Hi Trados wizards!

I am using Trados 2014 and translating several files that have one segment to be copied and another one to be translated. Always in that order. Segment 1 - copy; segment 2 - Translate; segment 3 - copy, etc.

Segments to be copied are_like_this, i.e. they have an hifen in between words. Is there a chance to copy automatically those segments without having to ctrl insert all of them?

Thanks!

Filter Nov 21, 2016

If you use a filter (under the review tab), and type the "_" in there. It will then show only the segments containing the "_". You can then select all segments and copy the source to the target.

If the other segments also contain the "_", then you need to think of another way to filter them.

Hope this helps

Copy all and then filter Nov 21, 2016

I'd copy all source to target.
Then, if you don't need to see the segments that are for copying only, filter all segments with a hyphen (making sure there are no stray hyphens in segments you need to translate).
Lock those segments and filter again by unlocked segments.

Edited to add: Snap, Toon! In fact you're right, it would be better to copy all source to target after filtering.
