Hello, I have a question regarding the use of wildcards in Wordfast glossaries. Should they be put at the end of the term or at the end of a stem only? My pair is English-Polish.

I have, for instance the word:

karta pokładowa boarding pass

Now, should the asterisk go like this...

kart* pokładow* boarding pass* (cutting the ending and leaving the stem only)


karta* pokładowa* boarding pass* (the asterisk goes at the end of the FULL word).

I think I read somewhere that the latter method is possible, because Wordfast recognizes where the stem is (thus making it easier to add new entries to a glossary), but when I try doing it this way, Wordfast doesn't recognize the term.

Should there be only the stem followed by an asterisk?

Thank you
