I'm using Trados 6.5 Freelance.

Trados often includes two sentences (delimited with full stops) in a segment, and I have to use Shrink Segment to remove the second sentence.

I've tried fooling about with the segmentation rules, but it doesn't seem to work. It's driving me nuts!!!!!

Spaces? Sep 17, 2004

Is there a space following the full stop? If there isn't, there's nothing much you can do other than editing the source (i.e. inserting a space) before opening the segment.

Regards,
Stefan

Or is there a non-breaking space after the full stop?

Thanks... Sep 27, 2004

Thanks for your assistance, folks. After a while the problem didn't appear any more and now it's working OK.

As regards spaces after my full stops, I cannot now honestly remember if they were originally there in my text or not. So I really don't know if that was the problem. (I hate it when that happens.)
