Advanced find and replace (in translations)

Normally, when you're working on a translation, you use Quick find to search for and replace text in the documents. But when you need to fine-tune your search, you need the Advanced find and replace window.

How to get here

  1. Open a document for editing: Open a project. In Project home, choose Translations. Double-click the name of the document.

    Or: Open a translation memory for editing: In Resource Console, on the left, click Translation memories. Click a TM, and under the list, click the Edit link.

    Or: Open a LiveDocs corpus document (monolingual or bilingual) or document pair for editing: In Resource Console, on the left, click LiveDocs. In the upper list, click a corpus. In the lower list, double-click a document or a document pair.

  2. Press Ctrl+F. The Quick find window opens. Press Ctrl+F again.

    Or: On the Edit ribbon, in the Find And Replace section, click the Advanced icon.

The Advanced find and replace window opens.

You can start Find and replace directly from Project home: In Translations, do not open a document. Instead, just press Ctrl+H or Ctrl+F. When you do this, memoQ assumes that you want to run Find and replace on several documents, not just one.
