The title of this article is only half joking… half because the Terminjector provides a mechanism for filling a neat hole in the armour of Studio… and the other half because this application takes advantage of exactly what the SDL OpenExchange was designed to do. It was designed to provide a mechanism for any developer … Continue reading The Studio Terminator… err Terminjector
The handling of numbers and units in Studio is always something that raises questions and over the years I’ve tackled it in various articles. But one thing I don’t believe I have specifically addressed, and I do see this rear its head from time to time, is how to handle the spaces between a number … Continue reading Spaces and Units…
I’ve been talking about this image for around a year in various presentations where we talked about the plans for Studio 2014. As of today to be able to finally present it as a fait accompli feels good… in fact it feels wonderful! Whilst this is a good headline it’s not everything you get with SP2 … Continue reading The future is bright… it’s not Java!
This year at the ATA in Chicago all the tool vendors who attended the event were given the opportunity to run a little “Tool Bar” where attendees could come and ask any question they liked. This was a great initiative, and despite the first day where we were perhaps mistakenly tucked away under the arctic … Continue reading The ATA55 in Chicago and the SDL OpenExchange… which apps?

We had a fair few of these over the course of the year but I’ll pick out six that I think are … Continue reading My favourite OpenExchange apps in 2012…
Handling number only segments is a question that comes up a fair bit, and for a number of reasons. Mostly it’s the more simple question of how to handle them at all; sometimes they are recognised and Studio can auto-localize them; sometimes they aren’t recognised and you need to work around this a little. This question I’ve addressed a few times, … Continue reading Identifying numbers in your analysis
A few articles ago I spent time explaining how to use the TermInjector OpenExchange application from Tommi Nieminen which allows you to create dynamic variables based on regular expressions. It is a pretty complex article and I had to reread it a couple of times to get my head around it again, and I needed expert … Continue reading Working with placeables that are not automatically recognised
Updated January 2015 : Also possible, and easier, to use the Variable Manager from the SDL OpenExchange for this. I mentioned in a previous post that it wasn’t possible to import long variable lists into a Studio Translation Memory using the desktop version of Studio. You can do this with GroupShare, but the ability to … Continue reading Working with Variable Lists
