I have a big project in which 20 percent of words are repeated. i would like to prepare a glossary from them.
I was wondering how to export repeated words using Trados or any other application.
I know I can export repeated SEGMENTS but it is not the same.

Possible sollution: replace spaces with end of paragraph symbols Apr 14, 2005

Replying myself
there is one solution I worked out:
1. Copy the text into Word
2. Find and replace all spaces with end of paragraph symbols
3. Save new file and exit Word
4. Analyse the new file with Trados Workbench.
5. Export frequently repeated segments (now segments=words).

The output file needs to be cleaned up
How to clean it:

1. Open it with Word
2. Sort the parahraphs (lines) alphabetically
3. Delete unnecessary lines
4. Find and replace strings in brackets with nothing.


Well.... it works, but of course it doesn't help with terms longer than one word.

It requires some tweaking, but the results are very good. I use it routinely in glossary preparation.
