Hi all!!

I've seen in several Proz forums that some people have posted topics related to Trados not recognizing the DoNotTranslate style in MS Word documents. I thought that the DoNotTranslate Style was a style that had to be set up in Trados, but it seems that it's a MS Word feature. Can someone explain to me how to set up this style in MS Word?

I am studying for my trados certification and I am supposed to configure my Trados 2011 so that it does not show any paragraph marked with the DoNotTranslate style for translation. I understand the process, but I'd also like to know how to mark a paragraph with this style.

Kind regards,

Karina Garcia Pedroche

The simplest way to create texts that will not be processed by Studio 2009 (and, I suppose, 2011) is hide them in MS Word. You will not see those texts in Studio 2011 unless you select „All contents" in the Display Window of Editor View.

Hi Karina,

István is correct in thta using the hidden attribute in word is simple. Butu if you do wish to use the styles, and using DoNotTranslate as an example, then you would simply add this style in the Styles Window.

I only have Office 2010 so all you do is open the Styles pane like this:


Then click add new style:


Then fill in the details... you only really need to complete two fields for this, the name and the style type:


Finally, you just select the text in MSWord that needs this style and then click on the style as it should now be showing in the Style toolbar.

Hope that helps a little.

Regards

Paul

Great! Thank you! Apr 3, 2012

Thank you guys!! Your explanations have been very helpful! I own MS Word 2007 and you don't have the option to add a new style. I am aware of the fact that SDL Studio 2011 is based mainly on the features of Word 2010. May be I'll install the new Office in my PC so that I can cover all this features. Thanks again!

Karina

To follow Paul’s instructions in creating a new style you do not necessarily have to install Office 2010 – both the layout of the screen and the process are just the same with Office 2007.
