Searching

New in version 3.9.

Advanced queries using boolean operations, parentheses, or field specific lookup can be used to find the strings you want.

When no field is defined, the lookup happens on Source, Translate and Context fields.

Field operators

You can specify operators, ranges or partial lookups for date or numeric searches:

state:>=translated

State is translated or better (approved).

Changed in year 2019.

changed:[2019-03-01 to 2019-04-01]

Changed between two given dates.

Exact operators

You can do an exact match query on different string fields using = operator. For example, to search for all source strings exactly matching hello world, use: source:="hello world". For searching single word expressions, you can skip quotes. For example, to search for all source strings matching hello, you can use: source:=hello.

Searching for changes

New in version 4.4.

Searching for history events can be done using change_action and change_time operators.

For example, searching for strings marked for edit in 2018 can be entered as change_time:2018 AND change_action:marked-for-edit or change_time:2018 AND change_action:"Marked for edit".

Regular expressions

Anywhere text is accepted you can also specify a regular expression as r"regexp". For instance, to search for all source strings which contain any digit between 2 and 5, use: source:r"[2-5]"

Predefined queries

You can select out of predefined queries on the search page, this allows you to quickly access the most frequent searches:
