I saw something strange in SDL TRADOS.

If I clic on the icon "translates" (tool bar, above, on the right), OR "CTRL + ENTER", the software adds the segment into the Memory Translation.

But, when I select a (cible) segment, then make a right click mouse, and "modify status, choose "translated", OR the same thing in a source segment ", SDL TRADOS does not add the translation in the Memory Translation (the right TM languages pair is open).

Please, could you tell me why? Is it normal ?


Best regards.

Yes, this is how it should work. Translation status is to show you or a project manager/reviewer that a particular segment has been confirmed in that file as correct. It doesn't mean the segment has been sent to your TM. that's why it's usual to click "ctrl+Enter" to move to the next segment because that's how the segment gets saved in your TM.
However, if you have changed the status of several or all segments by using a right mouse click, simply run batch tasks "update project/main translation memories" to save these segments to the TM.

Dear Mrs Goldsmith,

Thank you so much for your answer.
It's a little thing, but that's not clear in the help file.

Have a good day!
