One quick comment about the word list: which is the best workflow to quickly translate a bunch of terms in a document? If I select "find and replace in source segments" then when saving in the TM I'll have a wrong translation? And If I decide to "find and replace in target segments", do I need first to transfer the original terms into the target panel with the "non translated" strings and then perform the Q&A before finishing the translation?
And how can I include a list with hours transtalions? For example, is this correct:
Regarding the QA F/R: I guess that the F/R isn't case-sensitive or case-adaptive?
Anyway: The feature isn't respecting word boundaries, which makes it quite dangerous to use.
BTW: There are no tooltips available for these two new menu items.
>I guess that the F/R isn't case-sensitive or case-adaptive?
Actually this isn't such a big deal: you can easily add parallel forms to the list:
And how can I add word delimiters? Also, does it support some kind of regular expressions? (maybe the glossaries?)
Some points on the new QA Find and Replace feature:
1. Please see the available options in Edit > Preferences > QA tab (whole words, match case, regular expression).
2. You can also perform the batch replacement on TMX memory after loading the TM file in the edit mode.
> And how can I include a list with hours translations? For example, is this correct:
Yes, such a list of hours can be opened for replacement either for source or target segments, depending on your needs.
Here's a screenshot of the QA tab:
Regarding the format of the F/R list: Affe=monkey
Why introducing another format? Why not simply using tab-delimited glossaries? Everything up to the first semicolon is considered a F or R item:
Affe;Hanswurst TAB monkey; ape
Just to keep things simple...
Well, it is basically as simple as the glossary format, a bit more intuitive and less error-prone to prepare such word replacement lists manually as the equals '=' separator is a visible separator. In the future, CT might detect the tab separator for complementary reason as well. Thanks!
