Hi all,

I have a folder in Trados 2009 with about 40 files. Suppose I decided
to change my translation of a word, but I do not remember in which file the word is.

Is there any effective method other than opening each of the 40 files individually and
searching in them ??

Regards,
Ali

Takes a while to install and index your files, but then you can find anything anywhere. Love the Google.

Except if I am wrong this (free) tool should do the job, as long as your files are in the sdlxliff format.
