hi, something strange happens when i use wordfast. It seems like the apps itself is unable to translate/recognize segments that have already been translated. just by way of examples.. if the phrase that has been translated is quite similar to the phrase that it's needed to be translated, there are no problems...


My cat is black-> Il mio gatto è nero
My cat is white-> Il mio gatto è (bianco)

but if the segments are not next to each other, even if there's only a phrase between them, the match doesn't work


My cat is black -> il mio gatto è nero
My cat is white-> ???

as you can see in this way wordfast doesn't recognize the match, but now i'm wondering why this happens.

Is there anyone who can help me please?

I solved my problem... Oct 4, 2007

I solved my problem! To try reorganising the TM was one of the first thing i've done, anyway the problem was caused by the fact that i've wrongly saved

Thanks anyway for your help
