Dear All,

I am using Tag Editor to translate a huge Excel file. I have pre-translated, but is there a way of finding the first (and next) sections to be translated, ie, those which have not matched 100%?

Any help would be appreciated

Open Next no 100%/Get Apr 4, 2007

Hi Paul,

Use the commands Open Next no 100%/Get (keyboard shortcut Alt+Ctrl+Home) and Set Close Next no 100% Open Get (keyboard Alt+Ctrl+Num+), respectively. This way TagEditor will go through the file ignoring all 100% matches.
Alternatively, you can mark them as Xtranslated segments (they will appear greyed out), but I suppose for what you're trying to do, either method will be fine.

On a note aside, I would advise you to familiarise yourself with the tools you're working with, e.g. by reading some Trados tutorials. This is the only way you can work with them effectively - starting with the most basic functions you were enquiring about today. All the best!
