Dear Colleague,

I am using TRADOS Studio 2009 and looking for a solution for changing a translated term to a new one in the middle of translation.

If the change is required only in one file, simply "search and replace" will do the job. But this time the problem is that the term is used in 84 different files. Is there a method to globally change the term? The 84 files are located in one project.

I found a posting on this subject. Suggested solution is to merge all files. But I would rather like to keep all files separate as that is the required by the client.

Thank you in advance.

Do it in the TM Nov 2, 2012

Export the TM as txt, search and replace in Notepad+, re-import TM into Studio and translate the original files automatically.

Dear Heinrich,

Thank you for this idea. Yes, it may be the best solution if such functionality is not build in TRADOS.

Based on your idea, I will simply amend the main TM and apply it to all files. I think this will save the time of exporting.

Best Wishes,
Masaomi

... use the Batch Search & Replace application from the Open Exchange which can resolve this for you without having to export to TMX (not TXT) or having to amend your Main TM.

Regards

Paul
