Hello,

This is a Wordfast question, but involves TagEditor, so I hope someone here might have an idea that could help me solve my problem. I haven't had any luck yet on the Wordfast forum or Yahoo Group.

I am a long-time Wordfast Classic user, now switching over to Pro (2.4.1). A client has sent me TTX files for translation (created as per the WF instructions) along with a Trados TMX memory. The memory and files imported fine - so far, so good. However, he would like to know whether I can view the "attributes" (the tag is ) for each segment while translating the segments in WFPro. I cannot find any way to do this.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
Daina

Point to the tags with your mouse pointer Mar 21, 2011

Hi Daina,

You can see all the information when you hover your mouse pointer over the {ut1} etc. tags.

Cheers,
Gerard

Only formatting? Mar 21, 2011

Don't the {ut1} tags only provide formatting information? Maybe I need to take another look, but I couldn't see the info my client wanted me to see in those tags.

Nope, WF is stripping out the tags Mar 23, 2011

Client took a look at the TMX file I exported from WFPro and found that the import process is stripping the relevant (not formatting, but context) attributes out. Back to the drawing board!
