When I've finished translating a document I obviously check through it, make any alterations, then do a spell-check. If I have previously marked all segments as translated the spell-check then alters them to draft. How can I then automatically change the state to 100 % translated in one go, is there an easier way than going to each segment and re-marking it as translated?

This is how Jul 3, 2012

1. Use the segment filter to display Draft segments only
2. Go to the first segment and click on the segment number
3. Go to the last segment and click on the segment number WHILE HOLDING THE SHIFT KEY
4. Right-click on the segment number and select "Change segment status > Translated"

That's it.

Just to add a step to this... Jul 4, 2012

... make sure you run the update TM batch task afterwards or you won't add the spellchecked segments to your TM. Changing the status in this way only affects the status... it does not confirm them to your TM as well.

Just to make sure you were aware of this

Regards

Paul

Thanks Paul, Jul 4, 2012

my client requires me to send the file before I actually run the batch tasks so although I wasn't aware of that specifically it does get done in the end.
