Hello! I have a problem with transforming fuzzy matches into 100% matches in translation strings.
Namely, when I have translated a translation string with fuzzy match, the match percentage indicated before the string is unchanged (75% or so), but in the concordance search I have a 100% or CM match. How can I get such a percentage (100% or CM) on the translation string too?

Thank you for your help

It is the original fuzzy match value not the current one Oct 29, 2014

Hi Guido,

The fuzzy match value that you have (say 75%) is the original value when you pre-translated the file and not the current match. As you say the concordance search will pop up the current match value (100% or CM). As far as I know you cannot change that original fuzzy match value. But in the translation window you should have the white tick in the circle with the green background in the column between the source and target columns, which is an indication that you now have a 100% match in your TM.

Ben
