Back again, Ralf, following your help on importing of yesterday, sorry!

When I use the TM, when I open a segment, the Italian is repeated in the target segment as in the source segment.

Concordance works fine, though.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Is that really a problem? Apr 2, 2006

Hi Mary Rose,

Sometimes that's not a problem, particularly when you have to copy figures or proper names. However, if it bugs you, I reckon you can get rid of it this way:

-In Trados WorkBench, go to Options
-Click "Translation memory options"
-Under the "General" tab, you'll see a box named "Copy source on no match". (Since you're getting the original segments, this should be selected.)
-Deselect it.
-Click OK

And that should do.

HTH,
Jerónimo


Re-reading your tread I'm not sure you had the problem I explained how to solve? Sorry if I didn't get it

Unfortunately it didn't work Apr 2, 2006

Thanks Jéronimo, it was a good thought, but in fact "Copy source on no match" hadn't been selected. I tried selecting and deselecting, but that didn't work either.

Thanks for your help anyway.

And yes, it really does bug me!

I may sound stupid, but Apr 3, 2006

is your file pretranslated and already segmented?

Have you asked in the Yahoo group? Apr 4, 2006

Hi Mary Rose,

I'm sorry that you still have that problem.

I can't think of another possible solution, but probably somebody in the Trados Yahoo group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TW_users/) has a good idea. You need to sign in, but it's free and quick.

Good luck,
Jero
