Hi,

I usually translate pictures using a table where non-translatable source text is in the left column (with tw4winInternal style applied) and translatable source text in the right column. But when I press Alt+Num plus just before the table, Trados skips the whole table and opens the first unit after the table. If I try to open a unit inside the table with Alt+Home, it does open, but the rest of the table gets skipped when I press Alt+Num Plus. Therefore I have to manually go to ea

Hi,

I usually translate pictures using a table where non-translatable source text is in the left column (with tw4winInternal style applied) and translatable source text in the right column. But when I press Alt+Num plus just before the table, Trados skips the whole table and opens the first unit after the table. If I try to open a unit inside the table with Alt+Home, it does open, but the rest of the table gets skipped when I press Alt+Num Plus. Therefore I have to manually go to each unit, open it, and close it, which isn't terribly efficient. And I know for sure that before Trados didn't do that and moved correctly to the next traslatable unit in the table.

Does anybody know the fix for that?

P.S.: this doesn't happen in a table without non-translatable content.

I had exactly the same problem when I was using Trados 2007 and Word 2003. I never managed to solve it (maybe I even posted a question about it here). Normally I would use TagEditor instead. Since I switched to Word 2010 it's no longer a problem, although that could of course just be me. Good luck!

The correct style name is "Do Not Translate" May 13, 2011

Seems like I've figured it out.
Instead of "tw4winInternal", you should use "Do Not Translate" style for the left column - then Trados will behave correctly when encountering such a table.
