TranslateUntilNoMatch Feb 5, 2009

translate until no match
translate until fuzzy
and
Auto translate while 100% match
are all descriptions for the same Wordfast function.

The Wordfast macro TranslateUntilNoMatch will be executed and Wordfast Classic will automatically segment and translate the text until a less than 100% match is found.

Regards,
Gerard

In Wordfast Pro the "Translate until Fuzzy" function will translate through your segments (leveraging the TM) until a segment is found with less then a 100% match. "Translate until No Match" will translate through your segments (leveraging the TM) until a segment is found with No Match. NO match is defined by your Fuzzy threshold which can be set in Edit->Preferences->Translation Memory.

Best

I still not sure with this one. If this is no match compare with TM so what can they translate?

I am not sure I understand your question. If there is NO Match, (less then your fuzzy threshold percentage, 75% default) then nothing would be inserted (leveraged) from the TM and the translator would need to translate the entire segment.

If this doesnt answer your question could you possibly rephrase so I can get a better understanding?

Thanks
Hillary
