Dear all,

I have read something on this subject in this forum before, but I cannot seem to find the post.

I have translated documents with a large TM and about half of the segments 100% matches. Now I want to proofread, but only my own translations of course (furthermore, I was told not to touch the 100% matches). Is there any easy and quick way of doing this? (I don't have the time to browse all the segments)

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Silvy.

Analyse the transalation against the original TM Jan 17, 2006

and use "Export Unknown Segments" (99% or lower match value) as rtf.

Then run fuzzy automatic translation on the the resulting rtf using the updated TM.

This procedure should give you a rtf in which the original 100% matches are not icnluded.

...and don't forget, when you're finished Jan 17, 2006

... to run the original file through the updated TM to get the 100% fúzzies back into the picture.

I even translate the export first Jan 17, 2006

You can still do as Antonin told, take the original tm and the untranslated files and analyse an export the unknown segments.
I usually translate this export, proofread, ran through the whole thing before I go to the original files, which I translate with the fuzzy-funktion. This is faster, as I have never to look at the segments which don't need to be translated and for which I'm not paid.
