Please forgive my very basic question, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

When I translate a segment and am happy with my translation I check the "Approved" box - does this automatically enter my translation into the TM? And if I later decide to make changes to this "approved" segment, when I again check the "approved" box does it automatically overwrite my previous translation?


I must say I'm not wild about the User Guide; for a beginner who's not very CAT literate, it's not always very clear.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

If you have a write-enabled database, your translation is stored in it when you approve the segment.

And if I later decide to make changes to this "approved" segment, when I again check the "approved" box does it automatically overwrite my previous translation?


If you have a write-enabled database, the translation is automatically updated.

Regards,
Rodolfo
