Hi all,

I am in the middle of a translation in TagEditor. It' s a quite large project so, I have already created a considerably helpful TM.

But, I am having a problem as, when the translator workbench finds a 100% match and drops it automatically in TagEditor, the style and size of the letters is different (not matching those of the source text). So, I have to do a lot additional copy-paste work which is very time-consuming.

Thanks a lot for your attention and help!

Albana

font and size Oct 18, 2009

As far as I know, I think there is an option in Trados workbench to change font and size of the TM.

Don't worry Oct 18, 2009

Hi Albana,
don't worry about fonts and font sizes in TE. It is the surrounding tags that determine the layout of the final document, not the font or font size themselves. So, you don't have to copy-paste anything. Just let Workbench do its job.

font size doesn't matter in Tag Editor Oct 18, 2009

If I understand right, you are getting different fonts in the target segments of Tag Editor, not in the translated document.
In that case, it doesn't matter what it looks like because the tags define font, size, colour etc. Tag Editor is clearly not WYSIWYG!

If you mean that your translated file in Word/Excel or whatever has changed, then I'm afraid I can't help on that one.

Solved out! Oct 18, 2009

Thanks Stanislav and Emma,

I just saved the part I have finished translating so far (as target text) and Yes!, everything is just fine with the style and size of the letters. As you pointed out, it the tags that define the font in the target version.

I really appreciate your help and hope I can be of help to you some time.

Thank you! Happy translations!
Albana
