In a new-ish project I have a translation memory that should return hits in the concordance but it is finding some strings but not others. Concordance is checked in the settings. What should I check for?

In haste,
Dan

Hi Dan in Haste

Have you verified that you have your intended TM active?
Are you indeed referring to Concordance pane or Translation pane?
Are you referring to a manual lookup (F3) or automatic lookup?

What are your settings under:
Editor > "concordance search window"
Do you have the first box checked: Perform search if TM lookup returns no results?

Editor > Automation > first box:
Perform lookup when active segment changes

Language Pairs > All Language Pairs > Trans Mem & Autom Trans > Search
Try changing (lowering) match value to 60 in middle field (Concordance).
Have you checked Show most recent translations first?
Show best matches from all providers?

Lianne

Thank you Lianne - it seems that somehow this had become unchecked. It now seems to be working as expected.

Cheers
Dan
