Hi,

Wordfast 2.4.2
Macintosh OS X version 10.6.8

I use multiple TMs and multiple glossaries. While the TM shows the TM name for multiple matches, I haven't figured out yet how to know if a term comes from one or another glossary.

I use my personal glossary and glossaries sent by the clients. When I have multiple matches, the table that appears shows all the target terms and the description only. It would be very helpful to know what term comes from where.
Is there a way?
Cheers

Different colours Sep 8, 2011

The different glossaries should come up in different colours, which you can change if the default colours don't suit. As I remember, when you set up the TM/glossaries at the start, it shhows you what colour each glossary appears in on the set-up screen. I think you can change them in Pandora's Box. This applies to Classic of course - I assume that's what you're using?

Hope this helps,

Claire

Wf 2.4.2 is NOT WfC Sep 8, 2011

There indeed does not seem to be any color setting for glossaries in WfPro.

still lost among glossaries Oct 28, 2011

I urge the WFpro team to lend me a hand here. I have my large glossary and the client's, which is typically very poor. Having to open the txt files to check which is which it really defeats the purpose of having a translation tool. It would save me an enormous amount of time ...
Cheers
