How to exclude string from segment?

I have an SDLXLIFF containing segments that all nearly always end with the same field string.

Which app should I use to exclude trailing field codes from segments like:

I'd like to either convert them to a tag (code) or to resegment the SDLXLIFF so that I get segments without the field codes.

Thanks!

Hans

There is a special plugin for that... Feb 7, 2017

...the author is Paul Filkin who also has published very useful articles about Studio. Alas I don't remember the name, if so I will link you.

[EDIT]
I don't think it's this one, but take a look under 'Replace', maybe it can do what you want.

Jesse Good's Cleanup Tasks plugin Feb 7, 2017

I think Mike may be thinking of the Cleanup Tasks plugin, which you can use to convert the code into tags:

Thank you Nora, yes, that's it! Feb 8, 2017

...I have confounded these 2 useful tools, also I express my excuses to Jesse for the confusion.

Cannot install plug-in Feb 8, 2017

Thank you Mike and Nora!

Alas, I cannot install the plug-in: it's greyed out. (Previously, I had problems installing another plug-in that should create a Glossary group in the Ribbon–so perhaps there's something wrong with my Windows.)

I'm running my Windows 8.1 in a VMware Virtual Machine as an admin:

Removed older Studio versions Feb 8, 2017

So I've removed older Studio versions, to avoid possible conflicts between versions:

When I run the installer for the plug-in, I still cannot check the box for Studio 2017:

Admin Feb 8, 2017

Although the SDL Plugin Management tool doesn't provide a way to install plug-ins (only to remove them), I've configured it to always run with Admin permissions:

And:

Alas, this doesn't allow me to check the greyed out box either.

Folder for plug-ins Feb 8, 2017

Here's a screenshot of the folder containing the plug-ins. Should I remove any folders for previous versions?

SDL Community Feb 8, 2017

That's unfortunate. I have no idea what would fix that, but my suggestion would be to also ask in the SDL Community: xl8.one.

Very disappointing Feb 8, 2017

I wanted to exclude the virtualisation as the culprit so I installed Studio 2017 on an HP Pavilion with Windows 10. I'm using an Admin account. Then I installed the plug-in–and guess what!

Same issue in the fresh installation. So, why isn't it possible to install the plug-in?

Halfway Feb 8, 2017

So I'm halfway now: I've removed Studio 2017 from the Pavilion and installed it again. This time I made sure that I didn't install the latest update. Now I was able to install the plug-in. I took screenshots and copied the contents of the folder to a USB stick. This way I can copy the files to the appropriate folders in my VMware virtual machine.

For the record, here are the screenshots, perhaps they are useful for somebody else:

Conclusion: It wasn't an issue with permissions or the virtualisation. It was a bug in the installer.

Great plug-in Feb 8, 2017

Jesse's app is just great! Exactly what I wanted:

Took some time to install this plug-in, but hey, it was worth it.

Nevertheless, it would be nice if SDL would be active here again. https://community.sdl.com/solutions/language/translationproductivity is a little overwhelming.

/SOLVED Feb 9, 2017

SDL released an update for Studio 2017 that fixes the plug-in installer:
