Hi!

I have received an XLS spreadsheet for translation, the delivery format is both .xls and .ttx. The thing is, that out of about 10 columns, only one needs to be translated. The question now is - can I block the other columns somehow in TagEditor or MSExcel so that when I load the spreadsheet into TagEditor and then use the alt+* combination, I only open the cells just from the one column I need to translate? In MSWord, when I needed to do a similar operation, I used the style "tw4winExternal", but AFAIK there are no styles in MSExcel.

Much obliged for any help ;]

Hi, Apr 29, 2010

I think you should hide the columns (in Excel) which are not to be translated and translate the spreadsheet with TE, or save the single column to be translated, translate it with TE, and paste back the translation into the spreadsheet.

thanks Apr 29, 2010

OK, thanks, that is some workflow to adapt. I was just thinking if there is some way to mark a segment as blocked for translation - that is actually what I sometimes get from translation agencies, pre-prepared .ttx's with such blocked segments.
