8.2. Review Mode

Use Review Mode to review your translation using Felix. Review Mode essentially functions like Translation Mode (see Translation Mode), except that instead of looking up source text to translate, you are looking up translations for review.

To enter review mode, click the half-green, half-white toolbar button on the Felix toolbar.

In Review mode, the colors of the toolbar buttons are reversed.

Note

In PowerPoint 2007 and later, the menu and toolbar appear in the Add-Ins tab. In PowerPoint 2003, an asterisk in square brackets ([*]) appears to the right of the menu item. This helps you tell that you are in Review Mode.

Each of the Review Mode functions is described below.

8.2.1. Look up a Translation

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

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.

8.2.1.2. Look up the current selection

Toolbar button Look up current selection
Menu command Lookup

You can find a word or phrase in your translation memory to see how you have translated it in the past. This feature is called “concordance.” To find the concordance for a word or phrase, select it and then select Felix ‣ Find Concordance.
