I'm using a version of OmegaT 2.0.5. version 4.
I need to solve the following: I often have source segments which do not need to be translated (which is why, by default, I chose to leave blank the target segments). However, OmegaT copies these untranslated source segments to the document in the target folder, and I have to remove them manually. Is there is setting to avoid this?
Thanks in advance,
Maria J

Just a blank space for that segment. That's what I do. If there's a more sophisticated way to do it, I don't know what it is.

Then why don’t you remove them from the source documents? OmegaT produces translations by reproducing structures of the source files, that’s why it can’t skip something and therefore has no such setting.
