Dear friends,

I have a excel file including 3 columns as following:

ID Product_Name Description
101 Hello world {When asking for help, make sure that you:
  • indicate

    the file format(s) involved
  • specify each software package that is relevant to

    your posting, identifying the version with the *full* version number
  • describe the

    step(s) or process(es) which have triggered the problem.
  • This will help others to help

    you. }


    --------------------------
    the content of between '{' and '}' is 3rd column.because i can't format it as excel in here. So..
    Anyway, The description include some tags,and these should be set as External in Trados. Actually, I only need translate 'Product_Name' and 'Description' --2 columns:

    My localization method is :-
    1.Copy 3 columns to Office Word, and Mark relative tag by VBA
    2.Translate Marked file using Trados.and then cleanup them.
    3.Remove trados style which was marked before translating.
    ----------------------------------------------------
    According to above.we can localize this kind of file, but i think it's not best way to localize.Because i must copy content to office word,and adjust word format in order to make localization easy and better done.So I hope everybody here can give me your idea on same. Any advices will be welcome.

    Thanks
