As I dimly recall, in MS Word, I would mark your incorrect French phrase one way and would insert my native French phrase marked in some other way so that you could see both in the same document, almost as if I had done it by hand. Then, you could decide whether or not to accept my correction with a mere stroke on a key.
Well, try to copy the file, make real corrections in the copy and then drop both of them on the Drop Script and you'll get a third file that, when compiled, gives you what you want.
