... into target files.

Dear All,

a client of me sent some Excel spreadsheets concerning administrative procedures to translate and he put a flow diagram on last page, that he mounted with Excel's autoforms.

I translated all segments inside Trados, including those autoform segments, but, when Trados generates the target file, then some of such autoform texts appear with source texts, not with target ones.

I searched at SDL, and there was stated that it could be some protected areas of the spreadsheet, which is not the case, since all cells are open.

Could someone help, please ?

We can take a look at the file and see if we can find a solution if you can share it?

I'm having the same problem. In my case, I think I see a pattern relating to the cell coloring that is supposed to prevent certain text from being included in the text to be translated.
