How to make Complete Matches automatically adopt TM changes
Thread poster: alex_schoeber82

May 20, 2014

Hi there - I have a small problem. When I work with several files the complete matches are filled in automatically (which is good of course), but when I edit the translation in the original segment, the changes are not being taken over for the matches because their status is CM Translated.
It's much better with repetitions in one and the same file where repetitions are filled in automatically, but these segments only get a Draft status. So whenever I edit the translation in the original segment, the changes are being adopted by the matching segments automatically.

So my question is - how can I setup Trados in a way that it will attribute only the Draft status for matches when I work with multiple files? I hope u guys get what I'm trying to say...:-)

Thanks for help!!

Ok - so now I found out that when I open the pretranslation batch process I can choose to not confirm CMs. However even though complete matches are not confirmed these segments will not automatically adopt changes in the TM that I implement in the original translation segment.......:-/
