Hi,

I don't have time to look for it in the manual.

I have a long text that is almost 100% match as a whole. All I need to do is check non-100% matches which is like 10% of the total text. Is there a short cut forcing Worfast to enter only non-100% segments?

There are no colours used to mark different segments, hence the problem.

Thanks in advance
Katarzyna

Dear Katarzyna,

In the Outline View (to the right), select "All Except 100%" from the drop-down menu. This will be reflected on the same Outline View; you will be able to move to those segments one by one.

what about Wordfast 5 May 15, 2011

Hi,

Thanks a lot. I forgot to mention that I have Wordfast 5. It seems that this command is available in WF Pro only?

A workaround that would require you to press Alt+End a lot of times, but it'll save you time anyway:

1. Mark all 100 matches so that you can easily see if you've accidentally entered one:

Find: } 1 0 0 {
Replace with: Highlight
(To get "Highlight", click More..., make sure your cursor is in the "Replace" field, then click Format > Highlight. The current highlight colour will be used.)
Replace all.

2. Use the "Find" box to find the next non-100% segment:

Find: \ } [ 0 - 9 ] [ 0 - 9 ] \ {
Wildcards: on
(To get to "Wildcards, click More...)

Use the Find dialog to jump to the next segment after you've closed the previous one. You can also record a macro, if you know how to do that. The above find operation won't find 0% matches, though.

Spaces added to fix ProZ.com bug.

PB Command May 15, 2011

Dear Katarzyna,

There is a Pandora's Box (PB) command for what you need. Go "Setup" > PB > click "Commands" and check the option "Enable PB". Then find the command "SkipSegment>99" and remove the underscore to activate it. Close and save the settings.

Now, Worfast will enter only non-100% segments and will skip other segments.


I hope this helps.

PB setting not working Sep 17, 2011

I've tried this, as a client wants only non-100% matches translated. But the very first segment that opens when I start the job is a 100% match and the translated text has been inserted in the target field. Re-reading this thread it looks like the PB function works only when reviewing translated text; is there any way of skipping 100% matches when doing the original translation?

I'm using WF 5.52zx on a PC (Win XP, SP3) - and no, I refuse to update to the latest version of WF, as 5.52zx proved to be the latest *stable* version last time I tried a more recent one.
