Hello,
I´m using trados 2007 and when working with TagEditor, the program doesn´t show me segments I´ve previously translated.
They appear as translated in the TM, but tageditor doesn´t bring them up when opening a segment (it only copies again the original text, not showing the translation), therefore I have to re-translate or copy/paste the already existing translation.
I keep saving the document, but still not working.
Any idea of what the problem may be? Any help will be much appreciated, as I have about 3k repetitions which I seem to have to retype every time!!
Thanks a lot!!

Probably presegmented TTX file Jun 3, 2012

My guess is that you received a TTX file that your 'helpful' client pretranslated with the TM. If you have Trados Studio, you can use it to delete the translations, export the TTX and start again (using your TM and the existing translations).

If you don't, you can use the 'Export unknown segments' feature under Analyse in Translator's Workbench. Select the RTF format, translate that file (you may lose some context for your segments in the RTF file, so refer to the TTX). After you're done, use Translate in Translators' Workbench and translate the TTX file at 100%. Check for untranslated segments afterwards (they are possible due to segmentation differences).

Alternatively, you don't have to copy and paste, but you can use the Get command (Alt + Insert). Still, it is more time consuming and error prone.

Hope that helps.
Adam

Thank you so much, Adam!!

Yes, I think the client DID pretranslate the ttx file.
First I´ll ask the "helpful" client to send me the proper file and I´ll use the existing TM for the whole file, and if that´s not possible, then I´ll try your options.

Thanks again!!

Kindest regards,

Mariluz
