I just bought the software. How can I use autosuggest? Environment English-Japanese. Right now no suggested words appear while I translate.

Thank you Emma for your comment. Does this mean that I cannot use Autosuggest funtion if I don't have enough units? Isn't there any default autosuggest?

Yes and no Oct 22, 2010

Yes you can use the autosuggest function because it has 3 sources. So if you, say, have a termbase, you can use that.

No, you cannot create an autosuggest dict without having 25000 units. You can merge several TMs to make one as a possible solution or you can download one here

but they may not have your language combination.

AutoSuggest is created from a Translation Memory Oct 22, 2010

Jun

The AutoSuggest dictionary is generated from your translation memory and contains sentence fragments from your TM. There is no such thing as a "default AutoSuggest dictionary", exactly the same as there is no "default translation memory".
If SDL wanted to deliver this with the product, the big question would be: what should these memories contain? I fear, the answer would be very difficult (without even considering the intellectual property issues).

Default autosuggets Oct 22, 2010

Thank you Walter.
I asked the question because when I refered to the Trados instructions.
"How to add an autoSuggest Dictionary file"
The note says: Default AutoSuggest dictionaries are used when you create a project or start a new translation using the Open Document command.

What does this Default Autosuggest mean?
Thank you for your help.

I am sorry to ask very basic questions. What is a termbase? How does it help the autosuggest?
