Regarding SDL Trados 2009 SP3, I have now worked with it enough to begin to uncover some issues. I acknowledge that each of the following issues may be due to the fact that I am using an Atom processor (I am working on an upgrade now :0). Nonetheless,
1. In previous jobs, I noticed that when I am using the segment filter, there are times (perhaps 1 in 5) when pasting text to the target side, the text does not show to be updated. In fact, the pasted text is there, but it does not show up until I do another query or reset all of the filter segments. When the segment filter is set to “All Segments”, one does not see this behaviour.
2. I have noticed that when working extensively with the segment filter, the segment count (segments untranslated, segments translated but not confirmed, segments confirmed) becomes inaccurate. For example, when all of the segments are translated, a completion ration of “115%” will be shown, and an uncomplete reading of “-15%” will be shown. (I wish I had taken a screenshot of this reading; the next time I see it I certainly will.)
3. On the last job, I noticed that after doing several global search-and-replace operations, sometimes hitting Ctrl+Z not only undoes the last thing typed in, but also a seemingly random number of the last Ctrl+Z (undo) operations. If one does several global Ctrl-H operations, then hits Ctrl+Z, you can see the elevator bar scrolling up, then up from the bottom again, and perhaps a few more times. Ordinarily in productivity applications, Ctrl-Z only undoes the last operation.
4. Where the above issue may have impacted my last job was that, there is the possibility that the above behaviour actually does not reverse the confirmed status of the segments that are rolled back. Therefore, segments with untranslated terms will show as translated; which is how I submitted them to the client.
So, those are the issues that I experienced. None of them are critical, and I have learned to work around them. Nonetheless, I believe they are all reproducible, given the right steps to reproduction.
