I am working on a project that involves translating a number of files where there are huge numbers of context matches and 100% matches from previous projects (from TM).

I want to make sure that I do not alter them by mistake. How do you automatically apply "Lock segments" to all the segments that are context matches and 100% matches?

I am guessing that I will have to find the option in "Batch Tasks" but can't find the right one. I tried the "Pre-translate files" option and then enabled "Confirm 100% matches", "Lock 100% matches", "Confirm context matches" and "Lock context matches" and ran it but when I open the files all the relevant segments are still unconfirmed and unlocked.

Please help me on how I can achieve this.

I would appreciate your help!

You can use the filter setting under Review menu.

Under Review menu, you will see "All segments" (filter icon).
You click it to see the drop down menu. Under subcategory "Segment Types", click "100% matches".
Now you will only see the segments that are 100% matches which includes Context matches.
Select all the segments and then right-click to see pop-up menu.
Select "Change Segment Status" and select "Translated".
This will change the status of all the 100% matche segments to "Translated" (or Confirmed)
Now, while all the segments are still selected, right click again to see pop-up menu and then select "Lock Segments"

Voila! Now all the context matches and 100% matches are confirmed and locked!

I simply repeated this step for each file.

Hope this helps those who need to lock the 100% match segments in SDL Trados Studio.

I am using SDL Trados Studio 2014 so I am not sure if this feature is available in previous versions.

Enjoy your day and keep on translating!

Hokyun
