Hello everyone,

I have SDL Edit 2007 SP3 (Build 7044), which I am using to translate a file from English to Brazilian Portuguese. There are segments that need to be changed around (expanded or shrinked) and I don't know how to do that here. Can anyone shed a light on this for me, please?

Many thanks,

You only have to highlight both segments on the target side, right-click on them and select the Join segment option.

I hope this helps.
