Is it possible to change settings for Prefix matching and Case sensitivity for all entries in a Term base simultaneously or do I have do it one entry at the time? I'm running memoQ Translator Pro 4.2.15.

I think it is possible Sep 27, 2010

I think you can do it.

Try the following:
1. In the Project home (if you have the termbase linked to an open project) or in the Resource Console, select your termbase and click Edit.

2. In the editing mode (which shows lists of terms in two languages), select the entries in which you want to make this change. If all entries, select Termbase > Select all in the menu.

3. Now you can change the values in the drop-down lists shown for each of the languages. Over here I get asked whether I want to make the global change.

Give it a try. I hope this is what you were looking for!
