Possibly a silly question but is it possible to select a word in source (or target) segment and filter for it using a shortcut. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V are shortcuts as well but there should be a single shortcut for it.

Thanks

Do you mean concordance? Nov 27, 2012

Hello Selcuk --

I don't quite understand what feature you're looking for. If by "filter for [a term]" you mean "look up that term in Concordance", just select a word or phrase in either the source or target segment and hit F3. (If that doesn't work on your machine, your keyboard shortcuts might be set up differently -- click ToolsOptionsKeyboard Shortcuts, scroll down to Concordance Search, and see what your Studio installation is configured for.)

Hope that helps,

-- Erik Anderson

Hi Selcuk Nov 27, 2012

First of all, please specify the software version.

Also, it would be useful if you would be more specific about the problem itself: you description is rather unclear.

Thank you,
Natalia

SDL Trados Studio 2009/2011 Nov 27, 2012

I thought all questions regarding Trados 2007 were already asked and answered several times and this forum is used for questions on SDL Trados Studio only.

So my question was for Studio 2009/2011 users.


I don't look for the concordance feature.

What I want is to select (highlight) a term either in the source or target segment and then press a shortcut (if any) which will display only the segments with that term.

I can write it in the filter box next to "containing", or simply copy a term (ctrl+c) then move to that box with cursor and paste it. But there should be a shortcut for it (like in DVX).

Hope my question is clear now for Studio users.

Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V is the only way AFAIK Nov 28, 2012

Yes, your question is quite clear, and, no, there isn't a quicker way of doing it. You can jump to different windows using Ctrl+tab, but the "containing" filter isn't in the list.

A right click and "filter by" or something similar would be nice, I agree, although it would only save about one click.

You could suggest it in the SDL ideas page at http://ideas.sdl.com/

Thanks Emma Nov 28, 2012

It is unbelievable that such an important filter is used without a shortcut in Studio. I use it always in Deja Vu X, filtering terms both in source and/or target with shortcuts for quality checks.

Not really unbelievable... Nov 28, 2012

Hi Selcuk,

The filter also uses regular expressions by default which you would not be able to pick up from the text in the document. So whilst it may be a nice to have to be able to select text and then have this added to the display filter it's definitely not anything I'd consider a major oversight. A nice enhancement maybe

Regards

Paul

Hi Selcuk,
My solution to this nuisance is a little program called Auto Clicker Typer.
It records a series of clicks which then are played after pressing a shortcut.
So I select a word/phrase (or a regex written just in the current editor segment), and press my shortcut, in 0,5 s it makes all the cliks for the filter to be applied.
I hate using mouse (anti-RSI politics) and Studio makes you use it a lot, so this program and AutoHotkey are my solutions to the approach presented by Paul.

regards
Adam

Thanks for sharing Nov 28, 2012

Hi Adam,

I use AHK scripts widely and even create some simple ones. This program should work provided that Studio window is not resized during sessions.
