Can Total Recall be used for concordancing?

Can I import a big TMX file into a Total Recall database and use this database for concordancing during a translation session?

1. Activate Total Recall menu (via View > Show Total Recall menu).

2. Open your Total Recall table with the segments from the imported TMX memory - the menu Total Recall > Memory tables.

3. Use TR source or TR target buttons that will appear in the search buttons bar at the top to look up the words in your table.

Thanks. It worked.


I found this gigantic collection of patents (DE > EN) at Michael's site. I want to use it for concordancing when working from DE > NL. (The EN can give me info about the meaning/resolve ambiguity of the DE.)

How should I set this up?

Simple import the DE > EN files and use the TM source button? Or should I open all TMX files and replace:

<tuv xml:lang="en">



<tuv xml:lang="nl">

It's not possible to map EN to NL during import of the TMX to the TR table, is it? 

BTW: For those who are interested in the patents repository, it's this one:

If you recall the Total Recall table via Total Recall > Recall memory... menu, you can define your language pair in the Total Recall options panel that pops up.
