Translating index markers in STagger files seperately

Hello,
When working on large projects I often start by extracting the index markers and translating them first, as this is a way to create a terminology base for the project. Often the index markers also need another form than for example headings in a manual:
Example:
Heading:
Format toolbar
In Swedish this would translate into:
"Verktygsfältet Format"
But the index marker for the exact same sentence would translate:
"Format, verktygsfält"

This can be achieved by using a TM with Multiple Translations.
However, I am thinking that I would be good to pre-translated *only* the index markers in a file first, and then "lock" them by changing >100< to >101< (a good way of "tricking" Trados into thinking that the segments are XTranslated so they are left alone, color and all).
But I have not come up with a good way of doing this. Any suggestions?

Best regards,
Cecilia

In that case, you might want to merge this thread with this cross-posted one:

Anyway, regarding the actual topic: Cecilia, you could try writing a macro in Word to harvest/extract all ie and il entries.

HTH,
Benjamin

Cannot merge forum topics, I'm afraid, so I locked the other one.

Best, Ralf
