Hello everyone,
I tried searching for this one but couldn't make progress.
Just when I am moving along with Trados feeling good, something rears its ugly head.

I am using Trados 2009, with SP1.
I am translating an article on Cardiology.
The source document has a number, with the item right next to it.
Like this: 1. L'examen cardiologique. BUT the target translation looks like this: 1.
The cardiac exam.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong if you can.
Thank you so much for your help.

Format when source text is hidden Feb 6, 2010

Whenever I have both segments open or indeed both source and target showing, the format is never spot on. Does it go back to "normal" when you close the source text segment? Which is in effect what the doc will look like to the client, who will get the clean version.
