Dictionaries View                                                    [Workspace Bar]


The Dictionaries view displays a list of all the dictionaries and translation memories that are available to support the translation process in RC-WinTrans.  Each can be enabled for finding ("find reference") and/or saving ("save reference") translations.


For information on how to create a new dictionary or add an existing dictionary to the Dictionaries view see the help topic "Dictionaries (Overview)."

NOTE:  This symbol appears after a dictionary supporting the languages of the translation project is used in a find or save text operation.

TM File (.sdltm) symbol.

Trados Translation Memory symbol (.tmw file) (Trados Translator's Workbench).

Language Support symbol.  The dictionary supports the source and target languages of the translation project.

Read-Only symbol.  The dictionary is read-only and cannot be edited.



Find/Save Reference Checkboxes and Dictionary Size

For each dictionary there are two checkboxes that can be checked or unchecked to enable or disable a dictionary as a find or save reference.  The number of entries contained in the dictionary (size) is displayed beneath the checkboxes.
