Hi all

i do have a small problem:
I have 200 xml files to translate from EN to GER. The text to translate is mostly two, three lines.
I also have to print them and do proof reading and that is where the problem starts.

I can open each xml file with Framemaker 8 andprint it directly but when i merge those files with Trados Glue the glued Master file does not open in Framemaker any more.

Does anybody have a hint?
How can i reduce my costs on paper printing several smal xml files on one sheet of paper?

Sonja

almost forgot : i work on Trados Freelance 7.5

Trados Glue makes TTX files, not XML Nov 18, 2009

When you merge with SDL Trados Glue you get one big TTX file. No surprise that Framemaker does not recognize the format.

There is a print command in Trados TagEditor. You could use a printer driver that prints to a PDF file, and then use the feature in Adobe Reader that allows you to print several logical pages on one sheet of paper.

Halo

thanks for the answer.
I tried to print the xmls in Tageditor but the print command, as i read, is only for html files to be printed.
Still i have to open them the files individually in framemaker and make pdfs of them.

Could you tell me where is the option you spoke about in Adobe Reader that allows you to print several logical pages on one sheet of paper?
