Hi there!

I'm totally new to Transit NXT and I don't understand why the source text is displayed in the editors target language window.

When working with Trados Studio I just translate one segment, then use a shortcut to confirm the segment and jump to then next one. After doing that I can start translating the next segment immediately, without having to delete any text first. Is this possible with Transit NXT also?

It would be very much extra work if I would have to mark every segment with the mouse and then delete it before I can even start translating.

I would be very happy if somebody would tell me that there is a workaround for this.

I also wonder: Why doesn't a standard shortcut like Ctrl + A (to mark an entire segment) work in Transit?

Kind regards,
Thor

Shortcuts Mar 26, 2015

Hi Thor,

The keyboard shortcut to confirm a segment is Alt+Insert.

Transit leaves the source in the target window for you to overwrite. If you don't like that, though, there is a function which will empty the next segment when you confirm the previous one with Alt+Insert.

Go to the Processing ribbon and click on the "Confirm" drop-down under the big green tick on the left. There should be an option there called "Empty next segment". Select that, and next time you use Alt+Insert, the next segment you leap to will be wiped clean for you.

Hope that helps!

Thanks... Mar 26, 2015

Thanks Karen!

The project I'm working on has got an empty line at the end of each segment. So when I use the shortcut Alt + Insert the cursor doesn't jump to the next segment, it just moves to the empty line below (which is a part of the same segment). Are you familiar with this? I found lots of Transit screenshots on Google and other Transit projects doesn't seem to be like this.

That's not something I immediately recognise, sorry. I guess you can't paste a screenshot in here, sadly.
