I'm using OmegaT for translating a document, but it shows a lot of segments on long paragraphs like these ones:

- Concepto de <

How can I take them out? or is it problem of the document file?

I have replaced lower and greater than signs in your quote with square brackets, because ProZ's forums cannot display the former characters.

You have to clean your document.
See
http://www.omegat.org/en/howtos/docx.html
especially "How to remove unwanted formatting code from .docx files".

Using CodeZapper or Document Cleaner is usually the simplest way.

Or, if formatting is not important in this document, you can check Remove Tags in the project properties. This will keep paragraph formatting, but will remove all inline formatting (e.g., bold, italic, inside sentences).

You can actually make Proz.com display them by using standard HMTL entities of &lt; and &gt;:

segment numbers? Mar 11, 2016

I assume you mean tags, not segment numbers, since that's what Didier and Esperantisto replied about. The actual segment numbers (the number at the end of each segment) does not interfere with anything, does not appear in the target text, and is just to help you navigate through the document.

That's why I do not bother anymore.
