I recently translated some PowerPoint files with T-Windows (I now know better due to a recent post to this forum) and obviously fed my TM as I went along. However, once I was done with the files, I obviously made a few changes to little typos and then saved them before removing original segments.

My question is simply: is there any way to update a TM with a PPT, before removing original segments, as Workbench does with Word docs during cleaning?

Versions:
Trados 6.5.2.417
Multiterm 6.2.0.279
PowerPoint 2003

Thanks,

Alan

Not with T-Window, I'm afraid... Jun 2, 2004

Hi Alan,
This isn't possible with T-Window, I'm afraid - you could run a cleanup operation if you had used TagEditor.

Sorry...

Best regards, Ralf

Update in T-Window Jun 2, 2004

Hello,

you can start at the beginning of your Powerpoint file and then translate to Fuzzy. At every point where TM and file have diferent translations the process will stop and you can update your TM.

OK, that's precisely what I'll do with the files I already have.

And from now on it's TE all the way for me!

Thanks to you both,

Alan
