Overview

This "convenience" step allows basic search and replace using MS Word. You should be familiar with the search and replace options within MS Word to use this step.

Takes: Raw document. Sends: Raw document (Either the input documents, or a single TMX document)

Note: This step is part of the Trados Utilities Plugin and is not included in the general distribution.
This step runs on Windows only and requires that Trados 7.x or Trados 2007 is already installed on your machine.

Parameters

Currently there is no specific UI for this step so parameters need to be entered into the following format.

  #v1
  regEx.b=true
  wholeWord.b=false
  matchCase.b=false
  count.i=2
  replaceALL.b=true
  use0=true
  search0=H?llo

  searchFormat0=Normal
  replaceFormat0=Heading 1
  use1=true
  search1=wo*d
  replace1=tout le monde

  replaceFormat1=Heading 2

regEx.b — Corresponds to MS Word "Use wildcards".

wholeWord.b — Corresponds to MS Word "Find whole words only".

matchCase.b — Corresponds to MS Word "Match case".

count.i — Number of search expressions.

replaceALL.i — Should be true.
