I am working on a project now that contains 24 files. Some of them are quite similar and contain repetitions.

During the translation, I adjusted translation segments as I get a better understanding of the text and choose different terms.

Is there a way of updating already translated documents of this project automatically with the new translation of a term or sentence or needs this to be done manually?

Pretranslate the files? Aug 8, 2013

Hi Kai,

Maybe you could pretranslate the project again, assuming you also updated your TM with the corrected translations, and use the option to always overwrite existing translations in the Pretranslate settings under Project Settings -> Language Pairs -> All Language Pairs -> Batch Processing.

But if you prefer a more cautious approach you could run a translate to fuzzy on the files which will stop at the segments that are now different in your TM compared to the original translation. You would have to do the files one at a time but at least you have more control over what happens to your work and there is still a degree of automation even if it's one file at a time.
