Dear colleagues,

the following problem occured:
I could import and open a .docx file (and translate it) without any problems. Every content of the numerous text fields has been imported and translated. When re-converting the translated project file, those text fields contained without exception just the source text. Because I am in a hurry, I saved the source file as .doc, pretranslated it and then I could export a nice target-doc with all text fields translated. Why couldn´t DVX2 convert the original .docx? Many thanks for any hints!

Best regards,

Matthias

embedded objects? Mar 12, 2012

You may need to update those fields in translated document, simply click in them, fields will be updated - looks like a miracle. There are problems with legacy embedded objects created with previous versions of Office applications, e.g. an Excel 2003 table in Word 2007.

But Atril has a solution for it as well. There is a Deja Vu X2 menu in Word 2007 (and other Office 2007 applications). In that menu you will find Convert All Objects to Office 2007/2010 and Refresh All Objects.

Refresh All Objects is easier than clicking in all those fields.

Selcuk

Didn´t work Mar 12, 2012

Hi Selcuk,

thank you for your reply. Yes, I already noticed the function you mentioned, but it unfortunately didn´t work. Also the phenomena clicking into those fields didn´t work like you described.

Best regards,

Matthias

Second (or third?) attempt was succesul Mar 14, 2012

...I repeatedly imported the source, pretranslated it and for no reason I finally succeeded even in the .docx. Strange enough...
