I'm working with SDL Trados 2009 and I was wondering if the modifications I make on a document while correcting it could be propagated to all the files of the project.

Kind regards,

SDLX 2007 Dec 30, 2011

SDLX 2007 has this global change utility; I usually use it.

Hmnnn... SDLX 2007 is... Dec 30, 2011

.... a useful suggestion but perhaps not what a user of 2009 had in mindicon_wink.gif

Hi Mohamed,

I think you have two options. The first is if you have merged the files then you can globally change all the files in the one project.

If not, then perhaps you could try using the Global Batch Search & Replace tool on the OpenExchange. This will allow you to make changes across the whole Project.

SDL Batch Find/Replace :

Just a reminder that for 2011 users this application is included in the start menu so don't install the one at this link above.
