SDL TRADOS: How to copy all source and leave 100% matches untouched?
Thread poster: samesteve

I know how to copy all source to target, but when doing so those 100% matches already existed in target will change to source as well.
I would like to know if there is a way to only copy source to target and still keeps the 100% matches.

Or is there a convenience way that I could lock those 100% matches first?

Thank you.

If you choose the Review tab og click the All segments button, you can choose for instance 100% matches and lock them. Afterwards you should be able to copy source to target for the rest.

Or you could choose Unconfirmed and then copy source to target. But of course, you then won't include segments that are not 100%, but are confirmed.

Hi samesteve,

If you choose "Copy All Source to Target" then all 100% matches are left as they are. If you do one at a time they are replaced, but not if you use the other option to do the entire document in one go.
