Hi all,

I'm using SDL 2007 on Word 2003 / PC.

When launching the "Translate to fuzzy" command, if ever I switch during the process to another Word doc, the command stops and a "{}" appears at the beginning of the last opened segment... Strange hey?

Mathieu.

You are not supposed to switch documents during TTF Jan 27, 2009

Workbench run macros on the active document. If you switch document, an error will accur.

Also, the TTF take lot of computer resources. If you let it work for long period, Word will run out of memory and an error will accur.

If you want to stop the "Translate to fuzzy" operation, click the Workbench button in the taskbar.

For auto-translation, better use the Tools -> Translate option in Workbench. Then, when you work on the document, use the "Open Next no 100%/Get" and "Set Close Next no 100% Open Get" commands to skip the 100% segments.

Maybe in other cases Jan 28, 2009

The thing is that I'm translating a 300-page doc, and that the TTF only applies to a 10-page table within this doc. I'm not sur in this case the "Translate" function would be faster. Moreover I'm not sure of the quality of the TM I'm using, while I'm sure that what's in the table has a proper translation in the TM (it is references to section titles previously translated by myself).

But otherwise the "Translate" function is much more efficient, you're right (especially in the case of tables, that take hours to get translated through the TTF function).

Mathieu.
