Hi there!

I'm using Trados 2011. The thing is, I want to translate automatically one file for my girlfriend using Machine Translation from the BeGlobalCommunity, I don't care if it's a low quality translation. I just want to her to read the translated document with all the correct structure the original has (colours, fonts, etc.).
I know that in memoQ there's the pretranslate function in order to do that. I just don't know how to do this in Trados 2011! By the way, I don't own memoQ anymore.

Thanks in advance,

Martín

Thank goodness... Apr 14, 2013

... I'm not sure I could offer any advice here if you still owned a copy of memoQ

To pretranslate with an MT engine you just do two things.. First make sure you have set the option to use MT when there is no match:


Then just open the file, save it to activate the batch tasks, and then run the pre-translate batch task.
