Hi all,

I am testing the Across TEnT. Is there a way to keep source text in the target document? Sometimes I need to create bilingual documents.

And what is wrong with copying first source text to target, and then adding a translation?

No bilingual Word-file can be created with across Dec 14, 2010

Hi Stefano,
you cannot create bilingual files with across. AFAIK the only bilingual file you can get is exporting your finished translation as html-file with two columns (for source and target language) when the translation is displayed in correction mode.
