Back again, Ralf, following your help on importing of yesterday, sorry!

When I use the TM, when I open a segment, the Italian is repeated in the target segment as in the source segment.

Concordance works fine, though.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Is that really a problem? Apr 2, 2006

Hi Mary Rose,

Sometimes that's not a problem, particularly when you have to copy figures or proper names. However, if it bugs you, I reckon you can get rid of it this way:

-In Trados WorkBench, go to Options
-Click "Translation memory options"
-Under the "General" tab, you'll see a box named "Copy source on no match". (Since you're getting the original segments, this should be selected.)
-Deselect it.
-Click OK

And that should do.

HTH,
Jerónimo


Re-reading your tread I'm not sure you had the problem I explained how to solveicon_frown.gif? Sorry if I didn't get it

Unfortunately it didn't work Apr 2, 2006

Thanks Jéronimo, it was a good thought, but in fact "Copy source on no match" hadn't been selected. I tried selecting and deselecting, but that didn't work either.

Thanks for your help anyway.

And yes, it really does bug me!

I may sound stupid, but Apr 3, 2006

Have you asked in the Yahoo group? Apr 4, 2006

Hi Mary Rose,

I'm sorry that you still have that problem.

I can't think of another possible solution, but probably somebody in the Trados Yahoo group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TW_users/) has a good idea. You need to sign in, but it's free and quick.

Good luck,
Jero
