Problems with Wordfast Classic Glossary: entries NOT added in TARGET language
Thread poster: Itziar Crespo
May 8, 2019

Hello everyone,
I had to deinstall WFC and have installed it again but now I'm having problems with the glossary. When I add a new term to the glossary, I write its translation in the "target term" field but the translation is NOT SAVED and the source term appears instead in the "target term" field. So I get the source term both in the "source term" and the "target term" fields. I can only save the translation if I open the txt file and type it.. which is very annoying.
Anyone clues

Better to post in dedicated Wordfast thread May 8, 2019

Hi!
You'll probably reach the best people to answer your question if you post it in the dedicated thread for Wordfast in the CAT Tools forum.
When re-posting, I suggest you mention the exact version number you are using, along with the version of Word and Windows you are working with.
How are you entering the terms? I use the method of highlighting the source word, then using Ctl + Alt + T, then doing the same again for the target word. Sometimes, I do forget and press the shor

Thank you May 9, 2019

Thank you Tony!
I guess I've been redirected to another forum. It's the first time I ask for advice at Proz...
I normally highlight the source term and use Ctrl+Alt+T to open the glossary window and add the translation. No need to highlight the target term later.
I won't bother you again and will get advice from the right forum.
Thanks again!
