By the way, I'm working at a Transit project and for moving from an already translated segment to the next one I'm using (as usual) the key combination ALT + INS but sometimes it occurs that when the system finds a 100% segment it goes over and swallows the segment, that iis it disappears in the target file. I can only see the two tags and between them no text. What is wrong?

this might mean Apr 19, 2007

..that someone before you translated that particular segment with a blank segment (maybe because he/she decided to put the translation before that segment or after it, for formatting reasons, for example).
It happens to me sometimes with certain manuals.
I don't think there is something in particular that you can do in this case, expect for noticing where this happens and carefully going through the translated text during/at the end of your project to check that everything is in its place.

Hope this helps.

Valentina

may be Apr 19, 2007

but sometimes it occurs with segments that I translated during this project and not translated by other traslators. The client just wrote me that there could be something wrong with this extract. This means that I should enter manually all missing segments. grrrrrrrrr:-(((

check your minimum status for fuzzies Apr 19, 2007

Hi Beatrice,
It might be worthwhile creating a second project (i.e. new name) and then carrying out a quick check of the segments that are causing problems to see what is actually happening - is it your software or did the project manager not prepare the project properly?

Did you use Alt + enter to copy the fuzzy match into the target segment and then confirm with Alt + Insert (to set the segment status to "translated"?

Check your minimum match for fuzzies under
Options > Profile > Settings > Fuzzy index > minimum segment status for fuzzy match
and uncheck or set to translated, if necessary.

There are other tricks for the Smart/Professional version, but Satellite doesn't have concordance search or viewing filters so they won't work here.

HTH and good luck
Jill
