So, I recently installer Trados Studio 2015 on Windows 10, and have encountered an EXTREMELY annoying bug that directly affect the translation.

I started noticing that Trados Studio 2015 did not register all my key inputs when writing (I never had this problem in Studio 2014). Often a space would be missing, so I started checking why. Turns out that when you are writing in the target segment, and the auto suggest pops up to suggest a translation for the rest of the sentence, the space is lost if you do not use the suggestion. It does not happen all the time, but often enough for me to notice it only minutes after starting to use Trados Studio 2015. Seems to be some bad coding or something with the way auto suggest works.

Lag Sep 14, 2015

I also notice some "lag" when writing, that was not present in 2014. The letters don't show up instantly, they seem to have like a 0,1 second delay or something. This also happens with autosuggest turned off.

Annoying indeed Sep 24, 2015

I also find AutoSuggest in SDL Trados Studio 2015 is so annoying that I have to turn it off. When there are matches found if I keep typing, most of what I have typed will be lost. It's kind of force you to use one of the suggestions, doesn't matter if you like it or not.

I capture this on video at: https://youtu.be/IMYWP6rVmRs

Other autosuggest bugs with voice recognition Sep 28, 2015

With the previous service pack update, I had to turn autosuggest off altogether to use my voice recognition software and I was not pleased with this.

Now I thought it might be safe to turn it back on again and what do I find? If I say "Question Mark" Trados writes a slash, which is the non-shift input of the ? mark key. This is TOO weird.

I can say that not being able to use autosuggest with voice recognition is making Memoq my go-to CAT tool. Trados is really missing the boat on this one.

Eating letters fixed, but is there a capital letters problem? Oct 27, 2015

Sometimes the text I write suddenly switches to capital letters, without me being near the shift button. Has anyone else noticed this, or is it a problem with my computer? It only happens in Trados, though ...
