Hello,

I am translating a document with a TM the client gave me.
I don´t know if I did the right settings in the TM, or not, because there is something I don´t understand:
The segments translated by me are saved in the TM because If I get back to segments I arleady translated, my translation appears. But then, when I open a new segment, and a sentence to be translated is quite similar to a sentence I translated, nothing appears in the TM.
I thought the TM could find a fuzzy match?
I don´t know if I made myself clear?
Thank you

Match value Apr 17, 2008

It sounds like your minimum match value is set too high.

Go to Options > TM Options > Minimum match value.

If this setting is too high, you may hardly get any partial matches. I prefer a value of 50%, if lower, you might get too much "crap", if higher you might not get many of the matches that could be useful.

You've posted under 'Regional Conference - France in the 'Translation - Art & business Forum'.

You should post under Trados Support. Of course, you could also do a forum search.
