Hi,

I'm doing maintenance operations with Trados Freelance 7 TMs. I want to add attribute/text fields to existing segments in my TM.
In the maintenance menu of Trados Workbench under "find & replace" you can remove or replace field's content for existing segments.
But is there any trick to ADD new fields for existing entries?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Mike

Problem solved. Jun 28, 2007

I figured out myself: the solution is search & replace operations of the exported WB file within WORD.

Hi Mike,

You might like to download the freeware Olifant TM management tool.

http://www.translate.com/technology/tools/Olifant.html

Export the TM you want to tinker with to TMX and open it in Olifant. Hit CTRL+T to open the TM Properties dialog box and you'll see you can add pick-list attribute fields as well as text fields.

Thanks Giles! Jun 28, 2007

Dear Giles,

thanks very much for your suggestion! I'll try it out immediately .
This will surely be better, with lesser risk involved than dilly-dally changes in WORD.

Have a nice day!

simply add Jun 29, 2007

Hi,

if you only want to ADD an attribute/text field value to all your translation units you can do it with the find and replace functionality within TWB.

You should simply set a filter to get the translation units you want to add an attribute/text field value.
Then you choose from the find and replace the attribute/text field value you want to add. Click OK and Start the search.
Change All is the best choice.


So you can do this w/o exporting+importing your translation memory.

Best,
Michael
