I am using Trados 6.0 and I would like to know if I can hide tags and source segment texts temporarily during proofreading the target text, so that I can edit the target text before I clean the file.

Is this possible at all?

Hide non printable characters in Word Jun 27, 2004

Go to Tools->Options (in Word), and on the View tab, deselect the checkbox for Hidden Text (or All, depending on your Word version).
This will hide all source segments, not the external tags and internal tags of the target segments, however.

Possible, but not recommended Jun 27, 2004

Hi Saskia,
It's possible (as described by Stefan), but I would strongly recommend not to edit while source text and tags are hidden, due to the risk of damaging tags and segments.

Best regards,
Ralf

Proofreading not editing Jun 27, 2004

I would like to hide tags only for proofreading purposes, not editing.

The editing can be done later, when all is visible again, so that I don't accidentaly alter tags etc.

Thanks for the advice!
Kind regards,
Saskia
