Hi,

Is it possible to view in only the segments that contain at least one term included in the TermBase?

Thank you,

One way to do this Jun 29

One way to do this would be:

1. Convert your termbase to an excel file with Glossary Converter (from the SDL AppStore)

2. Use the Excel formula =TEXTJOIN(" | ", TRUE, A1:A100) to create a text string of all the terms with a "|" in between each of them (this assumes the termbase terms are in the cells A1:A100 but it can be any range)

3. Copy this to the Trados Advanced Display Filter and search. Make sure "Regular Expression" is checked.

Hi James,

What do you mean by "Copy this"?

Thanks

Copy the string with pipes to the search field (Review tab) Jun 30

When you have a string that contains all your terms separated by the pipe sign (|), you can copy this string and paste into the search filed in the Review tab. The pipe sign (|) means "or". So when you search for a string "January|February|March|April|May|June|July|August|September|October|November|December", this will give you any segment that contains January or February or March or April or May or June or July or August or September or October or November or December or combination thereof.
UPD. Well, James Plastow mentioned the Advanced Display Filter, but actually it also works with regular search field the same way. Just paste your string with all your terms into that field and press Enter.
