Dear Colleagues,

I got a TM saying that the author is ABC. I'd like to change it into XYZ. Is ist possible? I tried exporting the segments and importing them again into an empty TM but ABC remained. Please helpicon_smile.gif

Using Notepad, for example Aug 13, 2013

Make multiple changes in the exported file using the Find and Replace command (be careful to not change some similar words or their parts) replacing ABC by XYZ and reimport the file.

In order to avoid changing/replacing similar words/parts of words, don't select only author's name ABC, select the whole part like ""ABC.

You also have to be careful about encoding (in some cases/for some languages) when saving the files, because wrong encoding causes weird special letters/characters.
