Hi everybody,

I have SDL Trados 2009 SP1 and sometimes I have already translated something in capital letters so when it appears again in small letters, the TM gives me the same translation, but for now I still need to rewrite it manually in small letters as the second time the segment appears is in small letters. It is not a huge problem but I think it would be great if there was a way to automatically change the capital letters into small letters. I have tried but couldn't find one. So if you have a tip on this, it would be great and could also make life even easier for other people as me! Thanks a lot!

Philippe

same as in Word Jan 23, 2010

Hi Philippe
Select the text and then use the same short cut as in Word:
Shift+F3
It toggles between lower and upper case and capital initial letters
