Hello everyone

I heard somewhere (perhaps at a presentation) that Trados is able to import edits from an updated target file. In other words, if I create a new project with e.g. a PPTX file, translate it, and then generate the translated PPTX file, and then make edits in that translated PPTX file (i.e. by opening the translated file in PowerPoint and changing the text), then there is a way to import my edits back into the project. Is that so? Where can I find that feature?

(I'm not talking about updating from a bilingual document.)

Thanks

Found it -- right-click the file > Batch Tasks > Update from reviewed target file (retrofit). Trados gives the option to show the import in the aligner, or you can just trust Trados to retrofit it without a preview. Retrofit seems to always use tracked changes for the imported changes. You can also set how strict the aligner should be when determining a match.
