I have a document open in Word, and Workbench is running with the Trados TM I want to use. How can I automatically and quickly apply all of the translations in the TM to all of the segments in the document? I don't want to have to press Alt+Num+plus 500 times (once for each segment)!

Thanks in advance.

Translate to fuzzy seems an option (Alt + Num *).

two ways Oct 26, 2007

- translate to fuzzy
with the file open in word, just click translate to fuzzy, i.e. alt+*, or

- translate the (doc) file in workbench -> faster
do not open the file on word. on workbench:
click tools - translate - add
select the file to be translated, then click open
click translate
then open the file on word
continue translating the file, if necessary, i.e. the file is not all 100% matched
hit translate to fuzzy to go through the translated segments.
