Is there any way to find all translation units in a project with mismatching occurrences of a given word/expression between source and target?
For instance, if we want to find all strings with a ™ symbol present in source but missing in target, the search would simply be:
Yet, my interest now is to find all strings with, for instance, two ™ symbols in source and only one or more than two ™ symbols in target.
Obviously, the previous search is not valid for this purpose, since it will “just” look for any target without any ™ symbol at all. I have tried unsuccessfully with several searches combining the
[^™] expression with other expressions, like the following:
The idea was to find all occurrences of source strings with two ™ symbols (a “™” followed by any set of characters and a word ending in ™) and any string in target with a ™ symbol but no ™ thereafter until the end of the string. I know I am getting it wrong, but I thought that using the
[^set-expression]*$ expression, Xbench would exclude all instances of “™” not followed by any other “™” until the end of the string. Obviously, it doesn’t.
Moreover, source expression is too greedy and also returns strings with more than two occurrences of ™.
Any idea about how to tell Xbench to search only a given number of occurrences of a word/expression within a string? Probably it is easier than I think, but I am a bit blocked with it, and any help would be much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
