Hello there,

Is there a way to copy source to target for the current segment in SDL Edit 2007?
I have a document in which there are some long URLs and I get partial matches with wrong URLs...

Thanks.

Press F4 Aug 9, 2012

For individual segments, you can press F4. There is a faster way to copy the entire text, but I'm working in Studio now and haven't got it in front of me.

Another shortcut question (deleting target text) Aug 10, 2012

I can see now the F4 function in the FormatPaint menu (not an obvious place to look for it).

Is there a shortcut to delete target text? I can't see it in the menus nor in the reference list of shortcuts in the Help file.

The documents were prepared by the client with automatic copy of source to target when no TM match is found, and so in almost every segment I need to start with Shift+Ctrl+Down,Left Del.

(If you don't do the "Left" it affects the next segment as well...)

Isn't there a better way?

Thank you.

Although it is not obvious, to clear all translated text, you must hit Ctrl+A (which is for Translation/Apply menu item). I'm not sure of Translation menu as I'm currently working in Trados Studio 2011 and cannot check the accurate label of that menu option in SDL Edit.

HTH.

Yes, Ctrl+Shift+A Aug 10, 2012

Indeed, Ctrl+Shift+A (Translation Memory > Apply) will recreate a new translation, inserting TM matches, with a selectable option to copy source on no match, or not. This will do fine for me. Thanks Patrick!

Another small thing: inserted glossary entry is selected; should not be Aug 10, 2012

I'll venture to ask one more question in this thread.

When inserting a TermBase term, it is selected. So every time, I have to reach the RightArrow key to unselect it and keep going, which is kind of cumbersome. Is there a way to work around this? Thank you.
