I have a source file with quite a few tags – <b> </b> <p>, but also [+CTRLON+], [+QUVAL+] etc. –, and I tagged it, so all such tags now appear in a different style ("tw4winInternal", as opposed to "translatable").
Trados Tageditor has no problems with it: it treats the tags as tags, and I can copy them as placeables. But Wordfast does not seem to care too much about them: when I press ctrl+alt+down (copy placeable) it does nothing - moreover, when I write something in the target-language field and there are missing tags it does not remind me that I have forgotten something.
I could see in the WF manual that there are Pandora's Box commands like "PlaceableBetween=[],(),{}" - but is there something like "Placeable=Style{tw4winInternal}" - so that everything that is in that particular style would be treated as placeable?
I use WF 5.52 with Word 2002.

You need to select the tag using Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right first. When this is done, Ctrl+Alt+Down will paste the tag in target. Alternatively, press Alt+Insert to paste the source text in target and overwrite whatever needs translation.

- moreover, when I write something in the target-language field and there are missing tags it does not remind me that I have forgotten something.


You need to activate this option first. See Setup > QC tab in Wordfast. Check "Identical tags in source/target".

tw4winInternal tags are treated as internal tags by default (although you can customise this on the Setup > General tab in Wordfast).

TOPIC STARTER
Many thanks, David Nov 28, 2007

All problems resolved.
Indeed, I forgot to choose the placeable: as you don't have to do it in Trados Tageditor, I thought WF would also automatically select the first one to insert.
And I got as far as Setup > QC, and checked "Identical tags in source/target" - but I did not check "Enable the following QC options during translation".
Best regards,
Attila
