Hey everyone,

I'm using SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance and I'm editing a file that the translator is delivering in batches. I've edited some segments and now I have to open a new Return Package with a second batch. I'm wondering what is going to happen with the segments I've already edited when I open the second Return Package. Is it going to over-write the segments I've already edited? Is there any way I can prevent this from happening?

It depends on how you do the editing Nov 11, 2015


How do you do the editing? In review mode and there is someone who does the sign-off afterwards or do you make the corrections as last instance and confirm the segments to update the TM?

If you are the last instance and update the TM and the batches you receive for editing are sequential, I would on reception of the second batch simply lock all the segments you have already reviewed in the first pass (batch) and start the editing with the following segments.
