7.1 Look up a sentence

Look up a segment in your Felix memory and glossaries. You can select the next segment automatically, or select a segment to look up yourself.

Select and look up the next sentence

Toolbar button Look up next sentence
Menu command Lookup Next
Keyboard shortcut Alt + →

Place the cursor at the beginning of the text you wish to look up, then run the command using one of the methods above. The next segment of text is automatically selected, and sent to Felix as a query. If Felix is not currently running, it will be launched automatically.

Look up the current selection

Toolbar button Look up current selection
Menu command Lookup
Keyboard shortcut Alt + L

Select the text you wish to look up, then run the command using one of the methods above. The current selection is automatically sent to Felix as a query. If Felix is not currently running, it will be launched automatically.

Tip: To extend the sentence lookup (e.g. to translate two or more sentences as a single unit), press Ctrl + →. To look up the current segment as a translation rather than a source segment (to correct or review your translation), hold down the Control key while performing the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + → to look up the next translation, and Ctrl + Alt + L to look up the selection as a translation.
