Setting up placeable format tags in Trados 2011
Thread poster: xxxSabrina.D

Jun 20, 2013

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a .xml with SDL Trados Studio 2011 and as this is the first time I'm preparing files to translate, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I would like to know how to replace color code (like ^^FF... the hex color code) by placeable tags, so that the translator could insert them using QuickPlace.

Example of strings:
Click ^^FFFFFFhere for a ^^FFFFFFtrophyl!^^000000

I am very new to all that, I never prepped files before, so sorry if my question triggers a general "duh"

Thank you!

Hi Jillian,

Can you provide a little more information regarding the content of the file... so give the full strings inside the xml rather than just the parts you specifically wish to hide.

Also good know whether this is within a CDATA section or just simple xml.
