CAT Tool Find and Replace

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers, Agency Account Owners, Translation Resource Managers, and Translation Resources.

The CAT tool Find and Replace feature allows users to quickly find and replace translations within a specific workflow step. For example, if you are an editor, you would be finding and replacing translations within your editing workflow step.

To access find and replace, go to the CAT tool and click on the "spy glass" icon. 


Alternatively, you can use the following shortcut to bring up the Find & Replace dialog box: CTRL/CMD + Shift + F. 


There's a "Find" field and a "Replace with" field. Typing a value into the Find field will find all instances of that word on the current page. If case sensitivity ("Match case") is enabled, and you searched for something such as "hello", then "HELLO" would not be a match.

In the above example, it shows that there is only one match on that page for the word "wall". If there is more than one match on the current page, you can use Replace All to change all instances on that page. Alternatively, you can use the arrows or hold Shift + Enter to go back through the matches.
