I need to change the order of these words in a glossary, so that they appear Eng-Sp. It´s in Word. Is there any way to do it?

Bradicardia: Bradycardia.
Cardiomegalia: Cardiomegaly.
Cardiomiopatía: Cardiomyopathy.
Coágulo: Clot.
Congestive heart failure: Insuficiencia cardiaca respiratoria.
Diástole: Diastole.
Embolia: Embolism.
Endocarditis: Endocarditis.
Estenosis: Stenosis.
Fibrilación: Fibrillation.

Thanks a lot!
Pat

You can:
- replace ": " with ":" (remove the space after the colon)
- convert the list to table using colon as the separator
- switch the columns (copy and paste)
- convert the table back to text using colon as the separator
- replace ":" with ": "

If you have this program, replace : with a tab (^t), copy-paste to Excel, reorder in Excel (also alphabetic if necessary), copy-paste back to Word and convert the table into text (Table menu>Convert>Table in text), then replace the tab with a colon. Or something along those lines.

Assuming you have only one colon+space in each entry, do a search-and-replace (activate "more options"):

1. Find what:
^p
Replace with:
^l^l

2. Find what:
(^l)(*)(: )(*)(^l)
Replace with:
\1\4\3\2\5
with "wildcards" enabled

3. Find what:
^l^l
Replace with:
^p

If it doesn't work, perhaps your version of MS Word requires that you use (\: ) instead of simply (: ).

Let me know if the method works for you.

Hi Philippe, Hi Samuel

Thanks a lot for your answers. I´ve already tried Hynek´s suggestion and it worked, but it´s good to know there´s more than one way to do this, and try the one you find easier.
