I have to assess and price a job which has come in on a txt file and needs to be translated with TAGEDITOR.
I use TRADOS very often but I have never used TAGEDITOR.
What I have done is opened TEDitor and opened the txt file.
I used the same keys as I do TRADOS and it seems to be translating ok. - I hope!

I have 2 urgent problems.
1. .. How do you calculate the work??? In word I always use the word calculator to count the characters then (as is normal in Italy) I divide by 1500 .. to get what they call a 'page'. Any suggestions please how to count the translatable characters??

2.. I find that I have the two lines .. source and target when I am translating -- and it repeats the source text in the target line if there is no fuzzt ranslation etc. ... Is there a way of setting this so it is BLANK like in TRADOS ?? ...

Thank you all in advance

Jenny

Use the Analyse function.

Not sure what you mean by "like in Trados" - this is a Workbench setting: Options - Translation Memory Options - General - Switches: deactivate Copy source on no match.

HTH, Ralf

Thanks!! Mar 7, 2006

Thank you so much!
Apologise that I was in the wrong forum.

I used analyse and that calculated the words. Sorry didn't think of that because here we never calculate per word.

I also unflagged the copy option and so I have blank now - perfect!

I am trying to change the colour scheme : I thought I had succeded using TAGEDITOR - Tools - Plugins - TradosTag viewer plugin ... but until now it is still ALL in Black font.

I will pursue!!

Thank you so much for your help

Jenny

Not to have the source appear on your target, I think you can remove the chekmark in Workbench - Options - Translation memory options - Copy source on no match.

I'm not 100% sure but I think that's it...

Regards!
