Hello to everyone.
Is it possible to apply untranslatable text attribute when translating .xls files in Word Fast, when you need to translate text only in some of the cells and leave the others without change?

Hi Sergei,

I have little experience in translating xls files, but you could try selecting the cells that do not need translating and changing the font properties to e.g. strikethrough and tell WF that you're using that format as untranslatable.

The other option is copy the table to word and apply the unstranslatable style there (that you know it'll work).

Hope this helps!
Grace.

It can't be done Jan 2, 2005

You can hide columns or reduce their size to 0 to make Wordfast skip them, but you can't do this to individual cells, as far as I know.

Regards,
Gerard
