The Find and Replace tool in the sidebar allows a linguist to look for words and expressions in the source and target of document and projects. In the sidebar, select the magnifying glass to launch the feature.
To find a word or phrase in a document or project, simply enter at least one character in the search field and any options to be included in the search. You have the options to search:
- case-sensitive matches
- search across an entire project, in documents assigned to you as a linguist
- whole words
A list of search results will return after the search is initiated. The searched term is highlighted in the results and when the result is selected, the document will bring the segment number into focus.
Replace and Replace All
The replace function will search for words or phrases in the document target to replace. To use the replace functionality, just fill in the replace field with the word that you want substituted. Select the search button. A list of segments will return with the searched phrase highlighted. Select the segment that you want the word or phrase replaced and select the "replace selected" button to replace the words for a particular segment. If you want the word or phrase replaced in the whole document or project, select the "replace all" button.
Please note that words or phrases will be replaced on segments in any state: unconfirmed, confirmed, accepted and locked.
The find and replace feature has the ability to find and replace words across a whole project and the search results will indicate affected segments in each document.
