Translation Memory Settings Dialog Box > Language Resources

Use the Language Resources page of the Translation Memory Settings dialog box to modify language resources lists in the translation memory. These lists are used in conjunction with the segmentation rules in translation memory processing and to identify untranslatable content. Language resource are based only on the source languages.

To display the Translation Memory Settings dialog box, select the translation memory in the Translation Memories view, right-click and select Settings. Select Language Resources from the Translation Memory Settings dialog box navigation tree to display the Language Resources settings.

 

NOTE

Changes made to the language resource lists in a translation memory are not reflected in the language resource template in the navigation pane.

Description

Template

(Server-based TMs only)

If you want to apply or change the currently applied language resource template to the translation memory, click Browse to display the Select Language Resource Template dialog box where you can select the template. When applied the template is linked to the server-based translation memory and when the language resources in the template are updated, the language resources in the translation memory are also updated.

 

Server-based language resource templates are multilingual, therefore when you select a template, the appropriate source language resources are applied to each source language you selected for the server-based translation memory.

 

NOTE

If you want to edit the language resources in the translation memory, click Edit to break the link with the template and edit the lists on this page. When the template is updated, the translation memory will no longer be updated.

 

Language

Select the source language for which you want to specify language resources. When you select a source language, the resources below only pertain to the selected source language. The source languages available for selection are the languages you specified on the Language Pairs page of this wizard.

Resources

The language resource lists displayed here pertain only to the currently selected source language in the Language box.
