Hi!

I hope someone would be able to help me with this. As you probably know, there's this wonderful feature in MS Word which allows you to select a text, press "Ctrl+D" and select "All caps."

I'm wondering, is there something similar in Trados 2015?

The reason why I'm asking is because I have a lot of terms and whole segments in my TM that are either in all caps or all lower case, and suddenly, the file I'm translating contains the exact same term or segment, but the other way around. As an example, the result is: source text is all caps, target should be a 100% match but is all lower case.

I'm working on a lot of similar projects, so this happens more than often, and honestly... it's frustrating to have to re-write everything. Of course, after a while, both are in the TM, but there are always new segments and terms with the same problem.

Anyway, do you know if this is something that can be done in Trados? If not, any tricks/suggestions?

Thanks to all of you!

Ivan

F3 toggles caps. If it is studio, just paint the text and press F3; in Word, paint and Shift+F3

Thank you! Jul 2, 2016

Thank you very much for your reply. It actually didn't work as F3 is my shortcut to search the TM, BUT your input made me think of something. I took a look at the shortcuts list and noticed there is one for caps (go figure why I didn't see it before...).

Basically, I just found out in my settings, it's also Shift+F3.

You may not realize this, but right now, your input is saving my life! haha thank you!
