The terminology you use in your translations is very important. Marketing departments as well as technical ones often struggle at retaining the same language among their different publications.
Redokun already helps you keep a higher level of consistency by storing everything you translate and suggesting it for later use.
However, sometimes teams have a need for deeper control over terminology and translations.
Redokun’s TM Manager is the ultimate solution for this need.
The TM Manager allows you to:
1. Go to the “Translation Memory” page and click on “TM Manager.”
2. Type the word/sentence (1), indicate if you are searching for a source text segment or a translation (2), and select the language pair (3).
3. Redokun lists all the matches found in your Translation Memories (TMs)
1. Search for words/text segments inside your TMs (see section above)
2. Click on the button “n° occurrences” to list all the occurrences of a given sentence in both your documents and imported TM files.
From the list of occurrences, you can open a document on the first occurrence found in the page indicated by clicking on “Go to first segment,” and from there you’ll be able to edit its translation.
N.B. When a text segment is used in more pages you’ll be able to jump to the first occurrence of any page where the text segment was used.
1. Click on “Go to first segment”
2. Redokun opens the Web Editor exactly where the first entry is listed. From there you can quickly edit the translation.
If the text segment is present more times in the document, Redokun will pop-up a message that offers to update all the entries in the document.
Click “Update” to overwrite all the translated segments.
With the TM Manager, you can also update a single translation in all the documents with a few clicks.
1. Identify the text segment you want to edit and click on “Update.”
2. Edit the sentence and then click “Replace # occurrences.”
The text segment has been updated in all the documents (active, locked, and archived).
From the TM Manager, you can Hide and Unhide translations by simply clicking on the button “Hide” or “Unhide.”
This is very helpful for when you want to change the terminology in your documents, while keeping the same translation in previously translated files.
Hidden suggestions will be highlighted in yellow.
