Editing TM in WFA

Hello World,

I'm a beginner user of WFA. I used the «align your files» function in WFA to align a few files I had already translated.

I received the aligned files by email, with 2 other files containing the material the aligner couldn't handle.

Then I uploaded the aligned files to my newly created TM.

Now I want to fix some segments in the TM, those that the aligner couldn't handle.


In the tools tab, I found that I could access the segments through the «Concordance Search» function.

When this function finds a segment, it displays it and gives you the option to modify the target segment.


Now, I need to do this, but methodically. I need to access the TM and browse through it. If it is possible to access it with a «search» function, it must be possible to access it directly. I must be missing something because this seems like a very basic thing to do. or not?

Thanks

P.

There's no built-in TM editor in WFA for now, so you must download a copy of your TM and edit it locally. Wordfast Classic has a TM editor (you should be able to edit your TM in demo mode, even if its side exceeds the limit of the demo node). Another possibility is to use Olifant (http://okapi.sourceforge.net/downloads.html).
