Dear all,

Can I tell Trados to save a segment in the TM together with the current date, when I have just accepted it unchanged as a 100% match? I have a situation here, where I have to see at what date a 100% match has been used/inserted unchanged.

Presently I have to rightclick the segment in the WG pane, select Edit and Save in order to assign the current date and time to it.

Thanks!
Lutz

Field usage not an option? Sep 13, 2010

Studio stores the usage date and counter - you however need the mouse to get this information show. When you mouse over this area



you will see it.

Otherwise set a field for the current date.

Dear Jerzy,

I found a solution or at least a workaround in WB. When you just accept a 100% match, WB will not update the segment in its TM. But when you login with a different user name or use the Project/Filter Settings, e.g. to set another Status, things look different.

Now Trados will save the used segment with the new ID or status (provided under Translation Memory Options you've selected Updating attribute and text fields>Used translation units>Update). Using a status, you can even set a Penalty for Attribute and text field differences, in order to make Trados stop, if a 100% match has a different status.

Cheers,
Lutz
