G'day everyone

Something has happened to my TagEditor and I don't know how to fix it.

I have MS Word files in which some text is tw4winExternal, some text is tw4winInternal, and the rest of the text is supposed to be translatable. When I open these files in TagEditor and then do a pre-translate (source=target) using an empty TM, Trados places the tw4winExternal *inside* the segments as a tag. Huh??? This is not useful -- it basically adds a bunch of extra tags that I'm not going to move around anyway.

I checked that tw4winExternal and tw4winInternal are marked as "ex"and "in" in Workbench.

Does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong here?

Thanks
Samuel

I found a temporary fix. If the translatable text is in the same font as the font that is specified in the style that it is in, then Trados places the tw4winExtrernal text inside the tag, but... if I change the font of the translatable text to something else (e.g. Courier), then Trados successfully separates the external text from the translatable text in the TagEditor file.
