Hi all,

There is a commenting function in TagEditor that is quite convenient.
It creates a small .comments file, that is paired up with the .ttx

After translation, it can be viewed by another Trados user (like a reviewer or agency).

But what about recipients that don't have Trados? Is there any way for anyone else to read these comments in a format that makes sense?

I know that the .comments file is XML based, so it opens in Word and MSIE. But since it then is detached from the .ttx, most remarks from the translator makes no sense if you can't read the base segment that it refers to.

Is there any plug-in or template in TagEditor that outputs both the comment and the segment it refers to???

Or do you know any other workaround?
