Has someone any experience or possibly a workout for translating a Corel Draw 11 file using Trados?

The file contains some text boxes (quite few each page, but they contain a lot of text).

This text boxes can be opened and the text can be selected sentence by sentece. But T-Window for Clipboarg does not react on Ctrl+C, although when usinng Word and translating text from a text box this way works.

Is there a better way to go?

Perhaps other CAT?


Kind regards

I don't think so Feb 3, 2003

Czesc Jerzy,

I posted exactly the same question a few months ago. (


To cap it up: no smart workaround solution exists, you have to manually open all textboxes.

Agree... Feb 3, 2003

Unfortunately, I have to agree with Csaba Ban.

I am a long-time Corel Draw user, and don´t know any other method for doing it.
