Adaptation knowledge base

An adaptation knowledge base contains the related adaptations between the source language text and the target language text. When Adapt It encounters a hole, it searches the knowledge base for previous adaptation of a source language word or phrase. When it finds an adaptation, Adapt It inserts the adaptation into the target text portion of the hole and moves on to the next location.

It is possible that there may be two or more adaptation entries for a given source text word or phrase. When Adapt It encounters this situation, it relies on you to select to decide the best adaptation for the context. See Using the Choose Translation dialog box for more information.

When Adapt It cannot find an adaptation in the knowledge base, the application expects you to type in a new adaptation. When you press Enter, Adapt It stores the new adaptation in the knowledge base for future reference.
