G'day everyone

I managed to create a TM in SDLX and now I want to replace all segments in the ITD file with whatever is in the TM. But... the SDL Edit program has no visible links or buttons that would normally mean things like "go to next segment" or "insert translation from TM", etc, as far as I can see. It's a mystery program. So, my question to you: how can I move from one segment to the next in such a way that the TM match gets inserted? What is the secret shortcut for that?

Thanks
Samuel

SDLX Jul 15, 2013

Hi Samuel,
To apply the TM to the SDLX edit file, make sure the TM is loaded (menu item "Translation Memory" -> "Open") and then apply the TM (menu item "Translation Memory" -> "Apply"). You can set a value there for fuzzy matches.

Once you start translating and confirm each segment with enter, any 100% match will automatically be applied to the subsequent segments.

If you highlight a part of a segment or a full segment and click on F7, it will show you if that segment or that word has been translated before and is in the TM.

I find SDLX very easy and it is actually my preferred tool. Lmk if you need any help.

Kathi

Fantastic, this worked, thanks. I had to set the fuzzy percentage to 99%, but it worked fine, thanks.

I can't get my head around format painting, which is why I take the TTX route.
