I have in my WB a TU starting with: "Smartports Advisor displays the front panels ..."

If I search "Smartports Advisor" in my Termbase XXX in Multiterm XI it immediately finds a hit.

Term recognition is set to work with the same Termbase XXX

And yet "Smartports Advisor" does not appear in the terms panel of WB!

Tried reorganizing the termbase - no change. A term recognition feataure acting at random is absolutely pointless! I am tempted to just trow MTiX in the garbage...

Can you tell me what is wrong with what I am doing?

Running WB 7.1.0.719 (Build 719) and TagEditor 7.1.0.719 (Build 720).

check your penalty setup... Jun 10, 2006

..could be that some invisible characters are interfering.

Is there a penalty setting for Term Recognition? Jun 10, 2006

Dear Vito,

I am talking of the Term Recognition window, the one connecting to Multiterm.

Isn't penalty just a setting for normal TM processing (affecting TU match percentage)?

This happens all the time to me, too Jun 14, 2006

Luca,

I know what you mean. Sometimes I spend a considerable amount of time entering terms into Multiterm while doing the first part of a translation because I know the terms will come up over and over again, but then, as I encounter the same terms throughout the document, sometimes they get recognized and sometimes they don't, totally randomly, as far as I can tell.

Pretty annoying!

I hope someone can tell us how to solve this issue.

Nora

Term recognition settings Jun 14, 2006

Hi Nora, hi Luca,
Check your term recognition settings (Options - Term Recognition Options - Settings); the default settings are a bit on the high side. I use a minimum match value of 50%, sometimes down to 30% - play around with the value to find the right balance.

HTH, Ralf

term recognition settings do not really help Jun 17, 2006

Thank you Ralf. I tried changing term recognition settings for hours. They help a bit, but do not remove the huge problems.
