Hello I was wondering if there is some way to block 100% matches words in a TTX file.

I know it is not possible to highlight text. But what about a function that blocks or skips the 100% matches when you are proofreading a text?

Thanks
Caro

Convert it into WORD Mar 1, 2007

When you get a ttx file to be translated , converted it into WORD file using TTXpress.
Then you can using the Trados to pretranslate the MS Word file. You must set all pre-translated sentences in differerent color in options of Trados workbench.

Now all 100% match pretranslated sentences are in different color. You can translate other non-100%-match sentences now. You can easily distinguish 100% match sentences after you complete the whole translation.

After proofreading you can convert it back into TTX file using TTXpress.

Hope it can help you.

Follow these steps:

1. Open the TTX file with a text editor;

2. Find the "TU" elements which have a value of "100" for the "MatchPercent" attribute;

3. For these "TU" elements, change the value of the "Origin" attribute to "xtranslate".

I hope this helps!

Open Next no 100%/Get Mar 1, 2007

Hi Caro,

I don't know how you proofread your .ttx file, but if you do it by opening each segment in TagEditor, you could try the commands Open Next no 100%/Get (keyboard shortcut Alt+Ctrl+Home) and Set Close Next no 100% Open Get (keyboard Alt+Ctrl+Num+), respectively. This way TagEditor will go through the file ignoring all 100% matches.

Hope this helps,
Marion
