Hi,

I have a large file in a word document for a translation in parts. Therefore I need to divide the file in equal parts. Is there any software or procedure in MS Word that can do that automatically ?

I know that I can make x copies of the masterfile and then do the sorting out myself (crtl+B) plus suppression of the non needed texts but I find this cumbersome and subject to mistakes. So if there would be an "automatic" solution that is proven I am sure that a lot of us will enjoy it.

Thanks in advance for your reply. Manuella

Older versions of word USED to have... Aug 22, 2017

...such a feature, for splitting a document (and then reassembling it later!); there is also the 'master document' function which may be what you need; however, I don't know if these same functions are still available in Word 2016?

If you are splitting it for different people to translate, do perhaps consider how useful it is for a translator to be able to see the WHOLE document, for wider context and sometimes explanations; when I am asked to translate part of a larger document, i awlays insist on this as a sine qua non.

There are also file split / merge utilities Aug 22, 2017

I don't know if one of these might help you? They are really intended for splitting very large files into smaller chunks, but would probably do what you need — except for the fact that of course splitting at file level will mean that the position of the splits at document level may be quite arbitrary.
