Hi all,

I am currently working on a doc and right in the middle of translating, I did something, that turned all the rest of the empty cells into green confirmed!! Is there any way I can undo this? I like to monitor the progress in translation as I go.

TIA

Not an option anymore Nov 18, 2012

Unfortunately, "undo" is no longer an option because (dumb me), I saved and exited at a certain point

A suggestion ... Nov 18, 2012

... if you have a copy of the source text file, copy it with a small change on file name (e.g. sourcefile.ext to sourcefile_B.ext) and insert this now renamed file as a new file to be translated into Trados.

Before doing this, on Project settings > Language Pairs > batch processing > pre-translate, unmark "confirm 100% matches".

Now, open this renamed file for translation. Maybe that those problematic segments become unmarked. If this happens, translate them, forgetting all earlier translated segments (let them blank).

After finished this work (translating wrong-marked remaining segments), save this renamed file, close it, go back to Project settings above, and now mark "confirm 100% matches".

Now, go to files section, right click on this file, select "batch tasks" > pretranslate (or alike).

After that, this new file would contain all translation, including the correctly translated segments. Generate the corresponding target file, and, if so, delete the "_B" extension on file name. Now one would ever now this circumvention.

Since I work on german version of Trados, the above processing path may be a bit different.

Change segment status Nov 18, 2012

As Zoltán says, change the status of the segments.

Select all the segments where you want to change the status.

To do this, place the cursor in the first segment that you want to change back to untranslated. Make sure it's in the segment number column on the left.

Now go the end of the file (ctrl+end) and click shift+left mouse click in the last segment number.

With all the segments selected, do a right mouse click and select "change segment

All empty segments became confirmed - keep having the same problem May 29, 2013

I don't know what I am doing but suddenly all the segments are confirmed. I followed Emma's advise and marked the segments in the far left column and it worked. Thanks so much AGAIN Emma!

What causes this? Paul, anyone? Jun 5, 2013

I'd like to know what causes this problem where all segments are suddenly marked as Confirmed, since it would be a handy feature as well.

Thanks Emma! Dec 15, 2013

This just now happened to me also, but was quickly fixed once I found this thread with your solution.
Indeed, it's a strange and apparently persistent bug.

All empty segments suddenly marked as confirmed - Recurrent problem Dec 15, 2013

I just experienced in SDL Studio 2011 the same annoying, disconcerting, time-wasting problem.

Unfortunately, SDL staff themselves do not seem to understand what is going on. Who will, then, I ask?

Different workaround Jan 30, 2014

I've just had the same problem. For some reason, marking a random segment as locked and then unlocking it again undid the accidentally confirmed segments.

Having this too Feb 18, 2014

On top of out of memory exceptions etc now this occurred too...

All my segments in a 60k translation have been marked as translated.

This is a huge mess.

Ditto for Trados 2014 Feb 21, 2014

Just happened to me for the first time with a file in Trados 2014. Trados unfortunately would not let me select several segments to change the status, only one at a time.

SDLXLIFF Toolkit Feb 21, 2014

Hello,

I wonder if you could use the SDLXLIFF Toolkit to change the status of all the segments to Translated in one go? This is a free application that you can find on the SDL OpenExchange website.
