Hi all, I have been wondering if someone has already tried to bulk replace decimal points by decimal commas. I have large files that contain around 1000 words in decimal numbers and I have to open every segment and change each decimal point to a decimal comma. I have tried using the bulk find and replace feature with regular expressions, I have found find all of the occurrences, but I don't know how to replace them... it won't let me... any idea? Have someone else tried the same? Is there a way? Thank you in advance for any hint.

Advanced find and replace in MS Office Dec 6

If your source file is Word, it is quite easy to use the Advanced Find and Replace to insert full stops prior or after translation. Other files do similarly.

I wonder if you do not open all segments, how will you translate in a CAT software.

Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the source files and I won't be working with final target files either.

I know that in Trados Studio, for example, you can bulk insert source text into target segments, is there a similar feature in TW? That would help a bit, but I have not found it yet...
