Studio 2014: Opening several files at one time

Hi all,

Today's project for me consists of five different files where several corrections have to be implemented. Those five files have previously been split up from just one big file (as Studio could not handle a file of that size). The files were not split up by chapters etc., but by word counts.

My reference document is a 436 page manual (PDF).

As I see it, I would have to keep on opening the files one by one and search for whatever term or sentence that should be changed. This will take forever.

Is there really no way I can open all five files at one time in Editor at one time? I've looked thoroughly in Studio's Help section and in this forum, but found no answers.

Hopefully this is possible, and hopefully someone knows how...??

Best regards,

Hanne

- not possible Sep 4, 2014

Hi kimjasper,

Thank you for replying, but actually I already tried that. When I right-click, the option 'Open for translation' (and 'Open for review' for that matter) is faded out.

Best regards,

Hanne

Source/Target Sep 4, 2014

And you are viewing the target language files? Look to the left of the screen, under Files. Do you see the flag of the source language, or the target language? If it's the source language, select the target language from the drop-down menu.

That's the only thing I can think of as to why it doesn't work. I've never had a problem selecting multiple files in Studio for on-the-fly merging...

It's not that either Sep 4, 2014

Yes, it's the Danish flag (target language) showing up on the left.

Actually, if I mark just one file out of the five, the desired option is not faded out.

Very strange.

Thank you anyway, Marie-Claude,

Hanne

Create a project Sep 4, 2014

Have you tried creating a project? When creating the project, include all the files you want to work on, then highlight the files and click on the merge option. All the files will open together as a single document. So, you can work on them all at once. Then, when you save target, Trados will split the file into it's constituent documents again.
Or have I misunderstood your question?
