Simple search in the Concordance docked panel

The following parameters are predefined and cannot be changed in the simple search performed in the Concordance docked panel:

  • Language combination – This parameter is determined by the language combination set for the task.

  • TM Resources – The Project Manager decides, the Translation Memory of which customer(s) should be used in this project.

  • Reverse matches – When the Reverse matches parameter has been enabled, the search returns the match results stored for a reverse language pair than the one set in the workflow.

    For example, when the English (USA) => French (France) language combination has been selected for the workflow, this parameter will return the results available for French (France) => English (USA) search.

  • Language variants – When the Language variants parameter has been enabled, the search returns the match results stored for every variant of language pair selected for the workflow.

    For example, when English (USA) => French (France) has been selected for the workflow, this parameter will return the results available for English (USA) => every French language variant.
