I purchased not long ago Studio 2011.

I like the TM+Automatic translation functionality but my problem is that my internet connection is really slow, therefore I have to wait like 4 to 5 seconds everytime a suggested translation is searched for.

I'd like to know if it's possible to somehow pretranslate the whole translation at once (even if I have to wait one time for 20 minutes) with the best suggestions, instead of waiting for each cell to be searched for (If there are 2000 cells to translate, I prefer to wait once 20 minutes than 2000 times 5 seconds).

Hoping my question is clear enough, otherwise I'll formulate again,

Hi Antoine,

If you go here:

Tools -> Options -> Language Pairs -> All Language Pairs -> Batch Processing -> Pre-translate Files

Then check the box that says "When no match is found -> Apply automated translation"

If it's an existing project you are doing this for then make this change in Project Settings rather than Tools Options.
