I was wondering whether there was any way of capturing a whole web site and use it in Word instead of copying and pasting every single page?

I would like to create a TM of an original web site and its other language equivalent.

Thanks so much for any ideas or thoughts on thisicon_wink.gif

It's not as simple as it sounds. It all depends on the Web site, and even in the best of cases, making a TM that way is gonna be a pain.

Assuming yours is a static web site, save the pages (in IE, file/save as or View/source, then save) with a txt extension. Replace </p&mt; and <br&mt; by paragraph marks. Then as all you care about is a TM, remove all the code. In many cases, it will be as easy as

Find: \
Replace:
with wildcards on.

When you have source and target files without code, I guess you know what to do.

The solution is not elegant, but it will work with a static content.

Hi,

You just need to get Acrobat : capture all your site and save it as .rtf. That's all !
Bye,
