Hi,
I've aligned about half of a rather large document, and I don't need to align the other half. Is there any way to export only those sentences I've already aligned, or simply erase the ones I don't need? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Export only the confirmed segments Mar 27, 2011

When you say "I have aligned half ...", I guess you mean that you visually checked half of the document, which would mean that you have confirmed those segments. As the once that you have not yet checked are not confirmed, you can simply export only the 100% segments. It will not export the segments that you have not yet confirmed.

Thanks Mar 27, 2011

It's just that I thought that the software exports all aligned segments, whether I've confirmed them or not (I guess that by "confirm" you mean that I clicked on the "commit" button for each pair).

Yes, I meant 'commit' ... Mar 28, 2011

... and with the 'Export Threshold Slider' in the Project Settings (tab Export), you can decide which units do get exported. If you move it to the right (100 %), WinAlign will only export committed units.


BTW: you do not need to 'commit' each pair individually. You can visually move down all your aligned units up to the first that is not correctly aligned, select the last one that is correct, right-click and select 'Commit - Up to active unit'. IF necessary, click on *Realign structure from active unit and go on checking, then commit again the entire series of units that are OK, and so on.

This is the fastest way to check the alignment.
