"Search Strings" Feature

Are you struggling to find specific strings across your organization? Are you looking for a search function that will allow you to easily find identical instances across your projects and see how they are translated?

We are excited to announce the release of the “Search Strings” feature. You have a variety of filters available you can use to narrow your results and find what you are looking for easily without spending much time on this.

To get started just click on the “Search Strings” option as shown below:

Check our documentation guide here in order to find more information about how this works.

Enjoy it!


Hey Nina,

thank you for this pretty neat feature.

Used it already a few times.

One thing I noticed was a difference compared to the other search bar.
Actually I cannot search for a string consisting of a few words.

Example given: source_text:’“high contrast mode”’
It searches for each single word and so I get a lot of search results and not my desired strings.

Would you please forward this to your devs?

Hi @rakekniven,

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us.

We are planning to extend this filter, so once this is available, I will let you know :slight_smile:

Hi @rakekniven,

I would like to follow up on this and share some updates regarding the progress we have done so far based on your request.

So, I would like to inform you that a new option is now available on the search strings page, which allows you to search for exact matches.

I hope you find this useful :slight_smile:

Hello @nina,

nice to see progress and even more nice you keep me/us informed :slight_smile:
Thanks for that.

Just gave it a try and it works like excepted.

One question about it:
Why using square brackets? On resource search I can achive the same by using quotation mark.


source_text:’[high contrast mode]’

I would vote for:

source_text:’“high contrast mode”’

So both search bars would work the same.

What do you think?


Hi @rakekniven,

Thank you for getting back to me and confirming that this is working fine :slight_smile:

As far as your question, please check the following example from our editor to understand better how these options work there:

– Use brackets (e.g. [Full name is required]) for exact matches:

– Use double quotes for whole-word matches (e.g. “Full name is required”)

Does the above help?
