Hi everyone,

I have encountered a problem when working in WordFast Pro 4.8.2.

Even though I have chosen the option "Add to TM by overwriting the existing TU", after creating a brand new TM, I still have several target segments for the same source segment. The attributes are identical (except the time). Nevertheless, I think it acts as if I had chosen "Only add to TM the new TU; do not overwrite the existing TU".

Any ideas on how to fix this? I check the manual, but I found no answer.

Thanks in advance!

Paula

Hmmm Aug 30, 2016

Have you tried unchecking the top-most TM option "Write unedited fuzzy and exact segments to TM"???

Unchecked "Write unedited fuzzy and exact segments to TM" Aug 30, 2016

Yes, that is unchecked as well.

I´ll keep trying to find a solution.

Thanks!

Hi Paula,

I have few questions:

1) Are you trying to cleanup from Quick Tools Cleanup or Project Cleanup inside the current project?
2) How do you add the attributes?
3) Do you add to same TM from TXLF editor as well?
4) Is this local or WFServer TM?
5) WFServer TM I need more info on how it is setup?

Any steps on the order you added TUs to TM, screenshots of the same TUs not being overwritten, and screenshots of Cleanup tab settings would help. If you add TUs through editor check what options you have in Project Preferences.


Thank you,

John

Hi John,

Thanks for your help. Here are my answers:

1) I always clean up from Quick Tools Cleanup.
2) I don't add attributes manually. Should I?
3) Yes, as I translate the document, I commit to the TM with Alt + down arrow.
4) It is a new local TM, with nothing in it.
5) No WFServer TM.

I'm not sure how to include screenshots here, but I'll specify the selected options below:

- PREFERENCES > New Project Preferences > TM

NO Write unedited fuzzy...
NO Copy source when...
YES Add to TM by overwriting the existing TU

In the Replaceables section, all options are marked.

- QUICK TOOLS > Cleanup

TM Update Options
Update Option: Overwrite existing TU
No other options marked in this section

Thank you so much for your help. If you know how to add screenshots here, let me know!

Kind regards,

Paula
