Recognizing plurals in TBs

Hi all!

Does anyone know how to enter terms in a TB so that they are recognized when they appear in plural for instance?
For example, I have "prise de mouvement" in my TB, but now I have a text with "prises de mouvement". Shouldn't the term be proposed on the Translation Results panel anyway?
Isn't there sort of a 'fuzzy recognition' function?

And what if I have "boîte de transfert" and the term appears in my text as "boite de transfert", without "^"?

Do you have the same problem as well?

Thanks a lot

JC

Simple! Feb 23, 2012

(I cannot help with the problem with the special characters. It is best if you contact Kilgray's support for that.)

About plurals, it is simple: you can add an asterisk in the place where the plural can exist. Examples for Spanish:

"rubber band" - "goma elástica" (will only work for the singular forms)

"rubber band*" - "goma* elástica*" (will work for both "rubber band" / "rubber bands" and "goma elástica" / "gomas elásticas" respectively).

I hope this helps!

MemoQ doesn't have fuzzy matching for termbases, which is a pretty painful omission if you ask me. Maybe it will be added eventually.

If I had a translation company I would hire you Tomásicon_smile.gif

I had no clue you can use this sort of "regular expressions". That actually solves the "^" problem as well. I just have to add it as "bo*te de transfert".

Thanks a million
Kilgray should hire you as a MQ consultant
