Apologies if this issue has been raised elsewhere.

I occasionally translate PowerPoint presentations using Studio. (Studio 2011 now seems to be able to handle these).

However following the translation I notice that some (nearly all) of the graphics have been changed (arrows made larger and boxes made smaller in this current case) and the text layout (e.g. line spacing) has also been modified.

Am I missing something? Should I be making changes to Settings to stop this occurring.

While Studio is indeed extremely useful, it is very time-consuming to have to go back through the PPT slide by slide and rectify the layout.

Any ideas anyone?

Maybe this is a tagging issue? May 3, 2013


Try pressing F8 when the file is open in Studio and this may find missing tags that you need to insert into your target translation from the source.
