Trados 2009: apply the source case instead of the one in the TM
Thread poster: pcs_MCIL
Dec 15, 2010

I am about to translate a large project for a client I worked for years ago. I already have a large TM, and I am looking for a way to work faster with Trados, when the source/target are one in caps and the other in normal case.


2010's English source is "Merry x-mas!" -- normal case, source
TM from 2005 returns "BUON NATALE" -- all caps
I want to get this target: "Buon Natale". --normal case, target

Currently I have to re-type the translation all over just to change the cases.
Is there a way to avoid this?

Shift F3 works the same way it does in Word. Highlight the words you want to change and toggle through shift F3.

Thanks so much, Emma! You saved my day (this one and many others)
