Hi,

I am inserting comments into a Trados Studio 2014. For the field 'USER', my first name appears, but as a reviewer I would like to remain anonymous, of course.

I thought that by changing Username in File > Setup, this would change there too, but it remains the same. From where Trados recover this information of my first name? How can this be changed?

I have tried to find other sections where my name could have been entered with no success...

If anyone knows how to do it, I really appreciated, I need to send file back within today...

Thank you very much in advance!

I do not know the correct answer.
But, You can try this one.

Close Studio.

Find the FileYouWantToChange.sdlxliff
You know where it is (Project file target language folder).

Open it with a text editor.
All and every comment item has its name part such as;

user="Sora"

All and every text editor has the function "Find and replace".
You are replacing it into;

user="Foo"

(u have to use "user=" part too for sure,
because the file has your name again somewhere else. for example, working folder name etc.
if you use only "Sora" it could make some problem u do not know.)

Save and close the text editor.
Now, Open Studio.

Looks good ^^.

Regards

SOLVED, IT WORKS! Jun 12, 2015

Dear Jaesang,

thank you so much! Your clever trick worked perfectly!
Unfortunately, I had to handle my assessments which are related to onboarding process for my client with my name on it, and I had to apologize for not being able to keep anonymity, but I have just tested and I will keep this solution for the next time.

I do not understand why this is made so complicated, when anonymity in reviewing/proofreading or even in collaborative projects is not something unusual, rather the standard, I would say.

All the Best,

Soraya
