By accessing the Actions tab users gain access to Batch Actions as well as Language and Segment Actions in the Translation Editor. All actions will only have an impact on currently filtered segments. If no filter is enabled the action will be applied to all segments.

Batch Actions

By opening the Batch Actions window users can configure several Language and Segment Actions that are to be run simultaneously on all filtered segments.

  1. Select the languages you’d like to run. The actions are sorted by segment and language level.

  2. Select the values and language for your changes.

  3. Optionally, you can get a preview of your changes by clicking on the eye symbol on top.

  4. If you hit “Apply” your actions will be run.
