Removing text between brackets in TM (Studio 2014)
Thread poster: walzwerk

Aug 5, 2014


I have a huge translation memory here that contains a bunch of code. It's always between two brackets like this:

Kind of like HTML tags. And yes, they're completely spelled out, so the Delete Tags function doesn't work on them. They're just regular text to Trados.

Is there any way in Trados Studio 2014 that will get rid of the brackets and everything between them while keeping the actual text? Apart from, well, manually going through the entries. That's not an option because it'd probably take a month or so. I've tried Find & Replace with , but that doesn't work.

Thanks Aug 5, 2014

Oh man, I must've completely overlooked that during my googling. I've been to tons of sites and never saw that one.

Just used the RegEx method and Batch Edit and it worked like a charm. Thanks man, much obliged.
