I am translating a document with over 16,000 repetitions, most of which are contained in a series of tables.

The target segment is sometimes only visible in Reading Layout, the layout then reverts to Normal once I have translated the segment and pressed Set/Close. I have also tried using Web Layout but this also reverts to Normal when I translate to fuzzy, i.e. a 100% match.

Is there any way of speeding up what is otherwise a very time-consuming task?

I'm using Trados SDL 2007 and Word 2003.

Many thanks

using TagEditor would be the most recommended solution. However if one needs to stay within Word, removing table row height will make everything visible in any layout (select table, Table > Properties, Row tab...).
