I don't know how to get leveraging to overwrite an already translated segment in the same file.

I get leveraging of the most recent highest match TM occurrence when I get to a segment which is still empty. Let's say segment 10

Then, I go on translating till the end of the file and go back to the beginning to work at it again. If I had changed a similar segment after segment 10 (let's say 15) I should get segment 10 updated with the most recent TM.

Is it right or not?

Thanks

auto-propagation settings Feb 12, 2017

Hello Lucia,

Check your auto-propagation settings in the preferences. This might be the cause of your woes. You should enable it.

Best,
John

For a 99% match or lower? Feb 12, 2017

I'm sorry, I was not clear asking this question.

I have auto-propagation enabled, so all 100% matches are propagated.

But if you have a 99% match or lower, auto-propagation doesn't apply: it should leverage the most recent occurrence in the TM.

Maybe it doesn't leverage the latest TM occurrence if you don't save the file?

Thanks
Lucia
