Hi everyone,

I have recently started using SDL Trados 2014, watching a tutorial about how to use it, I have come to discover we could use an Autosuggestion dictionary to make our work more easy.
I have then downloaded an EU autosuggested dictionary but, i really don't know how to use the files I have downloaded so that the suggestions can be viewed on my software during translation.

Add it to your language pair Jun 30, 2015

First you would need to add it to your language pair, by doing one (or both) of these:

To add your AS Dictionary to be available for all future projects go to File - Options – Language Pairs – (Choose Your Specific Language Pair) – AutoSuggest Dictionaries – Add

To add your AS Dictionary to an active project go to Project Settings – Language Pairs – (Your Specific Language Pair) – AutoSuggest Dictionaries – Add

Then make sure AutoSuggest is enabled by going to File - Options - AutoSuggest. On the right-hand pane, check Enable AutoSuggest and in the bottom box, check AutoSuggest Dictionaries, and that's it!
