Hi,

I have been using Wordfast Classic 6.03t. I find that it can not recognize a term before a full stop. For example, keyboard is a term in glossary. If a segment goes like this "Use a keyboard." the term can not be recognized (highlighted). Even if I save it as "keyboard?" or "keyboard*", it is not still highlighted.

Could everyone help me with this problem? Thank you.

Do you use fuzzy recognition? Is your glossary ANSI or Unicode?

Sample Chinese segment Feb 27, 2013

OK, I saw your language pair has Chinese, so you must be using Unicode. If you have Chinese as source, can you post a sample Chinese segment in which the last word is not recognized, although you have entered it as a term in your glossary?

examples of the error Mar 4, 2013

Thank you for your kind help.
Please find the following example. The term "keyboard" is in both segements.

In first segment, the term is recognized perfectly.



In the second, it is not highlighted.


This is pretty wired. However, if a segment goes like is "Tap keys on the keyboard,"


the term is recognized. So, I guest it is “full stop" that causes this error. But I just can't figure why.
