In memoQ, I have about 200 pretranslated segments, looking like this:


I want to change them to this:

Fragmente (XXX)
Fragmente (YYY)
Fragmente (ZZZ)

The source text does not have parentheses, but I want them in the translation.
Is there any way to achieve this in one fell swoop, via the replace window perhaps?

MemoQ has a regex function for Find but I am not sure if it can do the Replace you want.

One way you could do it is to export the file as a bilingual Word document, use Word's Find & Replace to make the changes to the target and reimport the Word file into MemoQ. Word's F&R dialogue has powerful and relatively simple commands.
