Hi

Even though I have a 100% match in my TM, Tag Editor does not offer this automatically on the Target text translation bar. Is because of tags problem?

For example:
The source is
Preparation for Use

With using Concordance, the text can be shown, but how can I make Tag Editor to do that?

Kindly advise.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Fiona

This could be due to differences in tags in the source and the target, or perhaps penalties.

I suggest you lower the "Minimum match value" in Options-Translation Memory Options-General. Try with a value as low as 50%, if it works you can try to increase it until you find a value that works for you (I normally use a value between 65-80% depending on the TM).

You can also adjust the penalties in Options-Translation Memory Options-Penalties.

Minimum match value = 35% Aug 4, 2008

Thanks Åsa Campbell.

I have adjusted the "Minimum match value" to 35%, but still can not get it.

May i know what is the usage of penalties?
