Hello,

how can I change the settings for a TM in Translator's Workbench (8.0 / Trados 2007) to display not only source, target, date etc., but also name of the file where the segment comes from?

Thanks!

Text fields Jan 11, 2010

Hi Tomas,
to do this, you will have to use text fields that will be stored with the individual TUs. The text fields can store information, such as the document name, number, version etc.
You can create the corresponding fields in Workbench under File > Setup... > Fields tab.

OK, I see, but how do I make TW "know" that the new field "file" (example) with attribute "filename" (example) should display the filename?

TM Maintenance Jan 12, 2010

Hi Tomas,
I may be exactly wrong as they may be a more automated way, but the way I do it is to use Maintenance, filter out all the new segments after a translation is finished and add the new field value manually. This is much easier in Studio where you can use the Batch Edit feature.

You could do this using the TWB Project settings dialog; when opening a new file to translate, you can enter the file name in your file text field. No further automation.
I'd sort of advise against this as the space for displaying these fields' values is rather limited. Not worth the trouble. Adding a particular client name or a similar 'tag' would be more rewarding.
