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 not defining any field, the lookup happens on Source, Target and Context fields.

Boolean operators

You can combine lookups using AND, OR, NOT and parentheses to form complex queries. For example: state:translated AND (source:hello OR source:bar)

Field operators

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

state:>=translated
State is translated or better (approved).
changed:2019
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.

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]"
