Hi,
I am translating a xls file with Trados Studio 2011.

The differences between the new fragment to be translated and existing partial match segments in memory (which used to appear in blue when extra word and crossed red when not present, between new and existing in memory), do not appear anymore (in the top window showing the fragment to be translated and possible translations).

I think this is the case since I deleted 3 xml files as per some instructions I found on this forum to fix a bug (which stopped me from saving the target file the other day). This deletion reset my settings and fixed the bug.

I check in tools - options - translation results window, and the search result display mode is "show original translation unit"with both difference options checked (show document source segment differences and show TM source segment differences.

Could you please tell me how can I make the translation window show the differences again?

Thanks,
Regards,
Corinne

Check in the View menu Oct 22, 2013

I'm not currently in front Studio so I can't give exact instructions, but if I recall correctly the option that you are looking for is in the View menu (the one at the top, part of the File, Edit...etc. menu). Selecting the right option from there will add the translation results pane.

Also, it could be that you switched to another tab (at the bottom) in the translation results pane, so worth checking that out as well.

I can see the translation results pane Oct 22, 2013

Hi Shai,
I can see the translation results pane. This is not my problem. Perhaps I was not clear enough in my first post.

The problem is, in the translation results pane, when I have a fuzzy match between a new segment and my TM, the differences between the new fragment and the translation result from the TM are not shown clearly (as in missing words crossed in red and added words in blue, like it is supposed to be normally).

There must be a setting to turn this feature back on that I can't find...

Thanks for trying to help though...
Cheers,
Corinne

Are you also using Machine Translation? Oct 22, 2013

Hi,

If you are then try changing the order of the TM Providers in the Project Settings. If the MT provider is moved to the bottom of your list of providers then the mark up will probably return.

Regards

Paul

Hi Corinne,

You must have changed your Options -> Editor -> Translation Results Window -> Differences Options -> Show check boxes.

HTH,

Bernard

Thanks Paul! Oct 22, 2013

This makes sense too... Now that you are pointing this out... Was trying MT on this repetitive project and I haven't been careful about the order of the TM...

Thank you all for your help.

Kind regards,
Corinne
