Hi,

I am translating a large financial document, which contains lots of tables and dates in the format mm/dd/yy.
I would like to find an easy way to replace all dates with dd/mm/yy.

The automatic replacement feature of Trados works ok, but only when there is something else than the date in the segment.

1) Can I force Trados to "translate" segments which only contain dates?
2) Has anyone already found a way to automatically replace mm/dd by dd/mm in MS Word? (macro, regular experession, etc. ?)

Thanks for your help!
