Hi Folks,

Recently, I have been doing more work with INX format files. One client has noted that the hyphenation seems "broken" (e.g. "outsta-nding" instead of "out-standing") when he re-imports the files I have translated into InDesign.

Since hyphenation is apparently not used in Deja Vu, does anyone have any advice on the best strategy here?

Perhaps turn off hyphenation in InDesign before exporting/importing? Tweak the filter somehow (?)

My client is using InDesign CS3 and I am using the latest DVX Professional build.

TIA,


Ed

... but running it through TagEditor and use the ttx filter might be worth trying, too.

...to set the correct language for the translated text after the re-import. To me, this looks like a typical case of source language hyphenation for a translated text.

HTH,

Benjamin

Great tips! Mar 26, 2009

Thanks for the hints!

I have supplied my client with a TRADOS "version" .. will wait and see how that turns out.

Benjamin's point about language selection is also extremely well made! I'll pass that on and let you both know how it turns out.

Thanks for your help!


Ed
