Terminology matches in Transit with no dictionary

Hi all,

I have a bit of a newbie question about Transit that has been puzzling me.

I am creating projects and adding a large amount of reference material for the pre-translation. I'm not adding any kind of dictionary or glossary to these projects.

However, when I open up the language pairs for translation, after a little while words start to get highlighted in yellow and terminology matches are displayed in the terminology window.

Given that I am not using any dictionary, where are these matches coming from? How can I control this? When this starts happening, it can freeze for minutes when switching between segments so, useful as it may be, I would really like to be able to turn it off.

It looks to me like Transit is mining the reference material somehow and extracting terminology, but I can't find any specific mention of such a feature in the documentation. The closest I can find is 'Dynamic Linking', but going by the Users Guide that is just a concordance search window.

Thanks!

Leon

Terminology inferred from markups Jul 14, 2016

This terminology is coming from markups (i.e. tags). If you previously had a sentence such as "Bitte *nicht* essen" and your translation was "Please *do not* eat" (where the asterisk represents a markup), then it will offer you nicht/do not as a terminology suggestion.
You can easily turn it off in the user preference settings. Press the big Transit button in the top left corner, go to User preferences | Terminology search and then deselect the two "Regard formatted strings..." options. That should stop anything showing up any longer.
Hope that helps!

I'm afraid that you cannot deactivate Dual Linking. I have all relevant checkboxes in the settings unticked and created a new project, without any reference files. This is what I get:

This is an option in "User Preferences", "Terminology search" .
If "regard formatted strings from the working folder/reference material" is activated, the terminology from the texts in markups (have to be in the same markups in source and target) is also showed in the terminology list.
