Hello everyone

In the SDXLIFF file I'm currently working on, there is a specific tag that occurs in certain segments. I would like to find/replace with that tag (e.g. find the-tag and replace with the-tag###), or alternatively filter segments that contain that specific tag. Can that be done in Trados 2015?

Thanks
Samuel

Notepad? Oct 7, 2015

I don't know if it can be done in Studio, but perhaps it would be a job to be done in Notepad or a similar text editor?

Not directly, since tags in SDLXLIFF files all have numbered tag IDs, and their definitions are located in the head of the file. So if your sentence contains e.g. a tag named "hello" and a tag named "goodbye", in the SDLXLIFF file's actual segment you'll see only "tag ID=1" and "tag ID=2", and in the head of the file you'll see hello=1 and goodbye=2. This makes the Notepad route very unpractical.

You can select tag view options in the view tab. Tag ID is one option. The others are none, partial or full.

Filtering by tag and find/replace tag options are missing in Studio. They would be great features to have.
