I have two files, and I want to give the translation job to two separate translators, one file for each.

The files are both 250.000 characters long, but after analyzing the files, the matches account for 125.000 of one of the files. So after one file is translated, the other will only have 75.000 no-repeat characters.

What I want to do is, lock the matching segments in one of the files, and send it to the translator in that manner, so that he won't have to deal with the remaining 125.000.

Is there any way to do this?

Since Studio 2014… May 1, 2016

Since Studio 2014 you can filter filter by Excluding first occurrences, so you can take advantage of it:

- First open both files in Files View.
- Filter by Excluding first occurrences (Review ribbon > Display Filter group).
- Select all the visible segments.
- Lock themp up (CTRL+L).
- Finally, remove the filter by pressing Reset filters in the Display Filter group.
