Hello everyone

I work with Word 2000 (I know, it’s a prehistoric version) and Trados 2009 SP3 (English to French). In my source texts, Trados show dozens of useless tags (for example tags that turn Fonts on and off between two words where you don’t need them); and these tags have to be repeated in the target segment, otherwise Trados won’t convert my work back to Word (View in MS Word as Target). From within Word, you cannot see these tags, they only appear once you have added your text to a Trados project.

Someone must have had the same problem. So how can you get rid of those tags before you start working on a text? Or is there any other elegant solution to this other problem?

Thanks.

Jean-Pierre
