Commands

 

Start/Close Trados Translator's Workbench

Switch button.  Starts and closes the Trados Translator's Workbench.

 

Status Indicators

If a translation memory is selected (i.e., active in the Translator's Workbench), a status indicator (red/green dot) appears on the toolbar button.  A red dot indicates that the TMís language ID(s) does/do not match the one(s) for the current project's source and/or target language.  When a red dot is shown the TM is disabled for all operations related to working on or with the TM.  A green dot indicates that the translation project's source and target language IDs match those of the TM- the TM can be modified and used to support the translation process for that particular project.

 

Trados TM Properties

Opens the Properties page for the active TM.  Moving the mouse cursor over the button displays a tooltip text indicating the source and target languages of the TM.

 

Trados: Find and Get Translation Options

Opens the Dialog Box/TM Options dialog box where you can set various options for working with dictionaries and translation memories.

Find and Get (Auto-Translate)

Searches the active TM for a translation for the currently selected source item.  The best matching translation is entered as the target text and saved.  (NOTE: This function will not overwrite an existing translation.)  Use the drop-down button on the right to enable/disable the auto-find-get function for the TM.

 

Get Translation from Trados TM

Copies the translation text selected in the Translator's Workbench to the Target edit field in RC-WinTrans' Translation Edit bar.
