I need to translate a PPS file using Trados, but I can't open the segments using T-windows for powerpoint. It tells me the file is using unavailable fonts.
Any ideas?

You have first to search for the fonts in Power point Feb 9, 2006

I don't exactly remember how, since I haven't had to use this function for a while, but the problem is due to the fact that Power Point is using some fonts you don't have on your machine.

In Power point you need to search for these fonts, replace them with something you do have (but that are not used elsewhere in the presentation), tranalate, then at the end replace back the fonts to those originally used in the power point (this is why you need to replaced the unavailable fonts with fonts not used elsewhere in the presentation).
