I mainly use Wordfast but today tried Trados for a change!

Sometimes (about 1 segment in 10) when I get a source segment that I have translated before, the target segment remains blank even though the percentage match is shown and my last translation of the source appears in Translators Workbench. This happens only for certain segments even when I get a 98 % match.
Thanks for help

"Open" vs. "Open/Get"? Feb 28, 2006

Hi NR,
Sorry if this is obvious - but which command are you using to open a segment - Open or Open/Get? The former allows you to enter a segment without pasting the matching segment, whilst the latter places it into the target segment.

Best regards,

Ths may be the answer! Feb 28, 2006

Thanks Ralf, this is probably the answer. I am an absolute beginner with Trados!
