[Koha] Automated Way to Construct Field 2 from Field 1

Hello, all!

    A bit off topic from Koha, but here goes.

    Our catalog has quite a few records that have translated title (242)
fields. Alas, while the translated titles display in the OPAC and the staff
cataloging module, they are not searchable. Through experimentation, I have
learned that by reproducing the 242 field into a 740 field, the translated
title will indeed be both displayable and searchable.

    I don't think Koha can help with this, but maybe MarcEdit can. Does
anyone remember a video or document (PDF or DOC) about MarcEdit that allows
building a field from the elements of another field? Is it the swap utility
in MarcEdit

    Many thanks.
