Files Source Target Find

Yes, that’s where it was. I am sure I would just delete it if I saw it. Good work.

So I’m not sure I understand – do you want me to ask Karel to speed up your payment? Or to pay to other account?

Some additional files for revetting:

JD_100201_Localize_10l Ales –
this file has some issues with &sex& etc, they were strangely located. I have not time to take a look myself, but please check it. May-be I need to return it to proofreader. But if it can be how it is – just leave it.
JD_100201_Localize_11f Ales
JD_100201_Localize_11g Ales
JD_100201_Localize_11h Ales

Please confirm and let me know what to do with your payment.

———————-

No, no special action needed. I would prefer it to go faster
but you have your regular work style, I understand.
I just need to plan my action with all sending and re-sending things.
So I need the reply kind like this : you will get your payment in about…(days).If you know of course.

If I ll need something else I will contact you separately.
Thank you in forward.

Assignment confirmed.

Here are few more files: For spelling German 3.05 14ghlmn 11c.

There is also an issue with file 17l (I am not attaching because you have it). Segment 510 is marked blue, and there is a problem in one-before the last segment: in English there is a long paragraph, and in German only one strange word.

Can you please spellcheck the attached ones and check on 17l?

Please confirm.

———————-

your advise was very usefull.
Tell me please,if there should be space around “…” in German?

———————-

Can be, but we agreed fo the project not to have it.
You can Ctrl+F, put ” …” in the “find what” line (see that there is a space before the points); and put just “…” (without space before it) in the “replace what” line. Select the German column and press “replace all”

One more thing:

In some files you may see this string: “~55~#160;” or “~55~#13;” or with some other number. If you replaced the ~55~ with &, it will look like ” ” or “” It may appear same line in both target and source cells. If you find it, please delete both form source and target and send me a message about that, stating the line and the file where you found it.

Same about N/AAAA string. It may appear in a line in both columns. You need to delete and to inform me with a message – file and line in the file.

Karel just told me he paid you.

Did you receive the files request?

OK, I v got you instruction.
We did not know before it will be that tricky, did we?
As I know when we notice “#” we just deleted it, right?
I did not understood, if we change ~55~ to “”or”” and after delete it, we wont get & when.
N/AAAAA, yes i remember the file. I thought it is only for n/aa. Do you want me to delete those completely, without leaving N/A?

Amazing, I v got the transfer.Thank you and Karel for fast working!
About the file. No, I did not notice any suspicion.
I change it according to the English source. I have met before when they use glued things in strings, but as to me – keep on English source. And sex1-I believe they mean male or female.
I have change only string and put one issue- nothing big, but you meet those things regularly, so better to be sure, so comment to all of it is attached.
Buy the way, I changed the strings with CTRL-F, so practically this file contain the only kind of string-issue.
To find them to check if they are correct – CTRL-F “&”.

———————-

the task is done.
” ”
I will work with these four files. And think it is enough for me for today. You can give me 3 or 4 for tomorrow.

———————-

No, we don’t just delete #, it is normal in some places (I hope you did not delete it…). We delete the whole combination
~55~#number;
Or, if it’s after you replaced:
&#number;

Ow, it swallowed some letters… What I said is:
…it will look like ” ” or “”

Hope now it’s more clear.

———————-

It did it again!!!!!
…it will look like &$13; or like &#160

Will it swallow them now?

———————-

In the message I sent above few letters got deleted by the messaging system.

The paragraph should be like this:
In some files you may see this string: “~55~#160;” or “~55~#13;” or with some other number. If you replaced the ~55~ with &, it will look like &$13; or like .

Now it will be visible.

Can I give you more files?

———————-

OK, I have 3 news for you. One-bad, two good.
Bad-I have deleted it.
Good-I did it only once and officially you have found it:) because I think it was together with 160.
My fault, I misunderstood the very first “Vetting Updates”.
Hope if wont cost lots of time and energy.
I am aware for future.

When I will finish, I will send you files for tomorrow. But I will need them tomorrow morning. These ones you have now I need today.
When you will be delivering them, please upload the comments to the server as well – they will be handled by other PM. Additionally, please send me a message here, that I will know what did you upload.

I received the files. I suppose you meant 11l rather than 17l? I saw the blue marking, but did not know what to do with it. I will have a look. I will also translate the second to last segment. I have checked the original file and there was the same word in it. Odd. I will send them all back to you in an hour or two.

———————-

I’m waiting for a plenty of new files from you))

———————-

Okay 🙂 I did catch the string with 160 (the messaging system doesn’t want to show this combination of characters!)

———————-

Can you please tell me quickly, how to deal with “–” both source and target. One should be there according to the sense.
