Hi friends,

I have Trados 7.0, Win XP and Word 2003. I translated a Word file by using Trados and sent it to my client after cleaning it. The cleaned file is displaying perfectly on my machine and I can't see any Trados tags with source text but the client says "You need to clean-up the files with TRADOS to make monolingual file for only Hindi. When I open the files,I still can see TRADOS tags and English source texts."

It is surprising that I can't see any Trados tags with the source text in the clean file but he sees them. The "Hidden text" is checked in the View tab, so if there is any hidden text, I should be able to see it.

Could you please suggest a solution for this problem?

Regards,

Chopra

maybe in the footnote? try with the macro Sep 2, 2010

Hello Chopra,

is your client seeing the tags & source text all over the text? The only thing I can think of is the footnote. Sometimes footnotes are not cleaned via TWB > Tools > Cleanup.

Just to make things quick (I presume you are sure you did clean the file & a *bak file was created in the very same folder...): use the macro in MSWord (Tools > Macro > Macro tw4winClean.Main. This macro cleans anything...

Have you sent the right file? Sep 2, 2010

So when you look at the file in Word, you see the paragraph marks at the end of the paragraphs, and the little dots for the spaces? If you don,t, go to Tools > Options > "View" tab > mark the "All" checkbox in the "Formatting marks" group. Click OK in the dialog box. Also check that the paragraph-mark icon in your toolbar is clicked on. You should now see little dots in the spaces and other marks.

If with all marks and hidden text visible you cannot see Trados marks or the source text, it is impossible that the customer can see them. Is it possible that you simply sent the customer the wrong file (the uncleaned one)?
