Trados 2009: apply the source case instead of the one in the TM

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.
