Hi everyone!
I have just finished translating (English-Spanish) a big word doc with lots of footnotes and have recently noticed that my Trados toolbar has disappeared and have finally managed to fix it. I read in other posts that this might be related to an unappropriate use of footnotes and I would like to know what I did wrong!
I am aware that I did not follow the standard translation order for fuzzy matches in the main text (once, I think I quite plainly copied the superscript reference in the main text from the source into the goal segment. I blush to think of that!).
When I started realising how dirty that procedure was, I changed it and did the following:
1. I copied my fuzzy match into a blank doc.
2. I copied the source (alt+insert) into the goal segment.
3. I recopied the fuzzy match from the blank doc back into the goal segment (thus overwriting the English and preserving the superscript reference).
I hope my explanation is clear enough. Thanks!
