Look for shortcuts Mar 18, 2008

In Help you can search for shortcuts. When a new segment is open, pressing Alt+Ctrl+Pg down would expand, Pg up shrink you segment.

Heinrich

Hi,

I referred the Help topics by giving the search. The shortcuts mentioned are already tried before asking the help in this forum. I am not able to Expand/Shrink the segment in .ttx file using TagEditor. I am not able to do this in both monolingual and bilingual files. It is quite possible that I am missing out any step(s) or not following proper steps.

Could you please explain the steps?

Two possible reasons Mar 19, 2008

...why this doesn't work:

1.
The file has already been (pre-)translated - you can only expand into an untranslated segment.

2.
You're trying to expand across a section break or other end-of-segment marker.

HTH, Ralf

please suggest Mar 20, 2008

Yes, both points are correct.
The file is pre-translated and the broken segment has got the following codes in the starting, ending and in between:
//AB
//zu tun

It is a section break or end-of-segment marker that I don’t know. There is no mark other than ‘//’. The .ttx file is pre-translated but this particular segment is not translated.

When I open the ‘//AB’ segment and click on ‘Expand segment’ the translation already available in the TM is automatically copied at the cursor position.

Could you please suggest me in this regard? How to do the Expand Segment in this existing condition?

Expanding segments in Trados Freelance 7 Mar 26, 2008

Actually, I have a very similar problem. I'm translating a *.xml document using Trados and I need to join segmets with inlinemedia objects and textobjects (the tags used are inlinemdiaobject - imageobject - imagedata - /imageobject and in the second segment textobject - phrase - /phrase - /textobject - /inlinemediaobject. So in fact, the inlinemediaobject tag is closed in the second segment, however, it is impossible to joint the segments using the standard command from the Workbench menu.

Can you help me with this problem, please?
