Hi,

is there any way to mark the respective terms in both languages and insert them with the "Add Term" function to the Glossary?

It looks like I can only highlight either the target or the source term. So do I have to type in the "other" term manually?

Any help welcome.

Thanks

Just found the solution: Apr 27, 2016

Highlight the target term, click "Add Term", the Add to Glossary window opens.

Then highlight the source term, click "Add Term" and "OK".

That's all.

In WFC, must highlight source first Apr 27, 2016

WFP3 knows whether a term is source or target. WFC doesn't, so in WFC, you have to select the source term first. By the way, the old WFC shortcut also works in WFP3: Ctrl+Alt+T.

Definitely, yes! Apr 27, 2016

Thank you!

Do you know how to jump with the cursor between the segments? I couldn't find it neither in the manual nor in the shortcut list.

Thank you for your note, Samuel! Apr 27, 2016

WFP3 recognizes source or target term automatically, yes.

On my Mac, none of the suggested shortcuts in the shortcut list is working. But that doesn't matter because I prefer assigning them myself the way it feels good for my hands.

Thanks.

My question... May 5, 2016

...might be silly, but...

1.) is there any way to translate a file automatically with 100% matches from a Glossary?

I have an Excel File and I could successfully import it in my existing Glossary.

I was unable to create a TM from this Excel File and I'm trying for hours now.

2.) Where and how can I display the Glossary on the WFP interface?

3.) How to insert a Glossary entry in the target segment? Can this be done for all segments?

I really appreciate your help. Thank you so much!
