Is there a way in Studio to find text and replace it with tags in Studio?

A client changed the way they prepare the documents and now they are using a different DTP program.

The old texts and the TM contain lots of lines that go like:

Loose part “1”, part “2”, and parts “3” and “4”, and plug in part “5”.

But, with the new DTP software, all the quotation marks “1” have been replaced by tags, as in

Loose part 1, part ......

meaning some tag.

Is there a way to do maintenance in the TM and change all the “ and ” by ?
Or how to use the find and replace function?

It seems it is not possible to replace texts by tags.
