I am using several TMs when concordance. I'm wondering how I can tell which TM has the translation. In the Translation Results tab, I can see the TM name that translation belongs to. But not in Concordance Search tab...

probably the only way... Apr 16, 2014

... is to add a field for your TM so you update your TUs with the TM name as you work. If you do this then you'll see the field values in all results and be able to identify which TM it is immediately without clicking on it for both TM lookup and concordance.

The obvious drawback of course is if you are updating multiple TMs at the same time. So in this scenario you would have to have different field names on each TM in addition to the field values so you could select a different update value for each one. But if you only update one TM at a time then this would be fairly simple to manage.

It would be a neat enhancement to just show the TM name against each result in both views by default.

... but not aggressively. We do have a completely new version of this as part of a bigger project we are implementing this year. So keep using it and the ideas you create will be brought over to the new one.

The old one was developed by us and needs a lot of work to deliver the functionality we want from it so it's a more useful, and collaborative environment between you and us. The new one provides us with what we want and more.

There will be a lot of new things popping up over the course of this year that relate to community.

Regards

Paul
