Hi everybody!
I have a problem with an assignment: my client sent me a Word document with many modifications with the track changes function on, and he wants the translation to retain that format.
I told him the modification ID would dissappear and he agreed, but now I'm trying to think of a way to do it with Trados and cannot seem to find a solution.
Hope you can help me.
TIA

...to Trados Support.
I'm afraid there's no way you can retain the revision marking: Trados and Track Changes are mutually exclusive.

Nor would keeping the markups make much sense, unless there is a previous translation you could compare with.

If that's the case, you can run a document comparison against that version once you have completed the translation.

Sorry... Ralf

I tried different options ... wanted to check if some of the Office savvy people here could come up with any "creative" solution.
Tnx again
