Hi! How do we replace text in Memsource? I go to Tools, Replace, fill in the source text and the new text in the Replace blank but the Replace all button is disabled. Thanks!

Hi @LilianaCH,
I’m taggiung @ClaudiaM who will possibly reply soon.
Have a great Sunday!
:dizzy:

Maybe you can look for the expression to change in the search section, where you can write either the source or the target language.

After you find the segment (or segments) you’d like to change, you can do it directly in the segment. But maybe there is an easier way to change the same expression everywhere with one touch… :face_with_monocle: :face_with_monocle: :face_with_monocle:

Hi @LilianaCH

Thanks for your question :thinking:

I believe this question is covered in the 30-minute Memsource webinar :video_camera:

I’d just like to highlight that you’re unable to change the source text, but you can replace certain phrases throughout the target translation all at once! The instructions on how to do this are in the webinar :smiley:

Thank you @Ludovica92 for helping out a fellow translator!

@charlotte1 oh yes, absolutely! :see_no_evil: :see_no_evil: I have maybe expressed myself in the wrong way, but I meant of course that the replacement was possible only for the target text. :rofl: :rofl:
But the search can be done for both (either source or target text) to find a specific segment.

Sorry if I may have confused anybody. :blush: :blush: :blush:
