Dear colleagues,

Does anybody know if it is possible to join/split segments inside a Déjà Vu translation memory? As far as I can see, there is no such function, or have I overlooked it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards,

Olaf

These are the shortcuts to join/split segments, you can also use the chain link icons on the toolbar. Is that what you're looking for?

Thanks for your message, but as far as I know, those shortcuts only work inside project files. What I want to do is join/split segments inside a TM.

Split - Merge Mar 19, 2013

I'm not sure how many segments you want to merge/split if there are only a few I would do it within the project file and then update the TM. If it's major surgery, you could use an SQL statement, depending on which strings you want to merge/split.

SQL statement Mar 19, 2013

Hi again Bernard,

The TM is actually derived from a TMX file the client sent me, so there is no corresponding project file.

But if you know an SQL statement for joining/splitting segments in the TM, that would be great!

Kind regards,

Olaf

import into Project Mar 19, 2013

Hi Olaf,

You can import TMX (as a translatable) file into a project, use Join/Split buttons / shortcuts (and any source / target editing) and then send to a new TM.

Selcuk

Thanks, Selcuk! May 18, 2013

Yes, I think that's what I am going to end up doing... A pity there is no join/segment funcion in the TM, it would be handy...

By the way, sorry for my late reply, I was being side-tracked and then forgot about this thread!

Kind regards,

Olaf
