I am translating a pre-translated text using SDL Trados 2007. I know I can use the key combination ctrl alt + in order to open the next no 100% sentence, I've tried to use it but it doesn'work..When I push ctrl alt + I simply go to the next sentence (like with the key combination ctrl +). Any suggestion?

Concordance Mar 2, 2011

This could be due to the Concordance window being open. It doesn't seem to make sense, but it is a common cause of that.

alternative shortcuts Mar 2, 2011

Ctr+Alt+N to go to the next segment

Ctr+Alt+Z to translate to fuzzy.

I had the same problem when I upgraded from MS Office 2003 to MS Office 2007. I now use Office 2007 + Trados 2007 and use the shortcuts above.

better explanation Mar 2, 2011

I'm afraid I didn't describe my problem very well ...The other shortcut keys (alt +, alt *, alt end, alt ins, alt del, etcetera) all work. I would like to skip all 100% matches and go directly to the next segment which is a fuzzy match or a no match. With another computer I used to push "ctrl alt +" to do that (this is only possible when a text has been pre-translated), but with my new computer it doesn't work. May the problem be caused by the new operating system (Windows 7)? II can't find any reason.

Alternative to Ctrl Alt + Mar 7, 2011

I also was facing the same problem, but not on a notebook. A way to shunt it, avoiding to use the mouse, is using another key combination with the menu shortcuts:

Alt B (then, release Alt key and press...) 0 (that is zero)
