Hello, I am working on a very large job consisting of several files with Trados 2009.
As I have to deliver them on a roll-on basis, after drafting the translation of 6 files I decided to polish the translation of 2 of them. Since it's a manual, it is very repetitive.
I usually follow this work flow: 1) I draft the translation of each segment, without confirm them (I use the down arrow key, only) 2) I re-read the draft translation, then confirm each segment 3) Once I am done with the document, I confirm all the segment eventually unconfirmed (e.g. those automatically propagated - green-gold leverage showing 100%)
Now I have 6 files, all 100% confirmed. Today I polished 2 of them and had to fix segments here and then. How can I ask Trados to tell me what are the segments I should have a look at because the TM was changed?
I know that once I point the cursors on a segment, Trados eventually tell me if there is a different target segment in the TM, but to do so I have to move the curson through each and every segment. Since I have 5000 segments per file, this is very time consuming.
Is there a feature that can tell Trados to please scan all the segments and alert me only about those that should be updated?
