Hi!

I just have one question which won't be difficult in the view of most of you. I am using Trados 7.0 for translating in Microsoft Word. After a reinstallation, a problem occurs - the source texts of already translated units isn't visible. That means that I can just see the already translated text in the target language instead of both versions which would make it much easier to compare the source and the target units. Is there any option in Word or how can I change this?

Thank you!

Hi Jonas,
This is a Word setting that has been discussed many times in the forum - search for "hidden text".

HTH, Ralf

In the Word menu bar go to Tools > Options > View tab and make sure the "Show hidden text" checkbox is checked.

Word has its problems with hidden text sometimes, though. While mostly it is enough to click this button, on a few occasions however you have to follow the aforementioned instructions and enable it in the menus.
