Joining and splitting segments

The text is split into segments automatically, and sometimes you might need to join or split them.


Joining Segments

To join adjacent segments, hold down the Shift or Ctrl key and select them with your mouse. Then press .

The segments will be joined.

It is possible to merge unlimited number of segments at once as long as the chosen segments belong to one paragraph and go one-by-one. If you got an error message, it means you are trying to merge the segments belong to different paragraphs. 

Paragraph generally looks like this: 


You can display hidden characters if you copy that part of text from the source document to Microsoft Word and enable the corresponding function on the tool box:


Enough to remove paragraph characters in the necessary part(s) of your text, bring your piece of text back to the source document and upload a new version of your document in the system. Merge function will be available for the segments.

To upload a new version of your document you have 2 options:

  1. If you have already started a translation, your translation is stored in the Translation Memory of your project. Open your project and push the button "Upload". Select a new version of the document (use the same name). Tick the "Update" checkbox and push the button "Finish". 


    Push the button "Finish" again. When you open Editor your source text will be changed, in a "Target" field a translation from the Translation Memory will show up.
  2. If you did not start a translation yet, you can use the "Source layout and text check" function. Tick the "Check and correct source layout" checkbox in the document's settings.


    You can download the prepared file, then edit it, and upload the edited file as shown on Figure:
