Hi Guys.

I've just upgraded to the Studio 2015.

In my previous version (2014), when I used to enable the Google Translate tool, the AT provided for one string would go directly to my target column if there was no better choice in my current TM.
However, in this Studio 2015, the AT are not being automatically sent to the target column. Instead, it is only in the separated window as an option and then I have to apply that.

I have been taking me such a time and it's a bit annoying.
Could you guys please help me to enable that automatic option?

PS: I'm not talking about the "pre-translate" option, in which 100% of the text is automatic translated at once.
I am using the AT string by string.

Probably a result of AutoSuggest 2.0 Jul 1, 2015


When you say that the results appear in a separate window, how does this window look? Do you see the results appearing like AutoSuggest suggestions?
If yes, then this is due to the new AutoSuggest 2.0 feature of Studio 2015. Autosuggest 2.0 now does not only show suggestions from the AutoSuggest dictionary and the termbase, but also from your TMs and from an machine translation provider that you have configured.
This has the advantage that you get more suggestions and instead of entire sentences you get fragments, which in many cases is more useful than the translation of the entire sentence.

If you don^t like this behaviour, you can go to "File - Options - AutoSuggest" and disable the "Machine translation" providers.

I suggest however that you play around with this a bit first to find out what suits you best before you do this. As I mentioned, the new feature is often a better choice than to simply get the entire sentence translated (because often it will prevent rearranging parts of the suggested sentence).
