I have a Word-file, which I pretranslated with Trados. Trados has put into each target segment the text of the source segment. Now when I want Wordfast to search the TM for a match I first have to empty the target and then press arrow left. After that Wf jumps to the prior segment, and after that it finds displays the segment found in the TM. Is there any switch to force Wf to search the TM when getting a new segment?

Regards
Heinrich

Dear Heinrich,

This is the shortcut for copying from TM. As far as I know, it overwrites what you already have in the target field if you have a 100% match in the TM.

I hope this helps,
Dan

Use a PB command Mar 1, 2006

Enable ShowBetterMatch, WriteBetterMatch or DiscreteBetterMatch in Pandora's box.

From the manual:

When revising a segmented, bilingual document (translated with TM1), using another TM (such as TM2), this can be useful to receive propositions from TM2, if they are rated higher than the ones originally proposed by TM1. If a better match exists, it will be displayed above the segment (Shift+Alt+Insert will copy TM2's proposition to the target segment).

WriteBetterMatch: same as ShowBetterMatch, but the better match will directly replace the existing target segment with the better proposition. The analogy rate is also replaced with the new analogy rate.

DiscreteBetterMatch: same as WriteBetterMatch, but the existing analogy rate will not be replaced with the new analogy rate.

Regards,
Gerard
