Glossary - multiple entries

Sometimes it is necessary to translate the same word in source text in more than one way. Does Wordfast handle multiple entries in a glossary (ie. entries in one glossary where the source word is the same and target words are different)? I know such entries can exist in a glossary, but have no idea how to use them afterwards.

Thanks for your help,
MK

Yes, make separate entries Jun 4, 2007

Hello MK,

You just need to make separate entries for each word.
For example:
Source Target
XXX YYY
XXX ZZZ
XXX AAA
etc.

When there is more than one entry, the glossary editor will open up and you can use the arrow keys to select the word you want, then enter/return to propagate it.

Hope this helps,

John Di Rico

I tried to do it but it seems something is wrong Jul 31, 2007

Hello!
I made separate entries, but no glossary editor opens up: should I do something in PB, for instance?
Thanks

Did you select it as a placeable (red box around it)? Is your glossary active?
Try reorganizing your glossary.

I hope these suggestions help...

How can I do it? Aug 1, 2007

How can I select placeable and mark with the red box around it? Glossary should be active as I selected it.

CTL + ALT + right arrow followed by CTL + ALT + down arrow

or

Use the icon in the toolbar to select a placeable. Then the other icon to place it.

Good luck!
