Is there a function in Trados that allows me to change all occurrences of a specific segment automatically? Memsource does that, for example, if I decide to change the wording of a segment that is repeated 20 more times within a document, I can just change the first occurrence and the others would be adjusted automatically.

Is this not possible in Trados, I can't find a way to do it?

Propagate? Jan 11, 2016

It sounds like you want to propagate the change to all repetitions. You probably have to change the setting in Studio
Options > Auto-Propagation > Auto-propagate exact matches to confirmed segments.

Propagation -- Trados 2015 Jan 11, 2016

Unfortunately, you did not indicate the version of Trados you are using, but here is where you find the corresponding options in Trados 2015:

1. Go to File > Options >Editor . Auto-propagation.
2. Select checkbox Enable Auto-propagation (minimum match value: 100)
3. Select checkbox Auto-propagate exact matches to confirmed segments.

Under Prompt User (same tab) select your preferred way of getting prompted when propagation segments, i.e. Always or Conditionally or Never. If you select Conditional and your segments are already confirmed, make sure to select "Matching segment is confirmed".

Hope this helps.

Uta

Thank you Roy and Uta!!! Jan 11, 2016

That's great, I have changed it and it works!

I was not aware that this function was called Propagation, therefore I had a hard time finding it in Help.

And yes, Trados 2015.


There is one more thing that is troubling me ...

When the source text is in capital letters my Auto-Suggest text does not adjust and I have to type it all out in capital letters again? Can that be solved just as easily?

Many thanks!!

Most Word shortkeys work in Studio Jan 11, 2016

You should be able to switch to all capitals (or some other combination) with ctr+F3 after marking the text you want changed.

All the best,
Roy
