I try to replace a sequence of chars through all my TM, but in target language. In DVX menus I was able to find only Find/Replace options for the source segments, but I need to change some words in my target language column of the TM.

Is it possible?

PS. By the way, does anyone know how to type the dash (hard, or `long' hyphen) instead of the usual (short) hyphen when working with DVX?

Yes, it's possible. Open the database and change the source language (box up to the left) to your target language. If you want to see your source language while replacing, change the target language to your source language (box up to the right).

And, Bob's your uncle....

Hi Kirill,

That's 2 questions.

Q1: I haven't tried it (it may be one of the drawbacks of the multilingual capability of the databases). But I think there is a workaround: open the MDB. At the top of the window you see two pull-down windows showing the source and target languages. My quick fix: switch them, so that your target language is given as the source language. Then you can do your S/R process.

Q2: Which long dash? The one I use (German & British format) is obtained by holding down ALT and pressing 0150 on the numerical keypad. For the longer one (US format), try ALT-0151. And to find what to type for other special symbols, call up the keyboard grid in DVX (CTRL-K), select the character you want and look what the window says at the bottom right hand corner.

Thank you, Victor :) Jan 9, 2006

I'll try to do it via MDB format - and thank you for the advice on dashes, I've checked it with Ctrl+K, and yes, they are Alt+.

Thank you very much for your help
