This is driving me nuts!

Background: I am a WF Classic user since 2004, but am currently working on a project that involves multiple text boxes, and WFC does not deal with these efficiently.

Anyway, I decided to give WFA a chance, and having uploaded my glossary and TM have been using it for the past few days.

- Many of the files I'm translating are built identically and have sections that are exactly repeated.
- Most of the time it finds these and they show up green. All fine.
- Infuriatingly, some phrases that I've already translated in previous documents are simply not found, and instead it suggests an incorrect machine translation (with the usual 75%) that I then have to correct. Again. And again. And again....
- I can find now way to "reorganise" or edit the TM like you can with WFC in case something has gone wrong.

I thought maybe it was due to it taking a while to update on the server, but other, more recently added TUs are being found and used correctly.

What's going on here??

Thanks in advance...
Pete.

There is a dedicated mailing list for WFA:

It's where you should report any problems related to WFA. The developers hang out there, not here.

To the attention of the moderator: can we make this a "sticky"? This matter comes up so often the above should be a sticky, like those found on the SDL forum. Thanks in advance!
