Hi

Two quick questions which I hope somebody can help me with. I use Trados version 8, Office 2003 and Vista.

Why might the find and replace function not work in a translation memory? I have never been able to use it when I have ever tried. It would be particularly useful as there is a recurring error in translation units I would like eliminate.

Why has TagEditor suddenly decided I use a different keyboard to the one I am actually using? This started happening about two or three days ago.

Thanks for any help.

Ian

Perhaps in TWB/File/Maintenance, when you filled in Find and Replace data and clicked on Begin search, you did not set Change to All translation units. At least I did this mistake once to notice no change.

Nobody know why my keyboard changes from SPanish to (presumably) English when I use TagEditor?

You probably enabled automatic keyboard switching Jul 23, 2010

Check under Tools - Options - Edit. You probably have the option "Switch keyboards automatically" checked.

Thanks, Walter. You were right, except I didn't enable it, or not consciously
