Search Strings allows you to filter (text) and illustrate key string results across all your projects and languages in one instance via your organization’s page. Simplistic in its use and just with a few clicks indicate from the selected pool of strings and switch to the editor with one click to conduct all your edits in an organized, efficient manner.
How it works
Enter TX and click on the top menu bar the “Search Strings” option.
Enter the text in the search field and hit “enter” or click “search”. This will automatically search for the source text and fetch all the strings that include any words entered in the search field.
If you wish to further filter the results, click in the “Filters” box below to set your search criteria per project/ source language/target language/resource/text/status/user/date or key.
Subsequently, a table is generated including all the string results (with a threshold up to 4,000 entries) and a sorting option (which must be performed prior to searching) that can sort the strings based on:
- last activity (fetches the most recent reviewed strings)
- project (segments strings per project)
- relevance (sorts by text relevance)
- appearance order (illustrates string sequence based on how they appear in the resource file
The “Items per page” on the top left side of the table can display up to 100 entries.
Pagination is displayed on the right top of the table and by clicking the icon you can navigate to the next or previous page.
By clicking on a string, the below window will slide from the right containing valuable info regarding the specific string.
You can open the string in the editor either by clicking on the “Open in Editor” button below or by directly clicking on the icon. The editor opens in a new tab.
Specifics & Conditions
- For optimal performance the search fetches up to 4,000 entries, when exceeded the entries are displayed as 4,000+. In case the threshold of search results is reached, a message will appear "Please refine your search criteria".
- Only one sorting can be performed at a time, eg. sort by source language and then sort by project name will result in removing the first sorting by source language.
- Sorting can be performed after searching for strings.
- Default sorting is by “Project” if only filters have been used.
- If text search is also used then results are by default sorted by “Relevance”.
