In SDLX 2007 SP3, is it possible to export all unlocked segments (confirmed and unconfirmed) to a new SDLX document in order to do a Terminology/QA Check?

Export Mar 4, 2009

Can't you just save your current ITD file under a new file name, confirm all segments in the new file and do your QA check?

No because the file is huge and I haven't worked on most of the segments. I just want to check the segments I've translated.

You don't need to export to QA your own translation Mar 5, 2009

You can do the quality control of just the segments translated by you.
Go to (or click on): QA Check > Options > Segments to include: Translated text

(mark only "Translated text", the other check boxes should be unchecked). I would also recommend to check "Log file > Log misses" (in order to see only what you've missed, not the good things you've done!).

Kind regards

Export to TRADOStag TTX format Mar 5, 2009

If you use the function to export to TRADOStag TTX format, then only the unlocked segments are exported (at least with the 2006 version of SDLX that I have).

It's not a separate .itd file, but at least it is a file with only the unlocked segments and you could easily use this file for proofreading of your segments (assuming that the others are locked).
