This is my first experience translating Indesign CS2 files with TagEditor. I have SDL Trados 2007 on my PC. When I view .inx files in Indesign CS2, everything looks fine but after translating in Tageditor, I lose the text wrapping and I have not touched the tags in any way.

Can anyone help?

Thanks. Sonia

No error of TE Jan 10, 2008

As far as I know the text wrapping has to be adjusted in the dtp-software. You simply cannot do it in TE or other translation tools, it wouldn't make sense. I do not own any dtp software so I never bother to look at my translations in the final environment. If you have to deliver finalised versions you probably must find the function for text-wrap in your software.
What did you promise to the client?

Could missing images be the cause? Jan 11, 2008

I am at the testing stage right now with the client. I will be working with an independant graphic designer who will be making all final adjustments in Indesign as the client wants this handed to them ready to go. I am trying to minimize as much as possible the number of final adjustments to be made by the graphic designer.

What I'm not getting is that I see the line breaks for the text wrapping in TagEditor but when I view the .inx file in Indesign, all is lost. Could the fact that I don't yet have the images on file be causing this? Perhaps, since it does not have image to wrap around, it is simply not wrapping. I have asked my client to send me the pics.
