Source text in Trados is displayed as not hidden
Thread poster: Coreen

Sometimes the text translated is displayed with some segments of the source text next to it (paragraph mark off). The source text which should be hidden (there is no dots under it)is not. I noticed that most of the times it happens when the text is in tables. So far I have used Format Painter hide the source segments. Any other suggestion more efficient? Thanks

You can give it a try.

Cleanup May 6, 2005

Just clean the document up and everything should be fine.

A similar question has been asked two days ago:

Thank you May 6, 2005

Atthough the document will clean fine, I wonder if there is something that can be done to avoid this. Thank you for your help.

Cleanup May 9, 2005

I try to avoid the standard Trados cleanup (activated from the Workbench) as far as possible - the Word/rts conversion involved in this process quite often causes problems.

And I send uncleaned translations for proofreading to people not necessarily familiar with Trados.

These are the reasons why I use the preprocession of tables I mention above.
