The Translate and Dictionary feature

To use the Translate feature, simply select some text and press ctrl+J to replace with translation. Select a word press ctrl+D to bring out a meaning list bubble and then you can press space bar or 1, 2, 3 …. to insert a meaning.

Alternatively you can also use WIN+CTRL+J to access it while CTRL+J is assigned to another preview option.

Translate current segment or next segment in CATs

In SDL Trados, MemoQ, etc, press CTRL+ALT+J will get the current segment translated, press CTRL+ALT+K translates next segment.

Simple Glossary and pre-translation

Simple Glossary is a simple and easy alternative to dinosaur applications like MultiTerms. It can help you keep consistency with translation of special terms.

Add a term
Select a phrase, press CTRL+D and then press letter “a” to add a term to the Glossary.
Fetch translation
Next time when you select the previously added phrase and press CTRL+D, results from Glossary will show first (Setup->Dictionary & Glossary->Always show Glossary results). Press Space bar, the selected text will be replaced.
To enable pre-translation, go to setup->Dictionary & Glossary->Pretranslate using Glossary.
Select some source text, and press ctrl+j. If the source text contains a term that is in the glossary, the translation in the glossary will be used. In this way, we can help machine translate better. The returned results always use the correct translation for the terms in the Glossary.
Edit glossary
The glossary file is a regular Excel file. Go to Setup->Dictionary & Glossary->Open in excel to open the file in Microsoft Excel. You can then add, delete, import or export data using Excel.

Paste Plain Text

Copy some text from anywhere and press CTRL+SHIFT+V instead of the usual CTRL+V to paste the plain text. Believe me, nine out of ten times you will need plain text: when pasting from a webpage, you will need the pasted text to fit into where you work instead of keeping the original font or color properties.

Accessing search engines

Press F1, F2, F3 …. while the Dictionary or Translate preview popup is on to launch a search engine in your web browser.
