Hello all,

One of my client sent me validated texts to use as reference.
I've aligned them with WinAlign and I'm about to import it into my TM.
In the creation user field, I've entered "client validated"

Even though I've entered this "client validated" field, I'm afraid that my colleagues, also working on this TM, might change these units of translation.

Is there any way to block only these units in the TM?
I know there's a way to set a whole TM as read-only but is there a way to flag those units as "not editable?

Thank you for your help!

Nicolas

project password Jan 16, 2009

Maybe you can create project passwords for attribute field and value in File/Setup.
So these TUs with password-protected attributes are protected against unauthorised writing.
When you open the TM with a project password, you can only read protected TUs that don't match the password criteria.

I'm not sure how to do all that but it sounds like a very good idea.
I'll try a couple of things and tell you how it works out.

Thank you for your help!!
