==='''Orphan segments'''===
To compare the translation segment before and after editing, the system needs to find identical source text, and then compare its translations.
Orphan segments appear when there is a difference in a source in the files you are comparing. E.g. the editor can change the segmentation, tags or even the source text in the file,
and in the result, the system won't be able to find identical source segments to compare the translations. In such cases, it gives out orphans to show the segments:
