Autopropagation - Is there any way

to get these lines to autopropagate with the correct numbers? I have a very long file with a lot of segments that are a series of dates and times:

03/03/2015 10.10.33
07/05/2014 21.22.43
07/05/2014 21.24.05
08/05/2014 14.52.29
08/05/2014 14.52.55

They don't seem to autopropagate. Is there any setting I can use to get them to autopropagate or is this wishful thinking?

Better not to Autopropogate at all! Apr 7, 2015

Hi Eileen,

If I was you I would use the SDLXLIFF Toolkit to copy all these segments to target (manipulated as required), confirm and lock. This wouldn't take very long and the entire project would be sorted in a couple of clicks.

If you do AP them the process in a long file could take a while, and it's subject to various nuances of Sudio recognition which you'd have to careful validate.

If you need some help just post the format the target should be and we can help with the regex to do this.

Filter on numbers only? Apr 7, 2015

In Studio 2014 you can filter out segments with numbers only (on Review tab). Then you could copy source to target in all segments.

Use display filter and lock the segments Apr 7, 2015


I second Paul's suggestion and in case you don't need to modify the numbers' formats, don't copy source to target but leave the target empty and lock the segment to avoid anything being inserted. Having an empty target avoids cluttering your TM with unnecessary segments (where source text is identical to target).
