Dear colleagues,

I hope, you can help me how to do a quite time-consuming task quickly (in fact, lack of some good advice it seems to be almost impossible for me).

A client claimed that she lost the Hungarian accents (ö. ő. ü. ű... -> o, o, u, u) when she copied sentences from the pdf of the target text into the memory (I think, she used the exported txt file when editing the memory). She asked me to go through the memory to make sure that everything is OK with the accents. However, revising 8000+ segments manually (or 'visually') is a little bit too much for this night...

The only solution I can imagine is to export ONLY the target segments and to copy them into MS Word, where the Hungarian spell checker should show me if something wrong.

Can anyone help me, how to do this? Or any other idea? [It should be noted, that our language contains o, u etc. as well, so Find and Replace can't help.]

Thanks in advance,
L. Egerhazi

You can export as tmx and then Heartsome TMX Editor (paid) can convert to csv. Olifant (free) may be able to it as well, I am not sure.

Having it as csv, you can open it in Excel, delete the unwanted column and spell check directly in Excel, or export to Word, if Word is your desired spellchecker.

Well, I downloaded Olifant, and although it cannot export to csv, I could select the target column then I pasted it as "unformatted Unicode".

Thanks again and good night!
