Hello,

I have just installed Wordfast Pro 4 and am using it for the first time.

I have imported my client's package, which comprises the files and TM. I can open the files and can see that some segments have TM matches, along with the percentage of match.

However, the TM look up window, at the bottom of my screen is empty, even though the current segment is showing a partial TM match..

I'm sure it is something obvious that I am missing, perhaps a setting I missed out when installing the software, or a TM setting I need to check!

If anybody knows, I'd sure appreciate the help!

Many thanks
Cecilia

**Edit: I have just noticed that the TM included in the package appears as "TM Server" Type, is that why I am not seeing the match results? Do I need to import it in order to view them? I noticed this, after translating a segment, and pressing Alt+Down, it warns me "No writable TM available"... ** Thank you!

TMs already in the package Nov 17, 2016

Hello Cecilia
TM and glossary should be already in the package, which means that when you import it you should also get them by default.

Why don't you ask the peson who sent you the package, confirming they were included in the package?

Kind regards
Lucia

Issue coming from TM Server Nov 17, 2016

Thank you for your answer Lucia,

Yes I did ask the client about it and they sent me a copy of the TM which I added to my project locally, that seems to work now.

I still don't know why I could not view the match results in the TM Look up window with using simply the TM Server - it's as if WF thought there was no TM.. at least I can complete this project now!

Hi Cecilia,

Do you have Automatic Leverage checkbox checked under TM Lookup tab More Options button?

Thank you,

John
