Thanks in advance for your help!

I am translating a large project, inn Word XP, Windows XP, Trados 6.0.

The file begins with an Index (the kind that you cannot write on, it gets shadowed and takes to whatever page you click on)... Is there any way to work around this so I can translate it with trados?

Any hint will be greatly appreciated.

MAY THE POPE REST IN PEACE!

You don't translate it Apr 6, 2005

You only translate the headers throughout the text and let Word create the index when you are done, before you send the file to the customer.
How to re-generate the index see your Word Help. I have a Finnish version and cannot tell you more specific. Something like Add - Index...

Translate the whole tex as usually Apr 6, 2005

If it is formatted properly, what you then need is to click once somwhere in the "table of contents" and press F9. Word will ask you, if you wish only to actualise page referencies or to regenerate the whole index - chose the second option and you're done.

For indices, you have to translate them as described in Trados manual/help, and then to remove the original table of indices and regenerate it again (insert - field - contents or simila, my Word is german).
