Dear all,

I use Trados 2015 with some MT and a TM. None of the target translation results from a TM or MT get automatically projected into the target box, except using Ctrl + T.
Is there a way to get my target segment filled automatically? Does it have to do with the selection of languages for the TM?
Many thanks for your help.

Use "Pre-translate" by right-clicking on the file in the Files

I don't believe that is what I want: I need the TM matches directly into my target segment, no complete pre-translated file.

Hi Laurent,

Studio will automatically pull TM hits into empty segments if the following setting is active:
File > Options > Editor > Automation > Apply best match after successful lookup

Please note that the target segment has to be empty.

Hope that helps!

Kind regards,
Jenny

That option has created problems for me. When I have used a hit and edited it, I've found that the propagated hits still use the slightly incorrect TM rather than my edit, so I have found it better to deactivate this option.

Dear all,

Jenny's hint did it. I will further look into it as Roy mentions there may be drawbacks lying ahead.
Till here.
