Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to teach auto-substitution in trados to recognize numbers with suffixes. For example:

5회 - five times
5개 - five (of an object)
5시간 - five hours

Thank you

You can do this with an OpenExchange app Dec 25, 2015

Have a look at the OpenExchange app "Regex Match AutoSuggest Provider", which you can find here: http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange/app/regexmatchautosuggestprovider-689.html#68771

It allows you to define rules based on regular expressions to identify such patterns and automatically substitute them with another pattern, allowing you for example to translate the unit or to check and correct the spacing between number and unit, etc.

The app needs some time to familiarise with t and you need to have some knowledge of regular expressions, but once you went over these obstacles, it is a "real gem".
