Hi experts,

I have WF Pro 3.4.5. Earlier, as and when a placeholder was missing in the target text, there was a warning and I used to insert the placeholders. But, I am experiencing from the last few days that there is no warning even if a placeholder is missing in target text and the next segment is simply opened for translation. I assume that some option has been activated inadvertently. I tried to find a solution but in vain. Could you please guide me in this respect?

Thanks and regards,

Chopra

Select "Transcheck during translation" Jan 29, 2016

Dear Chopra,

Please go to Wordfast Pro > Edit menu > Preferences > TransCheck, and make sure that this option is checked: "Transcheck during translation". On the same dialogue, select "Tag"under "Configuration". Then, click "OK".

"Transcheck during translation" option makes Wordfast Pro warn you when you press Alt+Down while the current segment is missing whatever options you have selected for TransCheck such as placeholders (i.e. "Tag").

I hope this helps. Please let me know.

Kind regards,
Yasmin
