  • to change number, currency or date formats in a document
  • to format text the way you want
  • to color-highlight potential issues for manual review
  • to adapt text to a specific language dialect (e.g. convert between American English and British English)
  • to obfuscate document content, replacing letters with other letters

Using this powerful tool, you can save a lot of time preparing documents for translation in a CAT tool or performing in-context review after translation, by executing one or several different commands on each document. Use this tool on multiple documents or current document:
  • to hide specific text from your CAT tool or convert it to tags using Hide/Unhide Text tool

  • to correct certain text automatically by replacing the text that matches search expressions, including regular expressions (using Multiple Find & Replace tool)
  • to clear color highlighting in documents with Clear Highlighting command to make sure that no review traces remain in the documents when they are being submitted to the customer
  • to create special in-context previews for translators by highlighting or formatting special words and phrases that must be translated according to style guides, customer guidelines, etc. (using Multiple Find & Replace tool or Apply Highlighting command)
