For sure it must be something very silly what I need to do, but I cannot figure out how to solve this problem. I have some "symbols" in my translation (Word format) , in between sentences, and the doc. shows the original and the translated version altogether. I must have clicked on the wrong button, I don't know but I can't get back to the previous format (the clean one!)

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Natalia,
Nothing wrong at all - in fact, this is the way it should be.

The issue of hidden text has been discussed on numerous occasions in this forum - kindly use the forum search.

Best regards,
Ralf

Go to Tools > Options > View tab and uncheck the "show hidden text" field.
The "strange" purple marks you see are tags inserted by Trados. Never alter them, otherwise the entire document structure will be disrupted.
