Hello,

my MS-Word seems to be stubborn and does not let me translate the "label" of the field "Revision" in the DOCPROPERTY group of fields.

Is it possible to translate this kind of field?


Here is how the field looks like:

{ DOCPROPERTY Revision \* MERGEFORMAT }

After pressing Alt+F9 to close the field again, the document shows "Revision", which I have to translate to "Revisão".

I even tried "Edit Field..." -> "Field Codes" and changed "Revision" to "Revisão", but after that Word indicates this error in the field:

Error! Unknown document property name


Did anyone have a problem like this before? Is it possible to fix it?

I would appreciate any help!

Kind regards,
Marcos

It worked! Nov 12, 2007

Thanks a lot, Philippe, it worked!

Now another problem: the text I am to proofread was produced in a German MS-Word, so that it generated some German titles, for example, "Abbildungsverzeichnis" in the TOC, which in my text should actually be "Índice de ilustrações". I looked (almost) everywhere in Word but could not find the place where I can configure the names of parts of styles. I think this has something to do with styles, but I can't seem to find it.

Can you help me out of that?

Thanks again!

Regards,
Marcos

I don't understand Portuguese or German.
Try Insert>Reference>tables and indices>Index tab>mark Entry button.
