Searching in TDBs

Before you can search in TDBs, you have to ensure that a main TDB has been assigned to the document (see Defining the Main TDB).

There are three ways to search in TDBs:

       Automatic searching:

To automatically search in TDBs when a TU is opened, check the relevant checkbox in the Document options dialog box (see TDB Search Options) or in the Automation options dialog box (see Automation Options).

       Manual searching:

To manually search for a source segment in the TDBs specified, either execute the menu command: MetaTexis | Terminology database (TDB) | Search for source text in TDBs (default shortcut: Alt+Shift+Ins), or on the menu command: MetaTexis | Terminology database (TDB) | Search for source text both in TMs and TDBs (default shortcut: Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Ins).

This command can only be executed if a TU is open and the cursor is located in the translation box.

       Manual search for all non-translated segments in a document:

To manually search for all non-translated segments in a document, execute the menu command: MetaTexis | Translation memory (TM) | Pre-translate whole document (default shortcut: Alt+Ctrl+Shift+R). In the dialog box shown, check the Search terminology databases checkbox (see Searching in TDBs).
