I need some help, please.

I'm translating a technical manual (an OpenOffice file, i.e. .odt) using memoQ and the format of the exported translated file is different from the original one, so I have to copy and paste the translation parties on the original file to maintain the Client format.

Do you know any other procedure to avoid this problem? (The Client does not want to pass to InDesign, unfortunatelly).

Working this way, the translation procedure is much longer.

Of course, I could work directly on the document to be translated, but I have many repetitions to catch and I want to be sure I copy and edit all of them properly.

Thanks for any help.
