Dear SDL,

I have made some search tests inside a few TMs i have (from the Translation Memory tab) and it appears that Studio isn't able to detect full strings of text during searches.

For example, if i am 100% sure a given string/segment is present inside the TM and i make a full string search, i'll get 0 results, but if i insert just the first two words (and no punctuation) of the same segment then it pops up.

Real example:
English: Exhaust gas temperature sensor
Italian: Sensore di temperatura gas di scarico

Search nr1: Exhaust gas temperature sensor

Italian result: 0

Search nr2: Exhaust gas
Italian result1: Exhaust gas temperature sensor
Italian result2: Exhaust gas control valve

I find this very limiting in scenarios where i have to perform deep searches for terminology and is extremely time stealing. Is this a bug or part of the design of the software?

Thanks in advance

Can't repro Nov 21, 2013

Hello Enrico,

I can't reproduce this at all. I tested several full text searches and find them all. I'm not even sure what to suggest as you must be looking in the right place to even find the second search.

Can I see your TM so I can test this on the same data set as you?
