With Concordance, you can look for words and expressions in translation memories and LiveDocs corpora in your project. This is useful when there is no match for the entire segment while you are translating a document. Concordance will give you a list of entries where the search expression was found.

When you find an entry that helps, you can insert text into your translation from the Concordance window.

Concordance can also help you find the translation of a word or expression that's not in your term bases. If there are several entries that contain the expression, Concordance guesses the translation from the target text of the same entries.

You can also edit the entries that Concordance finds in translation memories.

How to get here

  1. Open a project. Open a document in the translation editor.

  2. In the source or target segment, select the text you need to look for.

  3. Press Ctrl+K.

    Or: In the Translation ribbon, click Concordance.

    If you don't select text, the Concordance window opens empty. You can type your expression in Search for field and start looking from there.

  4. Concordance automatically detects if you are looking for a source or target word, and opens the window with the default settings:

Three-column view for concordance with possible concordance options to choose from.
