I am trying to perform a search for a couple of words in a TM. Having opened the TM view and the TM in question, when I order a "Find", it keeps asking me page after page if I wish to search the next pages for the term I have entered... Is there a way around this, please?

Thank you,
jose ruivo

Use Studio Jun 23, 2017

You could put the word you want in a test document and translate it as a single document in Studio, attaching your TM to the project. If you open the file for translation in Studio do a concordance search for the words you are looking for. It is also possible from Studio to edit the translation units, if that's what you are looking to do.

A better way of searching a TM is to use XBench, Oliphant or Heartsome. In these programs all the TUs are displayed one after the other, not in pages as in Studio.

XBench Jun 23, 2017

I second the use of XBench. I use it for every project in Studio, and a lot for searches in the project files as well as the tm's.
