in thread Is there a way I can substitute for ":" except when it is preceded by a letter C

That's not quite right, the * makes it match even if there's 0 C's, turning all colons into apostrophes, not just the intended ones
s/(^|[^C]):/$1'/g
fixes that, but won't work if there is multiple colons in a row. A negative lookbehind is probably the only way to do this properly.
