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

(the minimum match value in the options of my TM is at 50%)

recognition is case sensitive Apr 18, 2008

Is there a difference in capitalization? If you have a sentence in the TM that's all in lower case, or with regular captialization, Trados won't recognise the same sentence if it's all in capitals.

Lower fuzzy threshold Apr 20, 2008

Hi Marion,
you can lower the fuzzy recognition threshold in the TM settings. Just browse the menus and you'll find it.
