I've used Across a couple of times and have now decided to give it a go full-time. When I first started using Across and getting to understand it, I often exported the texts back to their original format and edited the files further outside of Across. This has meant that some of the translation units in the memory are not ideal.

I have no understanding of SQL or how Across uses the translation memory. I was therefore wondering whether there's a way to delete everything in crossTank so that I can reimport my Trados memory. Or would uninstalling Across and all the SQL entiries in my Windows Control Panel and then reinstalling Across be the best/only solution?

Hi!

Deleting everything in Across is very easy.
Open the crossTank Manager and select the language combination.
Make sure that you select "All results" under the menu tools. Otherwise you only get a maximum of 500 entries per search. Click the Search button without entering any search word. Select all the results and delete them via the toolbar.
Repeat this for all language combinations you have.

Good luck!
Nicole

Thanks Nicole.

That did the trick. It's easy when you know how.

Dear Nicole and Fugee!
I wish to delete all cross tank entries for a particular project. However, it is not possible to start a search without entering a search term. How did you manage to do so?

Thank you very much in advance!icon_smile.gif

Please make sure you have selected "Concordance search" in dropdown list (and not the "similar sentence search").
