I converted a pdf source file into RTF and opened it in Studio 9. I am intrigued to find all these triangular formatting tags on both source and target columns. Apparently each word is formatted apart. If I remove them, it gives error messages.

Are the tag marks necessary when you have WYSIWIG display?

I tried pasting a screenshot into this msg but does'nt seem to work.

Trados vs ABBYY Aug 19, 2011

Thank you Selcuk, for your message. In fact ever since fax machines went out of fashion, we get only pdf files to translate and there is still no efficient solution to convert them into Word. ABBYY software is good but I feel the Trados conversion engine provides a far cleaner output.

translate the Word file Aug 19, 2011

Hi Vishwa,

Please read this part of SDL Support's post:

Studio can be very useful, and a good tip is sometimes to open the PDF in Studio, save the target immediately so you have the Word version and then tidy up the Word file removing all unnecessary formatting. Then translate the Word file instead of the PDF. If you do it the other way around you might have to deal with a myriad of tags and still have to tidy up the document afterwards.



Save the target immediately, that is "copy source segments to target" in SDL Studio and export a Word document. Then clean unnecessary formatting in Word.

David Turner's CodeZapper is a good tool for cleaning rogue codes. See http://asap-traduction.com/CodeZapper

Finally import this Word file back to Studio and translate.
