with next segment, if the option is available:
