Cannot edit "Options for showing differences"

Hello everbody,

I am translating an xliff file with SDL Trados Studio 2015.

My translation results window does not show the differences between the new fragment to be translated and existing partial match segments in the memory (which should be in blue for extra words and crossed red for deleted words) – so I have to compare the new segment and the old segment by myself. Actually, my Trados never showed the differences and I just got to know this feature when using a different translation tool.

So, I just wanted to change the settings, but the field "Options for showing differences" is greyed out and I cannot choose anything there. Does anybody know why it is greyed out and how I can fix this?

All the best,
Saskia

Option of the drop-down list Feb 5

Hi Saskia,

Just above the “Options for showing differences” section, there is a drop-down list (it’s called something like “Display mode for the search results”; my version is in French, so it’s an approximate translation). If the option you chose in that drop-down list is “Show proposed translation”, that might explain why the options below are greyed out. You should use “Show original translation unit” in the drop-down list. This should "ungrey" the options for showing differences.

Hope it helps…
Sylvie
