Split or merge segments

Sometimes you may want to break up or combine segments for a better translation. A segment is usually a sentence, bullet, or header.

For example, a long sentence in English may sound better split into two sentences in German. Similarly, two sentences in English may sound better merged into one sentence in German.

Split a segment
  1. In the Translation editor, click the segment you want to split.
  2. At the top left, click Edit > Split segment.
  3. A box will appear with your segment highlighted. Place your cursor where you want to create the split.
  4. Click OK.
Merge segments
  1. In the Translation editor, click a segment you want to merge.
  2. Click Edit > Merge segments.
  3. You can merge your selected segment with the previous segment, or the following segment.

Note: You can only merge segments in the same paragraph. You cannot merge paragraphs, titles, bullets, and other structures in a document.
