Hello fellow colleagues,

sorry if this has been reported before, I'm currently in a 'hot' project and cannot make an indepth research in the forum posts.
It's as I say in the title: In some segments I have a fuzzy match as high as 85%, but Trados will not make me insert the match in my target language segment. If I chose 'Apply Translation' , then the Fragement matches will be inserted, and not the 85% match, I notice that the 'Apply Translation Result' is greyed-out.
I could switch-off the Fragment search to - maybe - solve the problem, but I still want to have it!

Is this a bug with the current Trados version, or is this caused by a non-activated setting in 'Project Settings' ?

Btw: I notice that Trados doesn't always propose terms already in the Termbase made a few segments before (File-based termbase) and is not always showing fragment searches that are present...Still not everything works ok. Here too, I wonder if it's just my settings or some bugs in the program.

Thanks very much for your suggestions or solutions!
Mike

TOPIC STARTER
Very strange... Jul 24

I now have fixed the problem by going in the general options. A message was showing saying something like 'Cannot find the translation memory xxx, browse for it...' . I did and after that Apply Translation works again. This should not happen because the TM window in general options should be empty AFAIK...

[EDIT]
Also, some of my matches are concordance matches, not 'translation results matches', but although 90% of the words are identical it doesn't count as translation match, how's that, Trados developers ?? I have to copy-paste and lose time...
