Know behaviour, but I´m afraid this is Word fault Jul 13, 2005

You are getting in such loop, when table contains connected cells - or at least it happens then mostly.

You don´t need to close Workbench to stop the loop. It is enough to click once into Workbench window. After that close the text unit with "ALT+END" and translate the table without using the function "Translate to fuzzy".

Regards
Jerzy

what is connected cells? how can I avoid it Jul 15, 2005

hi, Jerzy,
thank you very much for your reply. I have to ask further: what is connected cells? how are they identified? so that I know how to prepare table based files for trados

regards

Lewis

Cells forming a loop Jul 15, 2005

Hi Lewis,
There's nothing that you can do in terms of 'preparation' - sometimes tables are authored in a way that cells form a loop. Have a look at the (original) file where you witnessed this behaviour - cells are most probably nested in a way that the way out of the last cell in the loop goes straight back to the beginning. (This can happen where a cell has been extended across more than one line.)

Not a big issue, though - if you get into such a loop, stop Translate to Fuzzy, placing the cursor manually into the next line if necessary.

Best regards,
Ralf
