Dear all,

I've just purchased Studio 2009 and here is what I am looking for:
I am partially translating a Word file using Trados. Then, I would like to send a this pre-translated Word file to my sub-contractor (he does not use Trados) in which the sentences remaining to be translated are clearly visible (highlighted, or different color for example).

I know that in Trados 2007 (Workbench's options) there was an option to change the color of the source text. I can't find anything of the sort in the new 2009 version.

If anyone knows how to do it or has another idea that leads to the same result (produce a Word file in which non-translated sentences can be spot easily), I will be so grateful !

Can you not simply change the colour of the text to be translated in Word, not Trados?
I sometimes receive files like that - the text to be translated in dark blue.

Manual vs automatic Dec 10, 2009

Dear Peter,

of course I could do that, but it will be much more time consuming to go through the whole document and mark only the untranslated sentences lost among the translated ones.
But since my document has been processed in Trados (to translate the segments already in the TM) I would have been much quicker if Trados could do it automatically based on the segment status: if status=untranslated then write the sentence in blue.
