Hi again

I have *.itd (SDL Edit) files for translation and want to process them in T2009.

When opening in T2009, the files consist of 100% draft segments (to be ignored) and fuzzy segments (to be edited).

Problem is, I am not able to skip the 100% draft segments (I have to go through them one by one). I would need to do one of the following:

a) find a command that let me skip 100% draft segments and go to the next non-100% draft segment.

b) change the status of all 100% draft segments to confirmed

c) find a way to extract all the 100% draft segments (but not non-100% draft segments) to a TM, then run pre-translate with "confirmed 100% matches" checked.

Has anyone out there experience with *.itd files?

CTRL+G Jul 9, 2009

is the jump function.
And you can globally confirm.
Quote from online-help:
NOTE
You can also confirm a group of translations by holding down the [CTRL] key and clicking on the segment number column to select the rows you want to confirm. Right-click in the segment number column of the last selected row and select Change Segment Status > Translated/Translation Approved/Signed Off from the shortcut menu

Sometimes rtfm really helps...

SDLX Switcboard Jul 9, 2009

I am using SDLX 2006, but this might still applies to SDLX 2009, I hope:

b) You can use SDL Utilites (can be accessed through SDLX Switcboard) to lock all 100% matched, then open the ITD file, select all the segments and right click and select Confirm/Unconfirm > Confirm. That's way only 100% matches will be confirmed. Use the same process to unlock all the segments.

c) Create a new TM, then import your ITD file(s) into this TM, select to import only 100% Matched Segments.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your input, Jerzy. Wbrew pozorem, I usually take a look in the help files before posting on this forum;)

Global confirm doesn't really solve the problem as the 100% drafts are spread all over the files. The files have appr. 100,000 x 100 % drafts and 15,000 x fuzzy drafts, so obviously it would be too time-consuming to select and confirm all the 100% drafts rows manually.

If there is a way to globally select only 100% drafts, that would of course do the trick.

I will try out the jump function as soon as I get back to my office.

Correct me if I am wrong, but there are no such things as SDLX 2009. Trados/SDLX has been integrated in the new SDL Trados Studio 2009 that solves some of our old problems and create quite a bit of new ones.

There is a global "Sign off" function Jul 9, 2009

So after you jumped over the whole text and edited the fuzzies you may want to open the file in review modus and use the functions there. A global sign off for al sements in the file is certainly possible. Adn sign off means more than confirm, so it should also include confirmation.
And if not - why donźt you open the itd afterwards in SDLX and use the tool mentioned by tvtruc? This is what I would do in case of doubt.
And BTW, I did not mean you have not looked on forum on manual - sometimes however people tend to forget, that an online help or manual do exist. It was more a general remark.

Hi Bjørnar,

You can filter fuzzy match segments in SDL Trados Studio 2009. Please follow these instructions:

1. Open your ITD in the Editor.
2. Go to View > Toolbars > Display Filter. You will then see the Display Filter toolbar appear.
3. Under Display, select Fuzzy Matches. You can also filter for segments containing a specific word or phrase.
4. Press Enter to apply the filter settings

Thsi will filter out all Fuzzy matches for translation.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Thank you, Jerzy, Gareth and tvtruc Jul 9, 2009

Gareth certainly provided the textbook solution here, but jumping would also have gotten me very far.

It is also a good idea to process the files in SDLX 2007, which I still have a license for under T2009.

Thanks a lot all of you for saving me a lot of headache. (I promise that I eventually will get down to reading all the documentation)

display only unlocked segments Jul 10, 2009

The DISPLAY bar is a great tool. However, an option for displaying only "Unlocked Segments" could be a valuable extension.
