Hi All,

I am currently translating a Word document in which virtually all sentences are followed by a reference number (e.g. "(...) in most cases.1")

My Translator's Workbench (Trados 2007) is not recognizing the full stop as the end of the segment, since it is followed by a number. I tried to figure out what needed to be changed in the "segmentation rules" tab, but did not manage to solve my problem. Can anyone help me?

Thanks a loticon_smile.gif

Hi Paula,
I know it's bit late, but I came across your question as I was trying to figure out how do the same thing as you i.e. get trados to recognise the full stop after a number.

Anyway, if you didn't manage to figure it out, you need to go in Workbench to File > Setup then click on the "Segmentation Rules" tab and check the box "Number stop".

Dominic

Hi Dominic,

Thank you very much for posting your answer, as I hadn't figured it out at all! I can't believe the answer was that simpleicon_smile.gif
Thanks again!

Can't get number stop to work Apr 9, 2010

I'm using Trados 8.3.0.863 and when I check Number stop, it still segments for example "This is Word 2. And this is not." as one segment and not two.
