I'm trying to review some files in Trados, but each time I put my cursor in a segment Trados automatically overwrites the translation (although confirmed) with matches (including fuzzies) from the TM.

How can I stop this happening?


P.S. At the moment I'm using the workaround of disabling the TM. But obviously that's not ideal!

... unchecking the TM options under Tools - Options - Automation. You can switch off the lookup.

But I am very surprised this overwrites a confirmed match. It should simply tell you that you have a different translation in your TM.
