I'm using WF Pro 5.4 on a Mac. A client has given me two TMs to work with, so I have a primary and a secondary TM. I've been asked to penalize the secondary TM at 10% - like they did in Trados.

First of all, I have never done this before (I didn't even know what penalties were), so I tried to change the value of "case" to 5 (that's apparently the maximum). But every time I change the case value of the secondary TM, the one of the primary TM changes as well. I cannot seem to change

First of all, I have never done this before (I didn't even know what penalties were), so I tried to change the value of "case" to 5 (that's apparently the maximum). But every time I change the case value of the secondary TM, the one of the primary TM changes as well. I cannot seem to change the values separately for each TM.

Am I doing this right? I don't know how to penalize in general and I don't know how to penalize just one TM and not the other. I'm clueless...

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Upgrade to 5.13 Feb 17

I would first update version of WFP to 5.13.

Once Project is open with two TMs set to Primary/Secondary, go to Preferences > Penalties and set Secondary TM penalty to 10. Also Wordfast leveraged score from secondary TM will have asterisk.

Let us know if this worked.

Thank you,
John
