Hi!

I'm having trouble finding how to get the translation results to show up in the target section of the editor. It's probably something simple, but I sure can't find it!

Help!

Options > Editor > Automation... Jun 12, 2015

... and then "Apply best match after successful lookup"

If you're talking about Studio

Really? Jun 13, 2015

Hi Linda,

That's strange, unless I got your question wrong...

Are you talking about
a) TM results not being displayed at all in the "Translation Results" view, or about
b) TM results being displayed, but not placed in the target segment of the Editor?

- Make sure that "Perform lookup when active segment changes" is ticked (Options > Editor > Automation)
- Make sure that "Minimum match value" is set to a value lower than 100% (Project Settings > Language Pairs > All Language Pairs > Translation Memories and Automated Translations > Search)

I'm using Studio 2104, so the wording of options might be slightly different on your screen, but the functions should definitely be there.

Regards,
Stefan

My settings are all as you suggest, I can see the results in the 'translation results' view, but not in the target segment....

Ugh!

Thanks for trying to help me!

Target segments already populated? Jun 13, 2015

Are the target segments empty or do they contain text already?

Empty! Jun 13, 2015

I can get the translation into the segment by ctrl+T, but that's not how it usually works. I want the result IN the target segment...

I'm lost then Jun 13, 2015

Then I'm lost, I'm afraid. If the target segment is empty and a lookup is performed, the best match (if there is one) should be inserted in the target segment automatically, provided the options above are set correctly.

The empty segments do not happen to be "Confirmed", do they?

Bad memory! Jul 9

Hi Anne!
I can't remember what I did, I think I just started over. I should have come back and written so I would remember! I will do that next time. Good luck!
