Hi,

Is there any way to make Term Recognition display the same word that exists in two termbases without changing the `minimum match value`?

I don't want to change minimum match value because it is handy in picking up the terms from the source

I have variations of terms, sometimes one or two letters or capitalized/small caps versions, but term recognition only shows the result for the main termbase, does not display results from other termbases.

Thank you
Kind regards

Hakan

Hi Hakan,

Are both your termbases enabled? - checked (green) under Project Settings -> Termbases. Normally, in both Studio 2009 and 11, your Term Recognition pane should display the terms from both of them and even showing which termbase they come from (name of termbase displayed next to the source term).

HTH,

Bernard

Hi Bernard,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes. Both are enabled. But, by design, one has to be the default in which one could add new terms along with translation.

Termbase 1
connector
relays

Termbase 2
Connectors
circuits

In below terms
- circuits and relay are displayed normally
- when there is connector or connect* comes up in the source, "connector" is displayed from Termbase 1 (because it is default) and "Connectors" from Termbase 2 is ignored.

I prefer to have all terms to be listed regardless, without changing minimum match value. If I set minimum match value to 100%, it should show both probably.

Not sure if this is clear enough.

Thank you

Hakan

p.s. I have not migrated to 2011 yet. Due in December hopefully. May be this issue is resolved there.

Hi again,

My Search settings are as follows and it works perfectly:

Minimum match value = 70%
Search depth = 200
Search Order = Search all termbases in parallel and group results by term

No, 100% means an exact match, you should rather lower the threshold.

Yep, it works like that.
I'm sure I posted an info about it here or on TW_users.

I don't know.
As I translate SDLXLIFF files in DVX2, I don't follow closely the Multiterm development.

Cheers
GG
