Hello, I'm dealing with a Word document. In the "Table of Contents", each heading line is made into a link. When I click it, no space appears below as those in other parts of the document. Could anybody encounter the same case and give any suggestions? Great thanks in advance!

Tables of contents in Word docs, provided that they are automatic, can be updated automatically after finishing translation. No need to translate them.

Another note on TOCs Sep 29, 2007

Piotr is, of course, absolutely right - no need to translate a TOC in Word.

Yet, and this is the case in Hebrew, and probably in other languages: you sometimes have to put a lot of (frustrating) effort into formatting the automatically created TOC.

This is another reason to do the TOC absolutely at the end - if you change a heading in the text after you finished with it, and wish to update the TOC, you're in formatting trouble all over again...

Good luck, Doron
