Document with external, internal and do not translate style for Trados (tw4winExternal, tw4winInternal, DO_NOT_TRANSLATE)
Open this file. You can copy / paste the formatting with the shortcuts CTRL+Shift+C
You can also make mass find/replace operations by finding a specific string and replacing with the style. (Press Ctrl+H
, click on Replace With
, then Format
, select the Trados style). If you cannot find a Trados style then you have not pasted them in the document.
For example, if you have some text like this:OptimizingPars=Optimizing paragraph structure
GettingParData=Getting paragraph data
AnalyzingPars=Analyzing paragraph structure
And you want to translate text only after the "=" symbol, using wildcards:
Replace: tw4winExternal style
(the actual style, selected from Format > Style).
