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?
