Hi everybody, as the title says, I need to find and replace many simple hyphens with non-breaking hyphens in Trados 2015.
If I simply copy and paste a non-breaking hyphen tag in the search and replace window, trados converts it (very smartly) in a normal hyphen.
Could you please inform me if there is a solution to this problem?
Thank you very much,
Bruno

just another trados bug Nov 7, 2016

I suppose this is just another problem of trados with no solution at all, like the terms added to multiterm via the studio interface that disappear after closing the application..

I would have thought this was possible with a regex, but my advice is to trot over to the SDL website forum, where you are more likely to get a response. Annoying, especially given the rather idiosyncratic forum software they run, but that's the best place to get an answer.

Thank you Dan,
I didn't even know there was a SDL website forum. I'll give it a try.
Thank you for your help!

Replace the hyphens in Word and then create a new Trados project Nov 8, 2016

This is how I usually delete hyphens when they appear, e.g., after I have exported a pdf into rich text / Word. (By the way, my Trados does NOT have any problems with producing the final document when I ignore the hyphen tags that are in an original file and do not insert them into the translated segment).

Have you tried this variant? Trados should find the TM segments easily again, not as 100% matches, but it will find them anyway. So this should not take much time to change them in the Word file.

Thank you for your input Eva.
Unfortunately, in many cases I receive the trados package directly from the client, so I cannot edit any word file. I should work in that sdlxliff file, and in many cases I cannot produce a target text.
I would like to change them automatically in Trados using the search and replace function, but is seems this is not possible.
Thanks anyway!
