I have received a rather large Excel file to proofread, which would not be a problem if I did not have to use the TM and therefore do it using Wordfast.

I am really not sure how to go about it and would appreciate some help.

I opened the column of the file to be translated and used the Translate All option to fill in the translation from the TM provided. The problem is that the segments don't always match, so I get no translation at all for some target segments. Is there any way that WF will adjust the source segments to the provided TM automatically, so all segments can be translated from the TM and I can simply make any necessary changes in the target segments? And if so, how would I activate this feature?

Lower Fuzzy threshold Jun 21, 2010


The first thing that came to my mind is lowering Fuzzy threshold.
If it's, for example, 75% then make it 70% or 65%.
