Does anyone know if there is a way to add new entries to the Autocorrect list while translating? Something like the right-click 'Add to autocorrect' option in MS Word?
I'm using Studio 2017.

Concordance matches Feb 23, 2017

Hi Hayley,

Have you got Concordance matches from current TM ticked under your autocorrect options? That should bring things up as they arise in your current text. Under File > Options > Autosuggest - Translation memory and Automated Translation then tick Concordance matches. For termbase terms, just highlight both terms in source and target, then right click and press Quick add new term.

How to get to Autocorrect the long way and the fast way Feb 23, 2017

It's a bit long-winded: go to general options (Alt+F+T), select Editor, Autocorrect, and add the typo and the correct word.

AFAIK, Word will only offer a right-click Autocorrect option if you get an add-on. Similarly, in Studio it should be fairly easy to set up a sort of macro with AutoHotKey to get to Autocorrect with a couple of clicks.
