Dear colleagues,
I really need your help. Could anyone tell me how to edit bookmarks in the source text? The text is full of bookmarks and I need to translate the things which are inside the bookmark, but I don't know how to do it. Any suggestion? Below is the example of what I'm dealing with:

So as you see I have to translate "ЗАО Домодедово АйТи Сервисиз" into English, but when I start editing it, it just disappears:( Thank you for any help in advance!

If you do not need the bookmarks you can convert the fields in the document into plain text by selecting everything and pressing Ctrl+Shift+F9. This seems the only way to deal with the so called DocVariables.

For further investigation I would look at the Word source with field codes turned on (use Alt+F9 to toggle).
