Hi there - I have a pretty urgent request for help. I have translated about 30,000 words in Tag Editor (HTML documents) and now, when it comes to clean-up time, certain sentences are missing, words aren't there, there are huge gaps, some things are left in Spanish...

I've checked the .ttx document and all the stuff is translated, it's all there, but parts just don't appear in the cleaned up version - anybody got any ideas????

Gracias y salu2,

Paul

Do not use the cleanup process in Workbench Sep 28, 2006

but instead use the "Save target as" command inn the Tageditor file menu.
Save the translation with the same name in another folder.

Usually this should work.
TBH I do not know any other solution.

Regards
Jerzy

PS
I´ve moved the topic to the SDL Trados suport forum.
Please use this forum for any requests regarding SDL Trados software.
I also edited the headline (removing capital letters).

I had such problems long time ago Sep 28, 2006

I even got to Trados support people then, who pointed out that the html source was badly written. I seems that html code is rahter "tolerant" - even with some mistakes, the results seen in a web browser can be kind of OK, but TagEditor may have problems with that. I do not know if this is your problem too - my solution was to use "save target as" and compare the code of the resulting files with the originals, correcting manually where the codes were different.

Painful and time conmuming, but I did not find another way.

Perhaps yours is a different situation, hard to say...

HTH

Run Tagverifier then on that file Sep 28, 2006

Are you sure in Tageditor everything is really translated?
Or is the file getting some infomation (link) from elswhere?

Running the verifier wil ensure you, that there are no TAG errors.

Sorry, but I cannot help further, my knowledge as far html is concerned is to limited.

Regards
Jerzy

Badly written HTML Sep 28, 2006

This might be the problem. Are there any tags visible in the text? Not as placeable tags, but as plain editable text? If yes, they will be lost after cleanup and it could affect the whole document.
