I have a translation in Powerpoint, and I use T-Window for Powerpoint (Trados 6.5 FL). My OS is Windows XP Home and Powerpoint is 2000. The problem is this: after opening T-Window, Trados Workbench and the Powerpoint file that I want to translate, I click on Trados Open/get for the first TU, and in this moment all disappears: the PPT file, T-Window. Trados Workbench looses any link to Multiterm.
Does anyone have a solution? Thanks indeed.

You can open and translate the PowerPoint file with TagEditor.

If you have the latest Trados release, you should handle ppt-files very easily. Open your ppt with TE and it will convert it into a ttx-file, which you can translate as usual. Once translated, save the target file as a ppt and TE will convert it back (converting may take quite long if the files are large ones). You have to check the formatting then.

Saving the file before finishing the translation Oct 21, 2004

Hi, I'm Roberta.

I have a question about saving ppt files translating with TE.
If I have to deliver part of the translated text bofore completing the whole translation. I use the: Save target.. command. But then when I close the TE file it asks me if I want to save and I sey yes... but then I have problems...
Can someone explain me the right procedure?
Thank you!

Can you describe the problems in more detail? Oct 21, 2004

Hi Roberta,

But then when I close the TE file it asks me if I want to save and I sey yes...

I suppose this then refers to the TTX file, right?

but then I have problems...

It's a bit difficult to offer remedies without knowing exactly what the problem is. Can you please provide more details?

Cheers, Ralf
