I have an EN>ZH translation of an index. However, the problem is that both the translator and proofreader left it in English alphabetical order. Here is an example:


E
电解质添加物,TPE操作程序2-5
终点,为TPE操作程序设置2-3
设备及用品
LPE操作程序7-2
血小板去除操作程序5-2
RBCX操作程序4-2


I am thinking of rearranging the index according to hanyu pinyin. It will take a lot of time, and I don't think I can charge the client extra for this. Do you think this is necessary? What is the best way to do it?

把它们拷贝到EXCEL,使用EXCEL里的排序功能即可,然后再复制到WORD Nov 14, 2006

如果你是外语系统,需要在CONTROL PANEL将地区数字格式改变为中国。

We can use UltraEdit-32 to rearrange the text like the following(English in alphabetical order and Chinese in hanyu pinyin order):
E
LPE操作程序7-2
RBCX操作程序4-2
电解质添加物,TPE操作程序2-5
设备及用品
血小板去除操作程序5-2
终点,为TPE操作程序设置2-3

Are you referring to the "Region and Language Option" icon in the CONTROL PANEL? I am using German Windows, so I am a bit lost...

這招好,偷學到了。

對了,昨夜真的通宵,五點半闔眼,七點半 morning call (這詞怎譯中文的?),和一位譯者聊了一個早上,下午做半天工。現在勁兒來了,催你過去你那一欄,酒香正濃,你還要讓我們饞多久?今天和一位年輕有為的譯者小聊,說到我們這些老傢伙應該到巴黎找 chance 開一場中文 Powwow,到時你可別忘了為我們準備點兒夠味的。嘿嘿。

In Windows XP

1.
In Regional and Language options->
Under 'Languages" tab

make sure you have select both
> "Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai), AND
> Install files for East Asian Languages

Then Click Ok. If the fonts have not be installed, it will ask you for the CD.

2.
In "Advanced" tab for non-unicode options
Select "Chinese (Taiwan)" If you are a CHT user (TW + HK)
Select "Chinese (PRC)" If you are a CHS user (China)

ok..then restart

The above steps somewhat similar in Windows 2000. I hope this help.

It worked!! Nov 15, 2006

Cool! I did what Bill and Chance taught me and it worked! It was amazing to see how Excel sort Chinese text. Thanks to all of you!!

Unfortunately, I don't think I can use Chance's method. The problem now is that some items have sub-items. If I just copy and paste them into Excel for sorting, I will mix them up.

Guess I have to do this manually... There goes my weekend.

weiwei, Sorry 白让你饶了一圈 Nov 15, 2006

隐士说得对,在word里就可以完成,而且可以排sub-items。在word帮助里查“排列”关键字后,会有详细说明。

Nope, don't have to say sorry. You've been a great help. It's good that I learned something. I tried to sort the index, but it did not work. The whole thing got messed up.
