I would like to check a translation by printing it, but I would like the source text to be readable as well.

How can I do that?

Thank you in advance,

Highlight the entire document. Then set the font format so that none of the text is hidden. (If there are headers, footers or text boxes, you'll have to do this separately for them.)

Then print.

I assume you have a Word document. Click on Print/Options/Include with text: and tick Hidden text.

This may be different according to your Word version, but there's always a similar option.

Hi Ivana,

Provided you've been working in TagEditor, there is a hidden gem called TableView. It's little known, but quick, smooth and very powerful.

We have discussed the topic a few times here, see:
