Hi everybody,
I wanted to ask you if it is possible to perform a concordance search for acronyms, like "HOW".
If I insert such acronym in the search tab, I got results like "however" which contain the letters of the acronym. However, I would like to search ONLY those particular letters, that is, not inserted in other words.
Thank you very much for your help.
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

If you set concordance search to a 100% only exact matches should be returned. Project Settings ->TM ->Search -> Concordance.

HTH,

Bernard

Thank you very much Bernard!
I think Trados should implement a more obvious method for searching single words...like inverted commas..

You could define Filters but I thought that was the most straightforward way of getting results immediately.
