I need to change some words (for example this: __price__) into a tag in Trados Studio so as to be non translatable. Do someone know how to do it?
I know it is possible, but I dont know where can I do it.

I know its possible to create a termbase with this word, but the way to change the word in tag is better as you can check it easily that its there as a tag.

Example: "Book this flight for __price__"
"__price__" needs to be changed into tag so as translator just copy it into the target without editing.

Thank you very much!

How about defining them as variables?
Go to your project settings (if you're already working on a file), go to translation memory, highlight it and click "settings". Select "language resources", "Variable list" and add the terms.

Now these non-translatables will be highlighted in the source segments with blue brackets underneath. Transfer them to the target side by selecting them with the shortcut Ctrl+comma.

Maybe this would work?
