I am working on an xlsx file, using Trados.
It enters the source text into the target field whether I ask it to or not.
But when there is a match it continues this process of putting the source text into the target segment, so I have to manually "get translation" each time there is a match.
Since this text has a large number of repetitions this has become something of an incovenience.
Any ideas what could be done?
TIA

Copy source on no match Sep 18, 2010

Depending on your version you have to switch this option off.
Because you do not inform anyone about your Trados version you are now requested to use the help in your program to find out how to do that.

SDL Trados 8. Sep 18, 2010

Thanks for your message.
My version is SDL Trados 8.

I have already tried turning off the option you mention, which is what I meant by saying it copied the source whether I ask it to or not.

The setting is black/white Sep 18, 2010

So if you deslect "Copy source on no match" in Workbench this option is off and Trados will not copy it. This is at least how my SDL Trados 2007 version 8.3.0.863 and all other previous versions behaved.
But maybe you simply have a presegmented text, where the segments are already filled up with source?

presegmented, thats it! Sep 18, 2010

Yes, the client did tell me it was presegmented. I was not familiar with this concept - it was a question of a difficult excel document they had to prep up for me.
So in that case, am I stuck with this situation?
Many thanks for your time.

There is some way of getting rid of that... Sep 18, 2010

But I can't tell at the moment - I would need to google or search this forum.

Should you however wish to try Studio, that would be just one click there...
