Is there already something like intra-segment consistency (internal consistency) possible?
Segment 1: AAA = TAAA
Segment 2: AAA BBB = TAAABBB
Segment 3: AAACCC = TAAA CCC
Segment 4: AAA xyz AAA BBB abc AAACC = TAAA hij TAAABBB klm TAAA CCC
In plain language:
For source and target segments pairs where one side only contains one word (no spaces), make sure that the translation entered here, is being used in all other segments.
Actually, inter-segment consistency, I guess?
It is still morning and I did not have my 2nd coffee yet, but isn't this simply to handle with TB or fragments consistency?
Just asking …
In times of heavy MT-assisted translating, this feature may well evolve to a crucial quality factor, since MT systems like DeepL until now have no way to guarantee inter-segment terminological consistency.
This is where we professional translators come in :).
So, an integration with the MT engines would be nice. Kind of advanced teaming of auto-assembling with MT.
Your AAA, BBB, CCC examples are a bit unclear to me but you should have the corresponding fragments as fragment matches in your translation memory to be able to perform the consistency check.

It might work for segments too but you seem to be nesting segments within fragments (or the other way around). It may not work for fragments nested in, or being a part of, other fragments.
Confirming this QA action works as expected when the TM used for this check is set as a fragments-only memory (termbase) and not as a segments memory as well.
Good to know!
Me too. Now I understand.
New test of QA Fragments consistency. It is important that:
I converted the TM for Fragments to a glossary for QA and duh, the same result: linke Seite and obere Seite are not reported as inconsistent.
Please check your option in Edit > Prefrences > QA tab > Terms consistency check: Prefix/Exact matching.
> The TM should not be set to Segments, only to Fragments (and Fragments consistency of course).
As you start the "Terms consistency check" action, the pop-up dialog appears with the TMs listed, regardless of their type (for Segments or Fragments). Just tick/untick the TMs for this QA check. In certain system look and feels (e.g GTK 3 in Linux), the unchecked/unticked state is blank.
