Hello,

A client of mine sent me a TM (*.txt) to work in a new project. So I created a new TM and I imported my client's TM and my own TMs. But my TMs have more than one user, so I want to create a filter that will assign a penalty to all users, EXCEPT to my client's. I mean, I don't want to assign a penalty to a one particular user, I want to penalty to be assigned to ALL BUT one user.

Is this possible? If so, how?

Thanks

Claudia

I think that only the "Align!" and "MT!" users can be penalised.

I would try this, using the Maintenance feature, search and replace all "Created by" and "Modified by" except the one you want to keep to "Align!" or "MT!".

Edit:

PS. if you don't want to change the users, you could also add a Text field to all translation units not created by the particular user and then apply filter settings.

I hope I can explain myself.

You mean you wish to work with your client's TM and "user X" TM only, is that so?

In order to get the "user X" TM, open your large TM (where "user X" is), and:

FILE > EXPORT > Select "Created by" > click ADD > Add "user X" name > Click OK...

...and save as "whatever". Now you have a TM (.txt) with "user X" only.

Create a new TM, and import your client's TM and "whatever"'s. That's it!


Did I make it clear?

How do I assign a Text Field (an attribute) to all segments? Oct 18, 2008

Thank you Carvallo, but I do want to use all translation units. However, since there are hundreds of 100% matches in my own TMs, I don''t want Trados to see insert those 100% matches automatically--although I do want Trados to automatically insert the 100% matches from my client's TM.

I also prefer to use a single TM, with all the terms (rather than using a secondary TM as the Concordance TM)--I think it'll be faster that way.

Daniel, I don't want to change the name of the user because I want to see who created each TU, but I think you're second idea is exactly what I should do. I'd need to assign an attribute (is that the term?) to all existing TU's in my client's TM; I just don't know how to do that. Filters and definitions are my Achilles Heel of Trados.
