Hello,
I am translating an Excel file with TagEditor (Trados version 7.1) and I am unable to see the hidden text (comments). Is there a way of doing it in TagEditor or do I have to translate each cell without Trados?
TIA
Mireille

Excel Filter Settings May 2, 2006

Hi Mireille,

From p. 238 of the FileFormatsRef_en.pdf manual that comes with the Trados SDL 2006 package:

C By default,the Excel filter does not process comments. As a result,they are not presented for translation in the TRADOStag document.
If you wish to translate comments, you can modify the relevant setting in the Excel filter settings file (...). Alternatively, you can extract comments manually and translate them in a separate file.

p.239

To run the Filter Settings application:
1 Select Start >Programs >SDL International >SDL Trados 2006 >Filters >Filter Settings . The Filter Settings application opens.
2 Click Excel filter settings and select an option [NB Go to the "Content and macro processing" tab and tick "Translate comments"] . Follow the directions shown for each setting to make changes.
3 Click Apply to save your changes.

HTH

Giles
