I was recently asked to have a look into the workings of Trados 2007, in order to be able to help our freelancers with possible issues that arise.

The other day I found and start working through a tutorial, Trados for Dummies (which was originally in spanish) I got the a point where the guide explains TWB tags and how they work.
Guide states to select the Word 'show/hide' function while Word is connected to Translator Workbench.

For some reason though, the Trados tags as well as the sentences, both before and after translation are shown on the page and I can't seem to get rid of them...

Anyone got a helpful tip?

In Word 2007 go to Sep 23, 2011

"Office button > Word Options > View" and uncheck the "Hidden text" checkfield.
That should be working.
