my Trados find an 100% match in the document but still, it does not insert the text into the translation segment.
What is going on here?

One guess... Nov 6, 2007

If your multiple translation penalty is set to 0%, then you can sometimes have multiple 100 % matches appearing for a segment. In this case, I think WB does not insert any of those, as you have to make a choice btw them.

maybe you pretranslated the file segmenting everything? In that case, even if trados finds out a 100% match (which will be a sentence you translated and added shortly in the TM), it sill keep with the original translation, even if it was a copy of the source segment. All you have to do is press Shif+Tab+Insert to retrieve the new (and correct) translation.

Hope it helps!

Every time? Nov 6, 2007


This usually (maybe even every time, I didn't really check) happens to me, too, but only for the very first 100% segment in a given text. I click on "paste translation" (or whatever it is called in English, I'm using the German version), the translation is entered, and subsequently all 100% matches are automatically translated.
