Hello,

I translate similar content for one client into both Spanish and Catalan, and I always use AnyTM to ensure consistency between the two languages.

However, that causes a huge problem:

Imagine, I have to translate T-shirt into Catalan. This is both in my Catalan TM (Samarreta) and in my Spanish TM (Camiseta).

But since I am using both TMs (with AnyTM), it will RANDOMLY PICK THE CATALAN OR SPANISH TRANSLATION. So, I all the time have to go back and pick the other language. This seriously delays my translation process.

The solution is simple and the infrastructure already exists: add a penalty for 'Different language pair (AnyTM)'.

Do other translators experience the same problem?

Thanks and regards,
Hans

More problems due to this... Apr 25, 2016

The absence of the penalty for different languages also results in 100% matches for a translation from another language. This can inadvertently result in segments being translated into the wrong language!

Suggestion not picked up in Studio 2017 Mar 13

As far as I can see, my brand new Studio 2017 did NOT come with the possibility of adding a penalty for language differences when using AnyTM. I must say I'm slightly disappointed (I had high hopes for this feature) and I hope it's possible to configure AnyTM in another way so the matches in the right language are prioritised.
