Hallo alle,

Kann man Excel-Dateien mit Wordfast übersetzen? Ich habe
zwar auch Trados, aber es noch nicht benutzt bisher...nun
will dieser Kunde, die Exccel-Datei mit Trados übersetzt
haben. Normalerweise nehme ich immer Wordfast, weil niemand
den Unterschied merkt. Aber nun...?

Viele liebe Grüße
Gaby

Read the manual Sep 26, 2005

Wordfast.doc sagt dazu:
Excel, PowerPoint & Access
This feature should be tested before use, because Wordfast may have difficulties initiating the necessary Ms-Office links.

1. Start Excel (or PowerPoint or Access), open the sheet (or presentation or table), place the cursor in the cell (or slide/shape or record/field) where the translation should begin (note: do not actually enter the cell/shape/field, as when you want to edit it - just position the cursor on it).
2. Go back to Ms-Word, start a Wordfast translation session on an empty Ms-Word document.

Ich kopiere Excel-Spalten nach Word und übersetze sie ganz normal mit Wf, aber du kannst ja die Methode aus der Anleitung probieren.

Grüße

Heinrich

So habe ich das vor ein paar Jahren mal gemacht, es ging erstaunlich gut.icon_smile.gif

I haven't used WF for direct Excel translations (I use the copy-to-Word method, but that's mainly because most of the Excel files I get are multilingual and require only one column to be translated), but it is supposed to work.

One thing to note (assuming that WF handles direct Excel translation the same way as direct PowerPoint translation) is that any editing you do the the translated text after WF has accepted it WILL NOT be reflected in the Excel file. That means you have to get everything right the first time or post-edit the Excel content after you've edited the 'working' Word file created using WF.

Also, with PP files the 'Translate until fuzzy' button causes the WF session to terminate prematurely (end of current slide), so it's highly inconvenient. That probably won't happen with an Excel file.

PS: apologies for replying in English.

Du kannst, wie Heinrich, es erzählte genauso wie die Anleitung fortfahren. Es geht.
Du musst nur drauf achten, dass Du eine Kopie der excel Datei speicherst bevor Du mit der Übersetzung in Word anfängst, denn sobald Du anfängst in Word, es übernimmt es automatisch in Excel.
Viel Spaß
