There's a docx file with a text mixed with fragments from HTML file.

The problem is to parse HTML tags in SDL Studio Editor, which doesn't seem to recognize any of them. See the pic: .

Is there any way to automatically parse and protect these tags?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

This issue has been raised in other posts, see link below, is for an Excel file but you should be able to fix it for Word as well:

HTH,

Thanks, Bernard

Followed this instruction step by step: http://producthelp.sdl.com/SDL%20Trados%20Studio/client_en/SDL_Trados_Studio_Help.htm#File_Types/Configure_EmbedCont_in_XML_Files.htm

But still, something went wrong as tags didn't go away:

Any suggestions, ideas?

Have you reimported the file after changing the rules?

Dum answer Jul 25, 2013

Yes, I did, actually.

Also, it seems that I took the wrong path and .docx files have nothing to do with XML file type.

In the thread about embedded HTML in an Excel document the rules were added in the "Embedded content" page for MS Excel filetype (which wasn't clear for me first), while MS Word filetype tree doesn't have such page:


Looks like the same trick doesn't work for Word.

UPD: Tried to open for translation a random .htm file and the tags are not parsed again:


I get the idea that I don't understand something fundamental about Trados.

Conclusion Aug 1, 2013

OK, I gave up and switched to MemoQ/DJV as was suggested here: http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/245896-embedded_html_in_xlsx_file.html#2114137.
Both of the products managed to parse the tags, not all of them, but pretty much the most part. Did it with a few clicks, by the way.

The problem... Aug 1, 2013

.... is that the docx filter does not have an embedded content component. This is only possible using excel or XML at the moment. Your screenshots are also very confusing because you seem to be trying to change the settings for one file type and then opening another... at least I'm confused!

The only way to handle files like this using Studio is to either copy the html parts to a separate file and handle as html files then copy/paste back afterwards... or use a search/replace in Word to hide the tagging and then handle as a Word file.

The latter may be easier depending on the content and how clever you can get using Words regex capability : http://goo.gl/uVpHOH
