I'm translating a medical study from Portuguese into English, and it's time-consuming to re-enter all of the numerical values which occur in the study, given that there's no actual translation necessary. How can I approach this problem to minimize my time spent re-entering data?

I've tried to consult the knowledgebase for WordFast with little success. I'm very new to CAT tools, and learning as I go, so please be gentle.

which copies the source text of the current segment.

When WF Pro takes a segment in the TM, it doesn't seem to "adapt" the figures in this segment, as did WF Classic. So in the huge PPT file I translated last week, and which contained figures and tables, I had the choice:
- either using the match found in the TM and retype the figures
- either copy the source as described above, and translate the text, leaving the figures unchanged.

More easy method! Jan 28, 2010

If your TM prompts some matches found in the TM, copy it and press Alt+Insert. Your source will be copied in the translation cell. Now put the cursor wherever you like to paste the match you have copied. How simple! Is it?
