Hi there,

I've been using Trados 2011 for some time now but such a thing has never happened to me before. As you may guess, the deadline is coming, so I'm counting on you!
The problem is that after generating a target file, all tables in the Word file are flipped horizontally.
Any ideas why and how to change it? When viewing a source file, all is ok.
Before importing the file for translation, I repaired it in MS Word and no errors were found...


Cheers,
Robert

Applying format brush? Sep 9, 2013

Hi Robert,

I don't quite understand what do the flipped tables look like, but as a quick remedy (without researching for the reasons of this problem), maybe you could just try using the format paint (aka malarz formatów) to apply the formatting from the "good-looking" source tables to the flipped tables in the translation?

Natalia

P.S. I mean doing this in Word, of course

Hi Natalia,

The table is rotated from left to right, like in the mirror, and the format brush doesn't work in this caseicon_frown.gif I'm looking for some settings in Trados, but unsuccessfully so far.

Reveal formatting in Word Sep 10, 2013

Hi Robert, if you are still struggling with the problem: try to reveal formatting in Word to see what's going on. Press Shift + F1, and the Reveal Formatting pane displays.

have solved the problem Sep 11, 2013

I have managed to solve the problem using Studio 2009 instead of 2011. I used exactly the same file, pre-translated it using TM from T2011 and created the target file with correct formatting. Fortunately.

Natalie, thanks for your help.

Cheers,
R.
