Dear Colleagues!

Is there a function of text search in Trados Studio 2009 packages?

For example, I have a large package with over 90 files and would like to find only those files that contain specific words without opening all of them.
Is it possible?

Thank you in advance!

This is not possible in Studio, I'm afraid. But you might want to try the Batch Search & Replace tool available from http://www.sdl.com/en/language-technology/partners/sdl-openexchange/AppDetails.aspx?appid=35

The link works for me. Okay, google for "SDL Open Exchange" and then go to "Browse Apps" and find the "Batch Find/Replace" application.

Perhaps you would like to submit an idea on ideas.sdl.com to introduce a cross-file search in Studio. This would be really nice.

which OS Apr 7, 2011

(I'm not talking about a SDL function, just a general system search)

You can do a title keyword search for the entire computer, if you are using windows 7 or Mac. It also seems to take into account keywords present only inside a text, and finds that text.

But it's not completely reliable yet (it forgets some results)

Actually, I use Total Commader for these purposes. But it's not completely reliable - you are right - and not so comfortable and fast.
I hoped, there was some integrated tool, but unfortunately...

You can Find and Replace in files and folders, and can use a filename-filter.

Thanks ))
I use it in some cases too, but it's not always comfortable.
