Hi all,

I want to print a bilingual TTX as a PDF.
The intention is to show the client which tags are protected, and what text that shows up as translatable.

But in TagEditor (8.3) the Print option is greyed out. I can't print the TTX as PDF or any other format.
I was trying the Trados Tagviewer plug-in, but it doesn't display the tag content, so it's no good for my purpose.

I thought of viewing the TTX in a text editor, but that's no good because the formatting doesn't distinguish between translatable and non-translatable content.

Any idea why the Print option is greyed? Or any workaround for creating a PDF of the TTX?

A last resort would be to just take screen shots of the TTX, but it doesn't look very professional.

Thanks in advance!

Only html can be printed Dec 19, 2011

Hello Jan,

only html documents can be printed directly from TagEditor, please see the info in the TagEditor help:

The Print command (File menu)
Use the Print command to print the active document.

This command is only available for HTML documents in Preview mode. To print other types of document such as XML, SGML and Workbench RTF, use the external application that you normally use for printing files of this type. You can launch

You can launch the external application directly from TagEditor if it has been set up accordingly using the Tag Settings Wizard.

I assume that in your case it is not html?

Therefore, I would create screen shots explaining to the customer that the editor you use (maybe on his specific request?) doesn't allow other options.

thanks Dec 19, 2011

Hi Martina and all,

Thanks a lot for your explanation!
Unless anyone else has a workaround, I'll have to go with the screenshots.

I guess SDL never thought of this intendented use. I don't want to print the resulting target document, only what I see in front of my eyes when I open the TTX in TagEditor, with the protected tags.
