Alyissa: I don't understand the difference between adding a term pair to the "fragment base" vs. the "glossary". What is the difference in their functionality?
It depends on what you want. The glossary is a simple text file that does not allow for much "fine-tuning" nor for fuzzy matches. However, you can use regular expressions in it, or add synonyms to an entry. The memory for fragments is a TMX file for words and subsegments. It allows for far better fine-tuning and subsegment matches, important when you use Auto-Assembling.
Unless you use regexes, I suggest you use the memory for fragments for both words and fragments. And if you use regexes, create a glossary that you use exclusively for regular expressions. Synonyms can be added to the memory for fragments as well, albeit not in the same entry.
I think that you're very honest and moderate in your answer this time. That's good! No hysteric shouting about glossaries in your posting. Perhaps you've learned something? The caveat is of course in the phrase does not allow for much "fine-tuning". As if she would know what you mean (and if it would be relevant ;)). And by the way, what do you mean with these quotation marks? Don't you mean real fine-tuning?
Thanks for your effort! On behalf of me personally. Mine. As in moi.
