I am relatively new user of Trados 2011 Starter Edition, and I am wondering how can I optmize my work in 2 aspects:

1.perform a Find/Localize a word through all files? It seems I have to go file by file if I want to search for a word. This is usefull when after some work has been done, I for example realize another term or expression is more appropriated, and I need therefore to track all occurencies of this word. In other tools, the Find or Find/replace tool is able to let me chose between this file or whole project.

2.perform QA checks for the whole project in once? Right now I have to go file by file. So, for example, after project is finished, if Iwould like to double check for inconsistency issues, I could not figure out how to do it for the whole set of files, but I had to go one by one!

Right now I am handling a package that contains over 30 files, and I have found extremely time consuming to perform the 2 cases above, not being sure weather software really has this limitation or I have missed these analyse, find feature for ALL.

I would really appreciate any tips for my next projects!

Thank you in advance!
