Hello everyone,

can anyone help with the following scenario:
I worked on a large review project involving several hundred files.

If I made a change in one segment and confirmed the translation, and the same segment occurs later on, how can I see immediately that I have previously changed this segment?

Working in Trados 2007, I could immediately see from the background color of the segment (yellow instead of green) that the translation did not match the translation in the TM.

In Studio 2009, is there some way to see at a glance that the segment is not identical to the translation in the TM?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Silke

Hi!

I would do it like this:

Go into Tools -> Options and check the settings for Editor, Auto-propagation.
On the reference page, be careful about the following in relation to Track changes:

Auto-propagation is automatically disabled:
From segments containing tracked changes in the source and/or target.
To segments containing tracked changes in the source and/or target.

So, from what I can make out, you have to Accept the changes if you have that setting on,
and then confirm the translation with CTRL+Enter.
Now, a dialog will be displayed when you move to the segment with the exact match.

Other ways are to look at the Segment Status column. If it was a 100% match in the document, it might(?) show as 100% greyed out and with a red cross to the left after you change the previous(?) exact match. (You'll have to confirm that for me!)

And, you can hold your mouse over the column to get information about what segment the translation comes from.

... the TM Results window will have a bar at the bottom that says "Different target segment in translation"... or something like that.

In 2011 and 2014 it’s easier as you have the equivalent of Translate to Fuzzy which allows you to find them all immediately. In 2009 you have to rely on your own ability to notice them as you work through the file.

Although one interesting workaround might be to pretranslate the original file in a new Project and save the sdlxliff. Then use SDLXLIFF Compare (free application on the openexchange) to compare the two files and you can display only the segments that have changed.

That would help you find them easily.

Regards

Paul
