Where do I add my name for each translation unit ("Created by") in SDL Trados Studio 2011?

In SDL Trados Freelance 2007 I know I could do this before starting the translation (think it was user profile), but in Studio the User profile is something else. So I can't find the setting which set my name as the one who has created each translation unit. I created the TM, imported TMX from the customer, created the project and then started translating. But for each translation unit I commit to the TM, it now only says "User-PC\User". I want to have my name displayed instead.

Windows settings? Aug 8, 2012

This sounds more like a Windows setting than a Studio one. What is the name of your Windows user? And the name of your computer?

Two options to change Aug 9, 2012

I received a reply from SDL Support that I can change this using two methods:

Either I can open the TMX-export in Notes and edit there (although there are a lot of places I would need to change, so it would take too long time). Or, the simplest way, to create a new user account which I login to when I use SDL Trados Studio 2011.

Search and Replace in Notes Aug 9, 2012

To update your existing TMs, a quick search and replace in Notes should be very quick.
