Good morning dear colleagues,

I have quite urgent question and would be very grateful for any help.

I have TRADOS 2011 installed. PM sent me partly translated bilingual files in doc format.
I imported the files in TRADOS, but when I open it i see only translated segments, no filters are applied, and word count does not correspond to the real one, i.e. TRADOS counts only translated words.

Do you have any ideas what it can be??

Partial pretranslation Jun 18, 2012

Hi Maria,
I believe that the problem is that your client only pretranslated those segments that are already in the TM, i.e. without the option "Segment unknown sentences" checked.

Please inform your client that he should pretranslate DOC(X) files with the option "Segment unknown sentences" checked. That should be working.
