Hi, all

I would like to know if Trados is compatible with Robohelp files, as this is a potential assgnment. I would appreciate all information available. I work with Trados 5.5.and would be starting with Robohelp from nought in two months´time.

Thank you all in advance,

Haydée

Hi Haydée,

it depends on the file format of the files to translate. If they are in HTML then they should be translated with TagEditor which should work. However, if they are in MS Word, then you will run into problems. The reason is that in Word Robohelp uses bookmarks to mark certain parts of texts (e.g. index entries). Workbench uses bookmarks too and as a result corrupts the bookmarks from Robohelp.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Ulrich

Robohelp Word files Oct 14, 2004

Hello,

i think, that Doc2Help uses bookmarks.
Robohelp creates files in the RTF Online help structure. The index entries are stored in footnotes.

There is a chapter in the file format guide from Trados which explains how to work with this file type.

Should be no really problem to work with

Hans

Hello,

oops! Hans is absolutely right. My fault: I mixed up the two. Silly me.

Cheers,

Ulrich
