Source text editing allows users to edit the source text of a segment in the CAT Editor.

How to edit source text

Open a document in the CAT Editor

Click the pencil icon to the right of the segment.

Change the segment source text and click ‘Save changes’

The MT suggested target text will update based on changes made to the source text.

When to edit source text

You can only edit source text if the segment is not confirmed. If you want to edit the source text of a confirmed segment, the user must un-confirm the segment first.

Who can edit source text

Only users with the permission ‘Segment Source’ are allowed to edit source text. Users assigned to the Administrator or Manager role have this permission enabled.
