While trying to align two doc files, the alignment stops with the error message \"Don\'t use ; as a list separator in style name\". Change win.ini



Can anyone help?

Listentrennzeichen Mar 4, 2003

Hallo Alexandra.



das Problem kannst Du leicht lösen, indem Du über Systmsteuerung Ländereinstellungen im bereich der Zahlenformate das Listentrennzeichen auf , (Komma) umstellst.

Viele Grüße



Hans

I found the solution by myself, see below: Mar 4, 2003

To fix this problem, change the following Windows setting:



1. Click Start.



2. On the Settings menu, select Control Panel. The Control Panel opens.



3. Double-click the Regional Settings icon. The Regional Settings dialog box opens.



4. Click the Number tab.



5. In the List Separator text box, change the semicolon to a character of your choice, preferably a comma.



6. Click OK to confirm these settings to dismiss the Regional Settings dialog box.

Geht auch noch anders... Mar 4, 2003

Das Problem tritt immer dann auf, wenn man z. B. aus dem Ausland ein paar Word-Dateien bekommt, in denen abweichend benannte Formatvorlagen genutzt werden. Die abweichenden Namen werden von Word dann mit einem Semikolon getrennt zum ursprünglichen Namen der Formatvorlage zugefügt und lösen das Trados-Gemecker aus.



Man kann die Formatvorlagen auch einfach umbenennen, wenn man auf globale Änderungen in der Systemsteuerung verzichten möchte.



Wie man\'s nun macht, ist Geschmackssache.

This is not the only solution Mar 4, 2003

The other possibility is to change the style names, so that they do not have any \";\" more.

To do so one should go to Tools - Organising styles (or similar, this is taken from german Word) and then view style namens and locate those, where \";\" occurs.



Best

Jerzy

modify style names Mar 4, 2003

Hello Jerzy,



but please don\'t forget to change the style names back after the translation.



With kind regards



Hans
