Source and target text are visible - as designed Oct 17, 2006

Hi Hugo,
This issue has been discussed numerous times in this forum - just search for "hidden text". In fact, it is recommended to display source and target during interactive translation, to prevent damaging tags.

HTH, Ralf

Please do not use "sharp" brackets from keyboard in your post Oct 17, 2006

Your post is beeing truncated after the < sign.
In order to get the < or > sign you must use html entities (here written with spaces - they have to be removed): & lt ; for < and & gt ; for >

Regards
Jerzy

Read the manuals and follow the tutorials Oct 17, 2006

Yours is a problem of lack of knowledge. This is a complex (very complex) application and you need to go over the tutorials and manuals, even more than once. This is not a program to install and go blindly about it or you will soon be saying that TRADOS is not worth it and that you wasted your money, and you will stop using it because you will get frustrated.

So do yourself the biggest favor in a long time:
search the TRADOS forum in Proz,
peruse the Knowledge Base in TRADOS home page,
print everything you find and can get your hands on, and
read and play the tutorials.

Most likely, the next time something weird happens you would remember you already read the solution somewhere.
