I migrated to a new computer (Windows XP, Office 2003 and Trados 7) and everything on my new computer looks just like it looked on my old. I think that I haven't configurated the Tm options (now term recognition on 70%) properly, since I am am translating TUs I know almost by heart and Trados is not recognizing them!
Any ideas of what to do?
Thank you!

Hi!

If you haven't check this already, make sure that you have set the
term recognition correctly both under Options-Term recognition options (for correct language, as I see you do several languages) and also that recognition is "on" under Options and just make sure there that Term recognition is ticked (or press Ctrl R).

Good luck

Anette

Yes, this was all OK! Apr 22, 2006

Term recognition is on, correct languages are selected and it should work. But it still doesn't!icon_frown.gif

TUs and Terms Apr 22, 2006

Hi !

You should make the distinction between TUs stored in the Translation Memory, and the terms contained in the Termbase (Term recognition).

I think you refer here to TUs, isn't it?
Just check in the Workbench : Options, Translation Memory Options, General. Set the "minimum match value" to the value of your choice. This should do the trick.

HTH,
Sylvain
