Hello everyone

Suppose I have an SDLXLIFF file that is partially translated, and some of the non-translated segments are identical to some of the translated segments. Is there a single action that I can take that would propagate those existing translations to the matching non-translated segments? Or, is there a simple process that can accomplish that?

Thanks
Samuel

I think you must change options slightly Sep 15, 2015

Go to File > Options > Editor > Auto-propagation

Make sure that Enable Auto-propagation is active
Choose Auto-propagate exact matches to confirmed segments

If you then place the cursor in a segment that you want to be propagated, you can use ctr+Enter, and it should be propagated to the confirmed segments.

You may also choose Starting Position: Auto-propagate from: First segment in the document
Otherwise the segment will not be propagated to segments that are in front of the current segment.

Hope this is what you want.

Thanks, but this only propagates segments that I put my cursor into. I want to be able to tell Trados to propagate all segments that can be propagated, without me entering each of those segments individually.

In the end I managed it by creating a new temporary TM, importing the file to the TM, and then performing a "pre-translate" batch task on the file using that temporary TM and by setting the settings not to overwrite existing segments and setting the match percentage to 100.
