Hello,

I did a translation that was supposed to be done with Trados. However, my computer with Trados got messed up and I couldn't use it. So, I used another one to do the same translation, without Trados however. Now, the client asks for unclean files. Is there any way to do deliver somehow the translation as unclean files? Please help me out. I have access to Trados now, but it might be too late:( Thank you, Erneto.

Well...euhm, the only way I can think of is to run Trados to the source text again and manually drag and drop the translated sentences into the yellow bar.
Unfortunately this is going to take a LOT of time!!!!

But I don't think there's another way... (though I'm not 100% sure)


Good luck!

Maybe... Jan 29, 2007

you could try this.

Run your two files (original and translated) through WinAlign, which will allow you to create a new TM, which you can then use in Trados to do a "translate to fuzzy" (runs through the text until it finds a less than 100% match, which shouldn't happen if you do your WinAlign task properly.

Hope this helps before it is too late!

Cheers,

Bill
