Hi,

I have a problem with the format in Trados SDL 2009.

Sometimes, when I translate a segment, the format is wrong, i.e. Trados uses a different font type/size etc. compared to the source text. Also when I insert segments from the translation memory, formats will not be adapted to the source text format.

Can somebody help me with this?

Thx in adance - Eva

Use tags instead of plain formatting Aug 25, 2010

I assume you are working in WYSIWYG GUI of Studio, with all tags hidden.
Would you show tags, at least partially, would you see where the formatting starts and end.
In case you do not use tags, you can still select the text which is not formatted correctly, then press CTRL and point with the mouse on the correctly formatted text in source and click it. This will apply the same formatting to target.
However, I for one do prefer working with tags, so I even do not show any formatting but just plain tags in Studio - I find that way easier.
