Scout menu

Many powerful Scout functions can also be executed via the Scout menu. The commands are explained in detail below:

       Show/Hide translation scout:

By executing this command you can show or hide the Scout. If the automatic alignment is active, the windows of the Scout and of Word will be aligned automatically.

       Show Scout options:

When you execute the command, the Scout Options will be displayed (see below).

       Align Scout window:

When you execute this command the Scout and Word windows will be aligned according to your settings in the General Options or Scout Options.

       Search in source text:

This command triggers the same search that is performed when you open a TU (or when you execute a search for a TU manually).

       Search in translation:

This command triggers the same kind of search as when you open a TU (or when you execute a search for a TU manually), only that the search is done in the translation and not in the source text. This command only makes sense when the database is enabled for inverse searching.

       Search in source text and translation:

This command triggers the same kind of search as when you open a TU (or when you execute a search for a TU manually), only that the search is done both in the source text and in the translation. This command only makes sense when the database is enabled for inverse searching.

       Concordance search in source text:

This command triggers a concordance search for the text selected in the active document in the source text of the TMs and TDBs defined. Concordance search means that only complete words are searched, not parts of words.

       Concordance search in translation:

This command triggers a concordance search for the text selected in the active document in the translation of the TMs and TDBs defined. Concordance search means that only complete words are searched, not parts of words.

       Concordance search in source text and translation:

This command triggers a concordance search for the text selected in the active document in source text and translation of the TMs and TDBs defined. Concordance search means that only complete words are searched, not parts of words.

       String search in source text:

This command triggers a string search for the text selected in the active document in the source text of the TMs and TDBs defined.

       String search in translation:

This command triggers a string search for the text selected in the active document in the translation of the TMs and TDBs defined.

       String search in source text and translation (AND):

This command triggers a string search for the text selected in the active document in the source text and in the translation of the TMs and TDBs defined. Only if the string searched is found both in the source text AND in the translation, the dataset is displayed.

       String search in source text and translation (OR):

This command triggers a string search for the text selected in the active document in the source text and in the translation of the TMs and TDBs defined. All datasets where source text OR translation (or both) contain the text searched, are displayed.
