Trados-related topic

 

The Trados TM property page in the Dictionary/TM Options dialog box is used to specify options for finding text in and saving text to a Trados translation memory.  You can choose to ignore the ampersand (&) hotkey specification character ignored when searching for translations and/or have it omitted when saving text to a translation memory.

 

The Dictionary/TM Options dialog box is opened by clicking on the Find and Get Translation Options button (shown left) or by using the same command from the Trados menu.

Minimum match value (%) Edit Field

The minimum match value (%) expresses the minimum acceptable degree of similarity between the current source segment and matching segments found in the dictionary/translation memory.  Fuzzy (partial) matches that fall below the minimum match value are treated as non-matches.  The minimum match value generally lies between 50% and 100%, with the default value being 60%.
