Hi, I have found when aligning files in Trados 2014 that everything is set at 99%; I have to go through and confirm it all (it is aligned fine).

I'm talking about very straightforward documents, using the minimum alignment quality value (which is what I gather is right for files that have a simple segment-to-segment match).

I've played around with the settings but can't see how to persuade it to go as far as 100% and confirming them.

Any hints, please? Thanks!

Change segment status Apr 9, 2014

Hi Sian,

Here's what I know that works in Trados 2011: Select all the segments you need, then right click and expand the "Change segment status" menu and choose "Translated".

Would that do the job?

Thanks - that sounds like a reasonable workaround (still hope for a solution) Apr 9, 2014

Hi Jiří - thanks for this. I'm sure I can do the same thing in 2014 and it's a nice workaround solution, definitely.

I am still hoping one of our friendly Trados Support guys will be able to point me at a way to make this happen automatically, thoughicon_smile.gif

The default settings apply a 1% penalty Apr 9, 2014

Hi Sian,

Just change the defaults in File -> Options -> Language Pairs -> All Language Pairs -> Translation Memory & Automated Translation -> Penalties to zero.

Then you’ll always get 100%. The reason the default has a penalty is because at the moment you have no chance to edit the alignment, so you don't really want a 100% match on everything from the alignment.

SP1, due soon, has an alignment editor so you can correct the alignment before updating the results to a Translation Memory.

Regards

Paul

That is the BEST news! Apr 9, 2014

Hi, Paul - thanks for the tip on penalties (I have never touched them, I shall investigate that functionality further now).

That is simply the BEST news about SP1 providing an alignment interface! I quite understand the caution on setting the penalty to ensure 99% given there is no way to validate the alignment at the moment (but it's nice to know there's a way to force it to 100% if I feel secure about it).

I know you can't give fixed dates (far too dangerous with software projects!), but is 'due soon' probably weeks or months, do you know? Any other goodies in it worth mentioning, by way of additional functionality or major fixes?

Thanks!

Best news... Apr 9, 2014

... and there is more news! But I can’t share this with you yet. Due soon means this month... exactly when I’m not sure.

Regards

Paul
