Auto-Suggest in Wordfast Pro
The Auto-Suggest feature in Wordfast Pro allows users to automatically insert numbers, proper nouns (i.e. words in upper-case), TM sub-segment matches and terminology equivalents from the source to the target cell. This saves time and prevents the user from misspelling proper nouns.
Inserting auto-suggested proper nouns or numbers
To insert a proper noun or number, type the first character of the noun or number in question. A dropdown will appear in the target segment showing auto-suggested options that start with that character. If only one auto-suggestion appears, press thekey to insert it. If there are more than one suggestion, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate suggestion, then press the key.
Inserting auto-suggested terms from your glossary
To insert an auto-suggested term from an active glossary, type the first letter of the source term or the target term in question. A dropdown will appear in the target segment showing all auto-suggested options. If there is only one auto-suggestion, press thekey to insert the term. If there is more than one auto-suggestion, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate term, then press the key.
Configuring auto-suggest options
Auto-suggest options can be configured from the Auto-Suggestion section under General Preferences in the software Preferences.
