Source = Target

Idea Delivered Partially

I would like to propose a display filter for Studio in which source = target. In most cases, these have been created inadvertently and therefore it would be great if you could plainly see if there are any such segments in a file. Sometimes we receive prepared files from clients in which by default source = target. These were created by another program. It would be a good idea to create a batch task which deletes all target segments. This could also be an option for project preparation.

It would also be nice to be able to remove all TUs in a TM in which source = target. In addition, I would like a TM filter that searches for true duplicates, not multiple translations for the same segment. I believe these were created in the past by a bug in Studio.

  • Hi  - is this not part of the scope of features of the advanced display filter app? See appstore.sdl.com/.../ and description of the filters here - multifarious.filkin.com/.../ ? Also you can use the TMX file type to open a TM in the Editor and then do the desired filtering using the app.

  • Hi Daniel,

    I cannot find such an option in the Advanced Display Filter. There is a filter attribute for "source copied to target" but this does not work as a universal way to find segments where source=target. Only if the target segment was actually created using the Copy Source to Target command, will the filter work.
