Hello, we often got excel sheets to translate. The cells we have to translate looks like this text to translate. We only should translate the text between and . Is there a possibility in TRADOS to say and are TAGS and should not be translated. Or to lock these terms against editing? Sorry my english is very poor, hope you understand what I want to say.
I could use Trados 2007 and 2009.

cascading filters or xml Oct 12, 2011

Perhaps something like the Cascading Filters of MemoQ is required. Such a feature available in Studio 2011?

Another solution maybe exporting/saving excel files as xml, but I did not test this one.
