Configure Machine Translation

To configure machine translation:

  2. On the Preferences dialog, click Machine Translation under General Preferences.
  3. Select one of the following:
    • Show MT results in TM Lookup when there is no TM match, to show machine translated content without local or remote TM matches.

    • Always show MT results in TM Lookup, to show machine translated content with leveraged segments. TM matches display in TM Lookup with the MT matches.

  4. Select check boxes to allow All unedited segments in active document to be leveraged with MT, and to Remove MT score from score column when a segment is edited.
  5. Select Enable DeepL Pro, Enable Google Translator, Enable Microsoft Translator, Enable SYSTRAN Pure Neural Server,or Enable WorldLingo as the primary machine translator. You can enable all five, but you can only designate one as the primary machine translator.
