Hi,

I have translated a sentence in Trados TagEditor, the bilingual content is as followed:

Managing Voice Messages in Your E-mail Program2-6Gestion des messages vocaux dans votre programme de messagerie électronique2-6

There are several tags such as ps,cc,hmk, etc. I want to ask when I use this ttx to extract a tmx, what will it be like? Will these tags contain in the tmx file?

Since my Trados is just for demo use, I can't get the tmx file from ttx file. Thanks so much.

Beebee

Yes, they will appear in the TM Apr 10, 2008

Tags usually are stored with the translation unit in the translation memory. At first, it may sound scary - but fear not. Trados has an option to strip tags. So, if you use the TM you created, which contains tags, on a new document, if the tags in the TM do not appear in the text you are translating, the match will be inserted without the tags - but you will still be able to see those tags in Workbench and in the Concordance window.

In a nutshell, if you translated segments containing tags, the tags are always kept with the TM.

Several questions Apr 15, 2008

Thanks, Viktoria
I still have several questions about it. Could you please help me to find the answer?

Q1. If there are contents in tags in the source locale, such as <:v "Connection" 3>,"Connection" will not be translated. Right?

Q2. If I use Trados to translate a mif, I will get a correponding TM which may contian many tags. However, my customer uses Idiom WorldServer, he wants to use this TM to match his document which is similar with the one I translated. Since there are many tags in the TM, the 100% match rate will be very low. Thus, what can I do if I want to improve his leverage rate? Use the method to strip tags? If there is content in tags, it may be not good to strip these tags, right?

Q3. If I want to strip tags, how to do it?

Thanks in advance.

Beebee
