Hello everyone,

A post might already have been published on that topic but I could not find any, so sorry if it is the case.

I have a big project with multiple files. I just realized that I made a mistake in the previous files. So my question is: is there a way in Trados to open all the files at the same time in order to make the changes, and not have to reopen each file separately?

Tank you very much for your help !

Yes, see below! Feb 1

Hi Mariann,

Yes, there is. I wrote a blog post on the subject recently, which you may find useful: https://clairecoxtranslations.wordpress.com/2017/12/12/my-trados-top-tips-working-on-multiple-files/

Basically, though, just go to the files list in your project, click on the first file you want to open, hold down Control and click on the rest, then when they're all highlighted, either click on Open for translation (or Review) in the ribbon, or right-click and press Open for Translation. All the files will open in one long list, separated by a small orange bar, but when you save them they save back as original files.

Enjoy! It's so useful when you're translating or proof-reading a lot of related files, as autopropagation makes the task of ensuring consistency so much easier.

All the best,

Claire

I think it may depend on your Studio version Feb 1

The later versions (at least 2015 and 2017) have the option you want. Just mark the files (or all files) and you can open them in one go.

With older versions I don't think you are able to.

If you have an older version, this alone, to me, is sufficient reason to upgrade to the latest version.
