AFAIK there are only two commands available: shrink/expand segment. But in (my) most cases they don't work at all. Is there something more powerfull, like "force segment" in Wordfast?
It might be worth mentioning, that "shrink/expand segment" command doesn't work in most cases in Wordfast, too.
I have searched many earlier posts in the Trados Forum, but there is no satysfying answer. Should it mean, there is no such answer at all?

P.S. I'am referring to Trados 6.5 Freelance.

Cheers
Andrzej

Expand segments Nov 15, 2004

Have you pretranslated your document? The Expand segment command only works if you have not pretranslated your document.

Just a thought!

They can't be tranlated or havea paragraph break between them Nov 16, 2004

Hi Andrzej, hi all.

AFAIK it only works if neither of the translation units (TUs)that you want to expand or shrink are translated AND if there is no paragraph break between those TUs.

I hope this helps.

shrink/expand segments trouble May 18, 2007

hi,

I have the same probem with Wordfast:

for example, I have the following segmentation:

Thank you!!
