I am working on Wordfast PRO 3.0 (on a MAC) and translating a table.

I have the following segments (the second column is the translation I'd like to enter):

ENGLISH (source translation) ITALIAN (Target)
Nominator's Manager
Manager del proponente

Nominator's Resp. Risorse Umane
HRM del proponente

I cannot extend the first segment because it belongs to a different paragraph.

If I try to force the translation by entering "Manager" and "Resp. Risorse Umane" as a translation for "Nominator's", the TM updates automatically and I end up with the same translation for both segments.

How can I solve the problem?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Since Wordfast Pro won't allow you to merge these segments, you need to do the merging in the original source document, prior to opening it in Wordfast.
