Hello,
Does anybody know why the fuzzy threshold setting may be "stuck"? I keep trying to change it but it won't, it is always at 75; and I definitely need it lower.
I've tried reorganising the TM and it won't help.
What am I missing here?
Thank you for any help!!

This way... Feb 8, 2007

Hi Angela,

Go to Setup>General>Fuzzy threshold...click on this last and change the value from 75 to what you like. Values can range from 50-99%. Hope it helps.

Thank you Feb 8, 2007

You know what I was trying to do? I was trying to set it to 45. That's why it wouldn't work.
But really... I am convinced that I have done it before (40 or 45) and it was working then... Is it possible? Is it Trados? Am I just too tired and I'm going crazy?
Thank you...

You can try adding this command to the Pandora's Box. I am quoting from the manual and it says...

"With this command, Wordfast will propose TUs with a match percentage (analogy rate) below the fuzzy threshold, but equal to or above 50."

I haven't tried it but I hope it will work. Sorry, but I haven't found a way to set it below 50.
