When I am translating I insert the target term from the termbase, however I am getting an error saying that the "Target segment does not contain the translated term for..."

The subsecuente segment contain the same term and the terminology verifier is working fine, that is to say, it is never detecting a false error as in the previous segment.

In Project Configuration -> Terminology Verifier -> Verification Settings:
- The box "Check for possible non-usage of target terms" is checked
- And the Minimum match value = 100%

producthelp.sdl.com says:
Check for possible non-usage of the target terms: Select this to check source segments are for known terms. Where a term is found, the corresponding target segment is examined to ensure that the correct term translation (from the termbase) has been used)
Minimum match value: This value expresses the minimum acceptable degree of similarity between the terminology in the source segment and the matching terminology found in MultiTerm using fuzzy match search techniques. The higher the value, the more similar the terms must be.

I already tried:

1) Delete the entry from the termbase, run the Terminology Verifier and get no error (off course!)
Then I insert the term again into de the termbase from the same source and target segments and I get the error again

2) I cut and pasted the target term form the subsecuente segment, and I still get the same error

3) I tried with Minimum match value = 70%, 50%, 30%, etc..., and I still get the same error

Thanks in advance for your help!
