Dear all,
After being a while in different translator forums, I noted that a lack of knowledge in Microsoft Word is the source of *many* technical problems encountered by translators, especially when working with Trados or Wordfast.

Having a bit of spare time lately, I wrote several pages describing basic and not so basic functions of Word presenting a particular interest to translators, including common shortcuts, how to customize shortcuts, and Word's workspace, Find and Replace, tables, recording macros, and a few other things.

Those interested can find the pages at www.your-translations.com

Cheers,
Sylvain

Thanks, Sylvain Jun 14, 2003

Many thanks, Sylvain

Very interesting, and useful tips! While I do think that I'm Word savvy, there's always something new to learn... and your excellent work will contribute to help us.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

And, by the way, I also understood why Thailand!

Regards,

Clarisa Moraña

Another resource Jun 14, 2003

Another very useful resource for Word users is "Special Edition Using Microsoft Word 2000" by Bill Camarda (also available for other versions)- ISBN: 0-7897-1852-9. It gives detailed explanations, with examples and screen shots on just about every page.

For more information see www.quecorp.com

Cheers,

Suzanne
