In use: Trados Studio Professional 2009 on a PC with Windows 7


Hello,

I'd like to define an exception for colon segmentation.
I do not want any segmentation if a colon is followed by a space and a number, eg.

a) Beispiel: 2-5
b) Abstand: 132 mm
c) Datum: 2011-03-15

What already works well is the present exception for lowercase letters following a space
\s\p{Ll}

I added one for uppercase letters and this works as well
\s\p{Lu}

So I added
\s\p{N}
for the numbers exception and also tried different syntax
\s\d
and
\s\[0-9]
but never succeeded.

Is there any regexp-expert out there who knows a Trados-conform syntax?

Thanks for any help.

\s\p{N} works, but after introducing the exception for colon, it is not enough to close the translated file – you should close Studio too, then reopen Studio and the file, to put the changes into act.

Did not reload file - now it works for me too Mar 16, 2011

Hello István,

thank you for the detailed procedure.
I even knew that I had to restart Trados but never reoladed the file.
I wonder why I did not recognize that with my other exception rules ...

Anyway, now it works for me, too and I am very happy about that!

Thanks a lot,
Christoph
