Hello!

I have been using Wordfast for translation projects since 2009 and I thought I handled most of the features of the program, but now that I am receiving proofreadings I miss the "Different target in TM" function from Trados.

When I work on proofreadings with Trados and I modify a segment, next time I found a repetition of that segment Trados displays the "Different target in TM" message. I guess there should be a similar function in Wordfast for the proofreading workflow, but I have been looking for in the manuals, in these forums and in the application itself and I was unable to find it.

Do you know if Wordfast includes a similar function? In case not, how do you handle the repetitions during proofreadings and editings?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best,
Edu

red segment border Jan 21, 2011

I don't know Trados, but I believe that the Wf feature whereby the target segment has a right border when its content is different from the TM matches what you describe.

I think that is exactly what I am looking for, but I think this red border you are referring to appears only in Wordfast Classic. Do you know if there is something similar in Wordfast Pro?

Many thanks in advance!

Edit: I have been looking for in depth and I just found this post:

Here it is explained how to deal with this, enabling global autpropragation, but from what I see I think there is no specific way to deal with this when the proofreading comprises several filesicon_frown.gif

Perform TM Lookup automatically Jan 22, 2011

Dear Edu,

You can go to Edit > Preferences > Translation Memory and check the option: Perform TM Lookup automatically > OK. Now, every time you move to a segment, you will see all its words in the TM Lookup textbox which will be automatically searched.


I hope this helps.

Could someone please... Jan 22, 2011

take the word "Trados" out here?
This has nothing to do with Trados...
Please, that would be really kind, so that I would not get alerted by every single new post here...
