# Autotranslatables translation pair in parentheses matched but not translated

**There is a known issue with translation pairs.**

If a translation pair is in parentheses, it matches, but doesn't replace.

Example:

We start with #ab#, a translation pair that replaces the letter A with B

If the rule is simply this:

#ab#

...and the replace order rule is:

$0

..then it matches A and replaces it with B, as expected.

But if the rule is this:

(?:#ab#)

...or just this:

(#ab#)

...and the replace order rule is:

$0

...then it still matches A, but doesn't replace it with B, the "translated" result it produces is still A.

**Workaround**

Using $1 as the replace order rule will give the desired result, A is repalced with B.
