Auto-complete in the Desktop Editor

Auto-complete is now available in the Desktop Editor. The suggestions will be matches from the translation memory, term base, and machine translation engine attached to that job.

This feature has various advantages. Desktop Editor users will find that:

  • They are able to work more efficiently because, from within a segment, they can immediately enter suggestions from the CAT Pane.

  • They make fewer typing errors.

  • Their translations are more consistent because they will use more terms from the TM and TB.

  • There will be fewer QA warnings about terminology inconsistency and spelling error warnings.

This feature is already available in the Memsource Web Editor and the new Desktop Editor version will work in the same way. As in the Web Editor, this feature does not support non-space languages (Japanese, Chinese, Korean). The Auto-complete help center article explains how this feature works.
