The Memory Search tool is a way for users to access information stored in the associated project Lilt Memory. This information is broken down into three main elements: Machine Translation suggestions, Translation Memory matches, and Termbase items. When you select a segment within the tool, the Memory Search function will automatically update. You can also search freely for any content by entering text within the editable text box.
You can access this tool by selecting the sidebar option, and clicking the “Memory” icon.
By default, the Memory Search will populate with the full source segment which is active in the tool. You can modify this search as needed within the editable text box.
Depending on how mature the project Lilt Memory is, the segment will be broken down into the following elements:
This item appears in grey in the list, and shows the raw MT suggestion for the given word or segment. If there are no known matches for your segment, this will be the only item which appears on your list.
Translation Memory matches
This is the first item which will appear in orange on the list, and shows any previously translated content which provides a potential translation match, the percentage of matched content, and the user supplying the translation match. TM matches are always ordered according to percentage, with the highest matches appearing at the top.
Selecting a TM match from the sidebar will replace the pre-existing target text (if any) currently in the segment. This is true even when selecting an accepted segment in Review Mode.
If there are any associated Termbases or glossaries uploaded into the Lilt Memory, these items will appear in this list on a word-by-word basis. These items will always have the original source-to-target translation.
Tags are auto-propagated with 100% TM matches. This means that if you change tag positions in a segment and another segment has the same source tags, the target tags will be propagated to match. Note that you must have forward and/or backward auto-propagation turned on in "Settings." 100% or 101% TM matches with the same source text but different source tags will be degraded to 99% matches, while a 100% or 101% TM match with matching source tags is leveraged, the target tags will be leveraged as well.
