Target segment language

Trados 7, Windows XP, Word 2003.

Whenever I work in Word with Trados I have to change the target segment language for almost all the segments. I open segment and the language in target window is the same as source. It kind of takes a lot of time and I could spend it differently.
I know it must be quite easy to fix this, but I have no idea how. Could somebody point me to the right direction (using very simple instructions, pls).

Thanks in advance,
Burrell

when you close the segment it changes the language to t arget automatically Dec 2, 2005

just try it out.

Whilst you are typing it may be source, but when you close it changes to target - or at least mine does!

You are right Dec 2, 2005

I never though of it before.
However the problem is the spellcheck - you can only see the spelling mistakes once the segment is closed.

Uncheck Identify languages automatically Dec 2, 2005

Hi Burrell,

I have word 2000, but try this, go to tools-languages-set languages (I think, I don't have the English version)and then uncheck the box
at the bottom that says "Identify languages automatically".
This must be a bug with Trados, but I find that then it DOES actually identify languages correctly.

HIH
