Dear colleagues,

It so happened that I have 2 different translations for 1 source segment in WordFast Pro. My problem is that once I move on to a next segment, the TM records only one translation for that particular source segment, but I need to keep both translations. To give you an example:

Source:
Pick one [a drink] up at your local supermarket.

Target:

1. Pick one up at your local supermarket.
2. Pick them up at your local supermarket.

Do I have the option to keep both translations? If yes, how do I go about it?

Thanks very much for your help.

TM options Apr 8, 2010

Hello Svetlana,

You need to go to the menu Edit>Preferences>Translation Memories and there you choose: "Add to TM, do not overwrite the existing TU". This should work.

Good luck!icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the suggestion Apr 8, 2010

Thanks a lot, Marcelina - I tried your suggestion, but it doesn't seem to help. The TM still only keeps one version. I guess I'll just have to work out a version that fits both instances, since I have to deliver soon.

In the meantime, if anyone can come up with another solution, I would greatly appreciate it!
