Searching for Translation Memory Entries
To access the TM Strings tab, click on Strings in the left side menu under "... More" and click Strings.
Alternatively, navigate to your project's Settings page > General > Manage Translation Memory, and you will be directed to the same page with the specific project preselected in the Project filter.
You have two options to search for TM entries: type your source text in the search box and click the Search button, or utilize the various filters to refine your search results.
All plural forms are grouped if a TM entry is pluralized. You can expand this entry using the arrow button on the right-hand side and see translations in all plural forms for a specific target language.
The available filters (the ones shown above) allow you to find easily:
TM entries that belong to one or more projects
TM entries that belong to a specific TM group
TM entries that contain specific source text (filter: Source Text)
TM entries that are related to a specific target language (filter: Target Language - you can search for TM entries across multiple languages at once)
TM entries that were added to the project's TM by a specific user as a result of a new translation submitted (filter: Translated by)
TM entries that were last used before or after a specific date
TM entries that were added to the project's TM by a specific user as a result of reviewing translations or TMX file upload (filter: Added by)
TM entries that were added to the project's TM via translation, review, or TMX file upload (filter: Added via)
TM entries that were added to the project’s TM before or after a specific date via translation, review, or TMX file upload (filter: Added before, Added after)
Sorting Translation Memory Suggestions
On the TM strings page, there are two available options for sorting your results:
Sort by: Relevance
This option sorts translation memory entries based on their relevance to the source text. That way, you can focus on the entries that closely match your source text, helping you find the most relevant entries quickly.
Sort by: Last Updated
This option sorts the translation memory entries based on their last update timestamp. Entries recently modified will appear at the top, making it easier to identify and review the most recent changes to your translation memory suggestions.
