Hi all,

I hope I didn't skip an already existing post.
I can't find any option in Trados Prof. 2009 SP2 for the folllowing option:
If I translate several files for the same project and always confirmed every single segment and at some point I want to change an entry in the memory and apply this change in all the previously translated files, where could I do this? I suppose it's somewehre in the batch tasks, but I can't find it.

Many thanks in advance.

Have you found a solution to this problem yet? Feb 7, 2011

Hi,

I have the same problem. If you found a solution back in October, could you share it?

Thanks!

no solution found yet Feb 7, 2011

either it's a topic that doesn't interest much people or it's sth that's that obvious that no one wants to answer.

My "workaround" (it's not a real one) is to enter in each file, search for the concerned segments and change it manually.


kind regards,

Try modifying the memory Feb 7, 2011

I don't think there is a batch edit in Studio that modifies files simultaneously.
One way of doing this though would be to change the segments in the memory (search/replace target text), applying any filters you may need, and then automatically translate the files again with the modified memory.

Updating the files from an updated TM Feb 8, 2011

Hi,

The way to do this in Studio, or one way anyway, is to use the Batch Task - Pre-translate. There is a setting here that allows you to have different Translation overwrite modes:


The default is to overwrite the existing translation if a better match is found, but you can force this to always overwrite. If you select this mode on your Project (to ensure i

Hi,

The way to do this in Studio, or one way anyway, is to use the Batch Task - Pre-translate. There is a setting here that allows you to have different Translation overwrite modes:


The default is to overwrite the existing translation if a better match is found, but you can force this to always overwrite. If you select this mode on your Project (to ensure it does not affect all projects going forward) then when you run the Batch Tasks - Pre-translate Files on the Project then all the files in your Project will update based on the content of the TM you are using. So if you change the segment in your TM it will be reflected across every file in the Project.

You can make this change under Tools-Options if you like, and then every Project or Document you work on will apply these rules. If you make the change under Project - Project Settings then only the active Project will be affected.

I hope this is what you were looking for?

Regards

Pre-translate works, but there's a catch... May 19, 2011

Aside from the fact that "pre-translate" is misleading description for this scenario, there is one serious flaw:

1) Any comments previously existing in segments that are "updated" with the pre-translate function are deleted! I discovered this right before delivering a rather complex job. Extremely aggravating!

There really needs to be a better solution. I often encounter the situation while translating that I perform a global term change in the TM and want the change to

There really needs to be a better solution. I often encounter the situation while translating that I perform a global term change in the TM and want the change to be applied to my current project. In the past, you could simply use the "Translate to Fuzzy" and or "Translate" feature in WB. As far as I can tell, Studio 2009 no longer accommodates this scenario.
