Trados 7.0

Anyone tell me how to toggle-off the setting which makes all segments begin with 'capital' letters when I am using 'commas' as segment separators in the 'setup' setting?

(Hope that makes sense to someone...)

Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

Which file format? Feb 18, 2006

Hi Steven,
You didn't mention which file format you're working on. To me, this doesn't sound like a Trados function, but like a setting in MS Word...

Best regards,
Ralf

Ralf,

Thanks for replying!

I'm using a WORD.DOC source file. Does it sound then more like a setting in WORD to you? I'm pretty new to Trados.

Thanks for any tips...ie: how/where to disable this in WORD?

Cheers

Steve

Depends on your Word version... Feb 19, 2006

Hi again,

I'm using a WORD.DOC source file. Does it sound then more like a setting in WORD to you? I'm pretty new to Trados.

Thanks for any tips...ie: how/where to disable this in WORD?


The command sequence may differ slightly in older Word versions; in Word 2003, it's Tools - Options - Spelling and Grammar - Grammar - Settings - Punctuation...: check if the box for "Start sentence with capitals" is enabled.

(Note that I'm using the German version; the commands set out above may differ.)

HTH, Ralf

right-click option... Feb 19, 2006

Ralf,

Thanks for your suggestion. Mine's in Portuguese!

I ended up finding another way. When a segment starts and the capital letter automatically appears, a blue mini-underline appears and when I right-clicked on that, it opened up a list of automatic options. I was able to toggle-off the two capital letter options and it now works perfectly!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! I'd assumed it was a Trados thing.

Sincere thanks indeed for all your help!

Hope you have had a pleasant weekend and the coming week is a productive one.

Cheers,

Steve
