  • Lexicon > Build lexicon > Limit maximum number of words per entry to: 4.

Scope: Current file or All files.

  • Select the Lexicon in the File Navigator and click on Toggle sorting.
  • Sort by 1. Number of words (ascending), 2. Frequency (descending), 3.

Source text (ascending)

  • Start by translating the immediately obvious 2-word and 3-word terms that

occur most frequently

  • Delete all rows with empty targets: Lexicon > Remove entries > All rows with

empty targets
