I was browsing the commands in SDL Trados 2011 and pressed "Generate target translations" and yes... it generated a whole mess of chaotic translations ....

How could I restore the empty original segments in the target section?

Thank you in advance! I promise I won't do it again...

If you haven't turned off the computer Apr 21, 2013

or done anything else, just press "control z" to undo what you just did.

If you have, you can press (I believe) "shift+contro+INS" to place the source text into the target column for the entire translation. It won't be blank, but it won't be crazy either.

Hope this helps
Eileen

Thank you, Eileen. I am doing it manually, either copying the source segments into the target segments or just deleting the "garbage" thrown by the system in my target segments.

But I supposed there was a kind of automatic way to do it

Nice Sunday!

Select all segments and then right click and select "Clear all target segments" (Alt+del).
Alternatively, if you've confirmed some segments, select "Clear draft segments" (Alt+shift+del).

Choose your prize Apr 21, 2013

Dear, Emma, you saved my... time. With that combination of keys I managed to do it in 1 step.

Now, choose your prize: a tequila bottle or a mezcal bottle for your next visit to Mexico.
Thanx a lot!!
