Hi --

Has anyone had troubles translating PowerPoint slides with animation?

There is apparently a known bug in the software. It severaly corrupts slide animation in certain cases.

In a large project we\'ve been working on, we\'ve discovered this affects many slides from certain authors who use a lot of custom animation. Basically, Trados is useless for translating the slide because you have to go back and repaste your translation into the original source page and copy it.

What I\'m wondering is: Has anybody else found a decent way around this problem?

Would be very happy to hear from anyone about this. (And I only hope that Trados will make an effort to fix this problem ASAP.)
