I've received some really untidy TMs, with a very large number of needless tags scattered across each of 30,000 or so segments and the first thing I'd like to do is strip all the tags from them, what's the simplest and fastest way to do this?
(btw... have both Trados 2007 and 2009)
If trados doesn't have a solution for that, you could just take a txt export, strip tags and reimport. I'm assuming these tags are enclosed in the usual < > brackets. There's a sed script floating around on the net that can do this on a file of any size in seconds. All you need to do is convert the basic trados tags in order to preserve them (TrU, CrD, Seg L= etc.), and then run the tag stripper script and convert the needed tags back.
Of course if Olifant can do what you need then that's probably more convenient for most people than screwing around with command lines (after installing gnuwin32 if you're on Windows...)
