I'm working with Trados 2009.
I have translated the footnote, which is in a separate segment.
How can I transfer the footnote number to the target segment?

If the footnote is represented as a code on the left (source) side of the screen, you can copy it to the target side by pressing ctrl+alt+down arrow to bring up the placeable list, Up/Down arrow (to select), Enter (to insert). Alternatively, you can copy the code using cut and paste.

How can I transfer the footnote number to the target segment?

You don't need to do anything special, except obviously copy the footnote tag into the target segment.
Use CTRL-comma to transfer the tag, translate the next segment containing the footnote text and that's it.

You can check the result by doing a preview or opening the real-time preview window.
