When I work with tables I can only see the source language box, I cannot see the target language box. Is there a solution

The table row height is fixed in Word Jul 8, 2008

Select the table or the row, right click it, select the table properties, go to the row tab and unselect the fixed height.
If you wan to keep the original heigtht, change the fixed height to "at least".
Refer to Word help, as this is Word basic stuff and not a Trados problem.
The best way to avoid all such problems is to use Tageditor.

Solution Jul 8, 2008


yes, this is easy.

Open the word file in Tageditor and translate with Tageditor.

Simpler solution Jul 8, 2008

A much simpler solution:

Shift to Web view. It's the third button at the lower left part of your Word screen. (Or Menu-View-Web). It solves the problem with me. It should work with you, too.

Best regards,

Yes, a lot safer than translating in Word!
