  [[AZ  For technical documents the use of standard 'stock' phrases are very often desirable both from th point of view of consistency, but also for increasing the amount of leveraged memory that can be located in TM systems. Is is desirable to provide technical authors with a facility to easily access and reuse previously authored or stock phrases.]]
  
  [[CL  Could you give an example, how the ITS tag set or the guidelines could facilitate this? The usage scenarios from my understanding describe how our deliverables could/should be used in order to better accomodate localization-related processes. Aside concerning the relationship between stock phrases and memories: Isn't it the case that the number of source occurrances is almost irrelevant once you have a translation in the memory? Thus, the argument for stock phrases looses some weight.]]
+ 
+ [[AZ The ITS tag set could include an identifier to state that this is a 'stock' phrase and associate an identifier with the text. I do not understand the issue with the number of source occurrences. We are dealing here with trying to encourage authors to re-use existing sentences for which there will be translations. The number of times that such a phrase is used is not relevant. What is important is that exactly the same text is reused.]]
