Checking quotes consistency Wordfast Classic

Jump to: navigation, search

The following macro compares source/target segment to make sure quotes are consistent (same types and numbers of quotes used). Add this macro to WFC/Setup/General, as a QA macro, or as a Post-segmentation macro.

When a quote discrepancy is found, WFC will warn the user, with a choice of getting back to the segment and correcting the problem, or just moving on to the next segment.

If Not ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Exists("WfSource") Then Exit Sub

Dim I As Integer, Src As String, Trg As String, Quotes As String, Uq As String

For I = 1 To Len(Quotes)

Uq = Mid(Quotes, I, 1)
