While translating in Wordfast Pro, if there is more than one match from the translation memory, they are shown in the TM Lookup window. Press Alt + 1 to 8 in Windows or Option + 1 to 8 in MacOS to leverage (i.e. have inserted into the target cell) the first to the eighth match. You can also double-click any match in TM Lookup to leverage it.

If you wish to perform a concordance search, highlight the word and press the F8 key in Windows or fn + F8 in MacOS to do so.

If the shortcuts mentioned above do not work for you, it might be because they are associated with different keyboard keys. Check out Assign or Reassign Shortcut Keys to learn what the keys are and how to change the associated keyboard keys.
