Hi all,

Does anyone know a trick to delete segments where source=target?

(I can only think of export as TMX and use Olifant ...)

One other possible solution: Filter the target file on strings/characters that can occur in the source segments but not in the target segments. (For DEU>NLD that will be ä|ö|u|ß).

Set those segments to 'Untranslated'.

Create a reference extract to get rid of the untranslated segments.

This solution is not bullet proof, though ...
