I used Trados 2009 to translate a html file.
The client is (rightfully) complaining that the tags have been changed, "", etc.
I didn't edit the file at all, really just imported it into Studio, translated it and generated a translated document which I sent to the client.
Do I need to change the options in Trados or anything?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Characters converted to entities? Feb 16, 2010

Do you mean the regular characters were converted to entities?

Sorry Feb 16, 2010

Oh sorry, it looked normal when I typed it, I hadn't seen it would be displayed like that!
Again with spaces so you understand what I mean:
"" is now "& g t ;"

It looks normal when I open the file in my browser, that's why I delivered the file like that. But when I open it in Editor, I can see indeed that the tags look different and this is a problem for the client.

Authors wishing to put the "" (ASCII decimal 62) in text instead of ">" to avoid problems with older user agents that incorrectly perceive this as the end of a tag (tag close delimiter) when it appears in quoted attribute values.

Problem solved Feb 16, 2010

The problem has been solved in the meantime, thanks.
The tags are no HTML, that's why Studio converts them when generating the translated file. So it is actually a problem with the source file, not with Studio.

Anyway, since my client wants to get files with the same tags, it is possible to change it in Options / HTML / Entity conversion and to untick "Convert entities" which is ticked by default.
