Follow this step ,To replace some text inside the quotes
Step 1:- First make sure “Replace straight quotes with Smart quotes” is ticked, on the “AutoFormat As You Type” tab under Tools + Autocorrect; and if you want to use a highlight in the replace, make sure the default highlight colour on the Reviewing toolbar is set to the colour you want.
Step 2:- Then replace " with ", which will replace any straight quotes in the document with smart quotes.
Step 3:- Now do your wildcard Find and Replace.
Your “Find What” text needs to be:
Note that the quotes must be smart quotes: you can paste them from the document into the “Find what:” box.
Your Replace with text needs to be:
And in the “Replace with:” box, either select Format + Font + Italic, or Format + Highlight, depending on your preference.
Step 4:- Finally, remove any orpaned opening smart quotes “ (as you might have if you’d had a quotation spanning more than one paragraph), by replacing the opening quote character (which, as before, you can cut and paste into the dialog from the document; don’t type it) with nothing.
I hope this information will be usefull for you.

Your example is really too succinct. It’s impossible to come up with a valid rule.
We need more information:
What is the general structure of each line?
What are the areas in double quotation marks, on each line, that need to be replaced ?
Does the replacement part have to be the same word as the one after the
In other words, help us identify the problem and help you effectively !
friends what I need is to change the text that is inside the quotes that have the country domains
“.mx” to “.usa”
“.ar” to “.usa”
the other text that has quotation marks, those don’t, I tried with
“[^”] + "
but change everything inside the quotes
“Concerto” “.uk” site: use
“usa” “.usa” site: use and I don’t want that

Hello, @vivianjenylord and All,
Some explanations on this regex S/R :
\.\w+searches a literal dot character, followed with a non-null range of word chars…
But ONLY IF the condition inside the look-ahead is
True. That is to say if, further on, in current line, a colon followed with a second non-null range of word chars, stored as group
1as embedded in parentheses, can be found
In replacement, we rewrite a dot, followed with the contents of group
1( the country name )
