Now, open the "Replace" dialog by clicking [Ctrl+H] or other key combination depending on the text editor.
In the Replace dialog box, please type as follows:
<TrU>\r\n<Att L=Subject>Subject_name\r\n<Att L=Project>Project_name\r\n<Seg L=EN-US>\1\r\n<Seg L=KO-KR>\2\r\n</TrU>
The Subject and Project attributes (in red text) are optional. And the language codes (EN-US, KO-KR) should be changed according the actual language pair.
In Figure 3 above, the option "Use Regular Expressions (or regex)" must be checked. Click "Replace All." The resulting screen will be as follows:
Save it in a text format. Now, you can import it from Trados Workbench.
