Good morning Colleagues,

I have a huge problem with my Trados 2015. I have been working on a huge file (with about 5000 segments) and I must have clicked something, which made Trados confirm ALL the segments, including the empty ones.

Now I have no idea how many I have really done and how many more to go there are. Is there any way to un-confirm the empty segments other that do it manually with each of them?

Thank you!

Should be easy. Please cursor at the beginning of the first untranslated target sentence, scroll down to the bottom, press SHIFT while left clicking to select all the target texts;
Then right click - "Change Segment Status" - "Not Translated"

Change Segment Status Jun 9, 2016

Hi,

You can change segment status of a group of segments. To do this, you can click on the segment numbers where to begin changing segment status, and then together with clicking SHIFT key, you should click where to end changing segment status. You should see the color change in segments (in 2014, they become yellow). Then, you should right click first column (the numbers going from 1 to the end), and click change segment status > not translated.

Hope you would solve it.

Best regards,

Thank you! Jun 10, 2016

Thank you for your help!

I solved it differently first, to avoid investing time (I created a new project and imported the TM from the old one) and then tried your idea and it helped indeed.

Now I will be cleverer. Have a great day!
