Good afternoon to everybody,

I am working on a Word file and I don't know what I've done but the unclean files clean automatically.
Indeed, the translation of a segment appears on the unclean file as soon as I go the next segment.

Have this already occured to someone or does someone know what it is due to?

Thanking you in advance for your help!

Have a nice evening,

Céline.

100% Match? Jun 22, 2009

If the TM you are using has an existing unit that matches the new segment, of course, that unit will display either an exact match (green background) or a partial match, depending on concordance rules established.

Is this what you are experiencing? I guess you know how the TM works but this is the only situation I can think of where the target segment gets filled. There is no way to automatically "clean" a document. I mean, it is a separate function that you must invoke with the document closed.

Do you mean the source text disappears? Jun 22, 2009

Press „everything visible” (Carriage return) button in the upper line. Does it help?

I am glad someone understood your situation Jun 22, 2009

It is still fuzzy to me. I thought you were a newbie to TRADOS.

Where do I find that button? Jun 25, 2009

@ Istvan and Céline
"Press „everything visible” (Carriage return) button in the upper line. Does it help?"

Hi Istvan and Céline, I just experienced the same problem. Suddenly this morning all my bilingual files only show the translated German text and no longer the English original. (Must be something in the airicon_wink.gif)

Could you tell me where I press this *„everything visible” (Carriage return) button*?
Which upper line are we talking about, Word or Workbench? I am not as lucky as Cèline and couldn't figure it out.

Would you once more explain it in steps to me?

Thank you,

Hildegard
