I have a Visio diagram embedded in Word. Each time I click on the diagram, I can edit it. However, when I close the Visio diagram to return to Word, the diagram appears miniscule, so you can't see it. Click on the diagram again, and the English translation is there and it's fine.

Does anyone know how to make sure Word displays Visio diagrams correctly once you've translated them?

I'm using Visio 2002 and Word 2002.

or so to reveal the Visio picture. I have worked in Visio, it wasn't that difficult, but I'm not sure if you can work in it if you don't have the software on your computer. If it is not too complex, you could try to recreate it in Power Point or something. Check with your client as you cannot be asked to work miracles. I often get pictures in all types of different exotic software that I do not own and I just type the translation in a different file with the source and target texts plus appropriate page numbers.

Good luck,

I tried to reproduce your problem... Jun 27, 2003

but I couldn´t find any such error (I use the same Visio and Word versions as you do). Perhaps it´s simply a refreshing problem. Have you tried saving and opening the document again?. Do the drawings still seem small?.

If that doesn´t work send me a page of the orginal and a page after you translate it and I´ll see if I can solve it (Visio is an old friend of mine...). I am assuming of course there are no confidentiality issues involved!.
