I have recently reorganized my TMs and merged together a lot of them.
I now notice that there are many double entries.

How can I eliminate those without doing it manually?

Thanks in advance.

Click on the TM Editor icon, then choose the Translation Memory tab, click Tools, Special filters (never mind that it is gray), and choose Mark Redundant TUs (same source + target). WF will mark them and you can delete them all at the same time. You can then choose the filter "Mark Redundant TUs (same source)", and check those items that have multiple nonidentical translations.

That's great! May 21, 2008

Thank you, Attila!

I was not aware WF had this function and thought I needed an extra tool...

In my older version (4.22) I found the button "compress" on the TM tab which took me directly to this feature. It found really a lot of double entries. Then I had reorganized the whole thing, et voilà....!, it has got much thinner. Good for me and my PC...

Have a nice evening!

You do not need to enter the txt file. When you open Word simply open the WF ribbon and press the icon to the left of the WF Setup button (or simply press Ctrl+Alt+M x2 where you press M two times in quick succession). Then follow Attila's instructions above.
