Hi,

Is there any tool for batch finding & replacement in TM-files (not .sdlxliff)? E.g., I have a TM-file that I want to keep using but I need to delete all private info like company names etc.

Thanks in advance

Worst case scenario: export to TMX and do your replacements there in a text editor. Be mindful that mass S&R affects both source and target, and make sure none of your operations affect the tags and corrupt the TMX. When done, create a new TM and import the doctored TMX.

Open your TM in the Translation Memories view.
Click Batch Edit
Go to Add>Find and Replace text.

I recommend making a copy of your TM before you do any editing on it.
