Dear colleages,

I am translating a very large PPT in Studio 2014. I am editing a lot of figures in the right column but not confirming such segments (Ctrl+Enter) because, among other reasons, if do so, the program considers them fuzzies/100% matches/repetitions, asks me if I want to apply my translation in the following segments and then "propagates" such figures in a different format I do not want.

My question is, once I generate the target translation, will such figures in unconfirmed segments appear as edited by me (in the right column of Editor) or as they were in the source (in the left column of Editor)?

Thanks a lot in advance for your replies!

Rebeca

The target document will contain what is in the target segment Jul 29, 2016

The status of the segment doesn't have any influence on what will be in the target document. It will contain exactly what you see in the target column of your Editor, whether you confirmed the segment or not. Confirming a segment writes this segment as a TU into your TM, if you don't confirm, it will not be in the TM, but still appear in your target document.

Please also note that if a target segment is empty, the target document will contain what is in the source segment.

... unless you confirm the empty segment, in which case the segment will be empty in the target document as well.

... to wonder about it, Rebeca. You can export the job to PowerPoint whenever you want and take a look at the file produced. I don't have Studio 2014, only 2011, but I imagine it's the same principle.
