Hello everybody,


I have to translate two manual chapters and as reference material I have received the other chapters pre-translated as ttx files.
It would be very hepful if I could convert them to the target source as ttx or any other format, so there wouldn't be any information about tags and segments, that is, to convert it in an easy readable file.
I have tried to clean the ttx file using workbench and the save target as option in tag editor, but I still get all the annoying tag and segment information.

Thank you very much for your help


Eva

Copy to Word Apr 25, 2008

Select all and copy to Word. Then you can search and remove all grey and red texts. The red tags I usually replace with one space, otherwise it could mess things up.
I don't know any other way.
Perhaps you should post in SDL Trados forum to get more answers.
Regards
Heinrich

TagEditor plugin Apr 25, 2008

There is a little known function of TagEditor - TradosTag Viewer Plugin. You have to activate it in the Tools/Plugins dialog and set its properties (I suppose HTML or Table View would be appropriate).

When you do that, click on the Preview tab at the bottom of the screen and your ttx file will be saved and previewed as HTML - without the tags (if you turn them off) and in a much more readable form.

The plugin uses predefined templates, but if you know how to handle CSS, you can output the file in any form you desire.
