In MS Word: Alt + S, G May 3, 2006

(and in the TagEditor: Alt+ B, G (good muscle exercise for your left hand forefinger & thumb))

is what I use


Next to that, you might find especially Jerzy's explanation of man-made shortcuts very useful:

Depending on which shortcuts are already in use by Word, you can make up your own shortcut cockpit which could make you nearly such a high-flier as the one in your man-made moon.


Overview of the shortcuts I (Henk, Dutch version of MS Word) use to enlighten working in Trados

Alt +......Operation
__________________________________
Z..............Open segment
A..............Set/Close Next Open/Get
Q..............Close
E..............Copy Source
R..............Restore Source
S, G.........Get translation
F..............Copy front part of source segment
J...............Copy end part of source segment

Success!

Look at drop-down menu May 3, 2006

Hi Rahi,

In MS Word there should be a 'Trados' heading for a drop-down menu, which will tell you all the set shortcuts (although you can change these to suit you).

Also, it might depend on the version of Trados you are using - where I used to work, I used a different shortcut for 'Set/Close Next Open/Get' to the one that my freelance version of Trados has, for example (this requires a 'Num' key which I don't have on my laptop!!).

Regards,

Nicola.

Quite confused May 4, 2006

I'm quite confused as there isn't any shortcut given for that "get translation" command in the drop down menu in Word. Other commands do have shortcusts but not this one.
I tried the shortcuts suggested by others above as well but they didn't work either....don't know what to do. Trados Freelance 6.5

You can assign a shortcut yourself; this was discussed a few times already - search the forum for "assign shortcut".

Best regards,
Ralf
