Hi all,

How can I view segments (source + target text) in a Trados TM, without the word file for it being open?
TIA

Use Olifant Jan 13, 2008

You can use a TM editor, such as Olifant (Okapi Translation Memory Editor; freeware). It also allows you to filter multiple segments, thus spot inconsistencies (multiple translations of the same source segment), convert your TM into different formats, etc.

I thought there was some option in Trados itself Jan 13, 2008

I thought there was some option in Trados itself to view the segments one by one. Like skimming through them. Nothing like that?

Also try ApSic XBench Jan 13, 2008

Just like with Olifant, you can view your TMs, but you can do so much more with XBench. You can also concurrently view several TMs, TDBs, bilingual files, CSV files, etc. For example, you can load a TDB, a TM and the TTX file you are currently translating and seach across these files all at once. It also has an entire quality check suite built into it which I find much better than Trados quality check.

You can download it here at no charge: http://www.apsic.com/en/products_xbench.html

All the best!
