I am through a "mega" project (over 45.000 segments) where there are well over 3.000 that begin as shown in the figure "max-width:800px;" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/proz/image/upload/v1468762768/rv3wz1nlc8ze4i3w9okr.jpg" alt="memoQ note"

(Obviously, the "note" following this heading requires individual attention in each case), therefore the idea is just translating this heading "as-is", except that "NOTE" must be changed to "NOTA"

Is there any possibility of translating ONCE and propagate it through ALL of the occurrences?.

TIA

Psicutrinius

make the repeated part a non-translatable or make it into a tag Jul 18, 2016

Hello Marcel
I think the purists' way would be be to turn "max-width:800px;" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/proz/image/upload/v1468762768/rv3wz1nlc8ze4i3w9okr.jpg" alt=" (including the quotes) into a tag using Regex, so that it will be seen just as a piece of formatting, and thus conserved for the target document but ignored for translation purposes, but if you want a quick and dirty way you can either make it into a non-translatable or filter on segments containing "max-width:800px;" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/proz/image/upload/v1468762768/rv3wz1nlc8ze4i3w9okr.jpg" alt=" and copy source to target and then translate just the part in memoQ note
