Hi to all of you,

I am not particularly savy when it comes to complicated issues. The thing is I have several txt files to translate like this:"Gastos" -- FIXED"Informes" -- FIXED

I just need to translate the words in "". And I cannot extract them.

Can some of you help me on this?

Thanks in advance!

Use a Word document Aug 14

You could save the text as a Word document, then use Word's find and replace feature, using wildcards, to change all the text you don't want to translate to hidden text, which Studio won't see. After translation you can then unhide everything.

Edit file type settings Aug 16

You can edit the file type settings. Go to Project settings / File types / Text. Under Text click Document structure. Insert in both lines (Opening/closing pattern) a quotation mark ".
Then click Add.
I tried this with your example text and it works.
