Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to search and edit the Wf TM?

If not, is it possible to enter a new translation to the same target and have WF delete the previous translation?

Thanks in advance,
Salvador Scofano

Hi Salvador,

I asume you're using the latest public version 4.22t22

Yes, of course. Wordfast TM is a simple text file, so you can edit it with Notepad or any text editor.

Normally when you enter a new translation for the same segment WF will delete the previous one unless you set the rules to add everything.
If you want to make sure the new one is added and you do not want to use the old one anymore, you can do Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace on the open segment that is showing you the old translation. This will delete it from the TM, and then you can enter the new one.

The beta versions (available but not yet oficially released) have a nice TM and Glossary editor where you can perform several maintenance functions.

Hope this helps.
Merry Christmas!
Grace.

It's free, it offers a spreadsheet like editing and filtering environment for TMX, Trados TXT and Wordfast TMs.
