Hi everybody,
when using the function "translate until next fuzzy" in word, the view always changes from "side" to "normal" (or is it standard? -sorry, I am using German interface). How can I make Trados not change the view? I always work in the side layout and would prefer Trados to do so as well. Is it possible?
Thanks for any hints,
Inga

The Trados manual recommends you work in Normal view... Mar 15, 2007

... because otherwise Word will repaginate the whole document every time you close/open a segment.

Always work in Normal view rather than in Page Layout or Outline view.When you work in Normal view,Word does not have to repaginate each time you start translating a new sentence.
To set Normal view,select Normal on the View menu in Word.

(p. 93 of the TranslatorsWorkbench PDF manual)

Repagination can take forever with a large document and since translation to fuzzy involves opening and closing segments, I suppose Trados is just trying to save you some time by reverting to Normal view
