This is a very basic question from a Trados rookie. Instead of the blue source and yellow target fields, I get this in front of the segment to translate -{}-, and nowhere to translate it. Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? I've created a tm and have workbench running. Thanks for your help.

Curly brackets syndrome Nov 18, 2003

Hi Raquel,
Search the TW_users archives for "curly brackets"; you'll find quite a few entries.

The problem is often a corrupt termbase - try deactivating term recognition. If the problem no longer occurs, export and recreate your termbase. (Sometimes just re-creating the fuzzy index does the trick...)

I'm moving this to CAT Tool Tech Support...

HTH, Ralf

Problem not yet solved... Nov 18, 2003

Just to be on the safe side: you do realise that this was only the diagnostics part... I guess you will want to use term recognition again.

The first thing to try is whether simply re-creating the fuzzy index (use Ctrl-Z) provides a remedy. If that doesn't help, carry out a full export of your termbase (a prefab export definition is available in the TT folder of your Trados installation folders (the file is called backup.mdx). Create a new termbase and re-import all entries.

HTH, Ralf
