I have a source file in English language containing 11 pages. The first 7 pages have been translated by a translator using MS Word. The next four (4) pages of same file have been translated using TagEditor. Is there any method (apart from WingAlign or copy and paste) using which I can put the initial 7 pages in the TagEditor file that I have translated. I shall appreciate help on this.

Reopen the source document and do a translate to fuzzy Sep 24, 2010

Assuming that you have all already translated segments in your TM, you can open the source document and do a translate to fuzzy. You may need to correct some non 100% matches due to small tag differences between Word and Tag Editor, but this should still be a quite fast process.

Obviously, if the translators of the two parts have used a different TM, you first need to merge them in order to have all segments in the TM.
