Term in glossary does not highlight in source text!

I am supplied glossary by my client, and have confgured it to my source text using Wirdfast-icon on MSWord toolbar.
Theoretically word/s in source text sentence should highlight if it/they appear in glossary.
In my case it does not happen.
Srangely, when same terminologies (source and target) are manually entered in the same glossary they appear in the source sentence.
Why does this happen? Any clues?

Reorganise? Mar 11, 2008

Have you tried reorganising your glossary by pressing the button in the Wordfast set-up menu? That sometimes helps. Also, the words aren't always highlighted if they form part of a longer word (unless you have ticked fuzzy recognition). So, for example, if there's an apostrophe in front of it or an s at the end, they don't always show up.

HTH - otherwise try the Wordfast support group on Yahoo.

Not working Mar 11, 2008

Hi Claire,
thanks for you post but I'm afraid this isn't the trick. I am teaching WF to university students and have to struggle with this "terms-do-not-highlight" issue all the time. While terminology recognition is working like a charm on some computers, it isn't on others. Tried to reorganize and everything but some computers simply refuse to highlight the source terms even if they consist of one single word exactly found in the source segment.

Any other solutions?

Thanks in advance!
