Hi all,

I know it is possible to build a variables list in Trados 7. To be honest, I don't see why they call them variables, because they are simply placeables copied as such. What I need is to set real variables, for example I need Trados to copy as placeables everything that comes between #*#. I can do that in Wordfast and I was wondering if that's possible in Trados too.

Many thanks for your help.
