I realised that I needed to change all of the translations of the segments with tags. It is a translation of a glossary. So I needed to add the original word after my translation as a reference. And all of these parts have tags. But Instead of going through them one by one, I'm wondering whether there is a way to filter them out so that I do not miss anything. Thanks!

Edit: I actually figured out a way to solve my problem without dealing with tags. I used regex to filter the particular pattern that is of interest. But the question about filtering tags still remains at the moment as a theoretical one.

I prefer using hidden texts (in MS Word) to translate only what I want to and leave hidden texts as tag codes (e.g. by creating extra column only for hidden texts). After cleaning the translation into target texts, I convert hidden texts into visible fonts. This process maintain all source text tags fully.

Open the SDLXLIFF file in a text editor that can read/write UTF8 correctly. Then find "<g " and replace with "###<g ". Then filter in Trados on ###. Afterwards, delete all the ### again.

This doesn't catch all tags, but if you want to catch more tags, try the replacement also with "<x ". I'm not sure you can do it successfully because the "x" tags sometimes occur in places where there are no text and no segments.

Yes, there is... Sep 20, 2015

1. Close Studio
2. Open the Q CAT
3. Filter segments with tags

I can't get a reply for a function that does exist in Trados, but does not work.
And you want a reply for a function that does not exist in this superb piece of s oftware...
