Regular expressions – useful helpers for translation and localization

Mar 6, 2020 11:05 AM - 11:05 AM

In this course you will learn the principles of performing efficient searches with regular expressions. Regular expressions allow us to search very efficiently for certain strings in texts and replace them with other strings if necessary. Regular expressions are used in CAT tools, when checking translation quality, and when post-editing machine translations. They help to write very precise search queries, extend the possibilities of the "Search and Replace" function in a significant way and thus save time when editing documents. Course participants learn the principles of working with regular expressions and work on regular expressions in hands-on exercises.
