For me, SP 10 was a reason to play around a little with Transit again. It has been some time now since I stopped using Transit, so my knowledge is a little rusty.

I was wondering: Does Transit provide any means of auto-completion/auto-suggestion?

With this project:


I was expecting to see some typing aid for 'coffee', 'coffeemaker' etc.

As far as I know, I have set all relevant settings in Transit's configuration menus.

Source language fuzzy? Jun 15

Hi Hans,

did you try the source fuzzy function? Maybe not exactly what you expect as "autocomplete", but a kind of...

Best regards,

Target fuzzy? Jun 15

Hi Hans,

I suppose target fuzzy is not what you mean, is it? I stopped using the target language fuzzy shortly after installing Transit NXT as I found it confusing and hindering my train of thoughts.

I know that some colleagues say Trados Studio's Autosuggest function is one of the main advantages over the use of Transit. I have never seen a demonstration how it actually works, though.

Not really helpful, I am afraid.

With Youtube service it is not a problem nowadays to see how this feature works. In other words, see it in action.

For DejaVu:
From about 01:55

For Trados Studio (even in German):
From about 06:28

Actually, as I don't believe in any kind of machine translation and at the same time I am not a lightning-speed typist, this feature improves greatly my general velocity of translation. And I cannot imagine how to live without it icon_smile.gif

Good luck
