I'm looking to clean up my Studio TMs.
Specifically, I have a lot of segments with in both the source as well as target text.
I would just like to get rid of them. I know I can do it if I convert the TM into a .txt with Workbench, but I'd rather not.

Secondly, since I used the TM under 2007, I inverted it on a regular basis and thus now have lots of segments which are duplicate and the wrong way round, i.e. the same TU exists one time with the correct language assignment and one time with source and target languages switched.
I'd like to look for segments where this is the case - e.g. I would like to look for segments which contain both the words "the" and "and" in the source text (which should be German) and delete them.

This may be possible with Studio, but the tool is really cumbersome. Surely there is something better if you're willing to pay?

Just an idea ... Feb 3, 2014

Convert the Studio TM to TMX and edit them using Heartsome TMX Editor and back.

I used Olifant before for this task, but even the free (limited) version of Heartsome TMX Editor is a lot more powerful.

Exactly what I was looking Feb 4, 2014

Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for.
I googled around for half an hour for such a solution, but I didn't find this.
