When you apply translation memory (TM) suggestions
How to Accept Exact Matches on Applying Translation Memory
- Select File > Options.
- Select the Translation Memory tab.
Select Accept Exact Matches upon applying TM.
If this option is selected and you apply translation memory (TM), 100% or 101% matches are automatically populated in the target cells and accepted. Therefore, the Status column for those segments in the Translation Editor is displayed with a gray background and check mark.
If this option is not selected and you apply TM, 100% or 101% matches are simply populated in the target cells; they are not yet confirmed. This lets you review those segments before manually accepting the matching translations.
- Click OK.
Note If you apply TM to a project with multiple TM databases selected, Lingo applies matching translations from the highest-ranked database. If no databases are ranked, Lingo applies matching translations from the first database selected.
Note If you apply TM and a segment has multiple exact or context matches, Lingo applies the match from the highest-ranked TM database. If no databases are ranked or there are multiple matches in the same database, Lingo applies the first match it finds in the TM database.
