Extracted term translation
Description: You as a translator run a term extraction and now you would like to fill in the corresponding translation for a term in the candidate list editor.
You have four ways to fill in the target cells for the candidates:
- Typing it in: You can simply type one or more target-language equivalents (translations) in the target cell for a candidate. If you want to enter two or more translations, separate them with a semicolon (;).
- Dragging from the term base hit: If the term bases returned one or more hits for the current candidate, they are displayed in the lower-right corner of the candidate list editor tab. If there are multiple hits, they are listed in the left side of the Term base results panel. You can either click a hit to display its details, or you can move up and down in the list using the Ctrl+Up arrow and Ctrl+Down arrow key shortcuts. You can select text in this entry, and drag it to the target cell.
- Dragging from the Occurrences list: At the lower-left corner in the candidate list editor, the Occurrences section shows the text where the source term was found during term extraction. If there are no term base hits, or they are not relevant, you can use the context of the term to determine its translation. This is a concordance view. If the source document contains translations, those are also displayed. You can drag selected text from the Occurrences panel to the target cell. If there are multiple occurrences, you can navigate between them using Ctrl+Up arrow and Ctrl+Down arrow.
Note: The Occurrences list starts with concordance hits from the term bases used in the project. These items are displayed with a blue background. Items with an orange background are the occurrences in the source documents.
Note: You can use the same key shortcuts to navigate among the term base hits and the occurrences. You can switch between the two using the Toggle between occurrences and term base results link, or the Ctrl+G key shortcut.
- Repeating the lookup in the term bases of the project: If you click the Lookup terms now icon, the Lookup terms now dialog appears, and memoQ searches through the primary term base or all term bases in the project for possible hits. You can change the term bases in the project and then run Lookup terms now... to get different results from the ones you got with the initial term extraction.
