Hi all,

I really need your help with this!

I have received a TRADOSTag document to have it translated into Spanish.

I have opened it with my SDL Studio 2011 and have found that there are thousands of tags on it!!! There is a tag between every single Word and the next one!

AS you may guess, translating the text this way (20,000 words) seems impossible to me!

I know there is a tool to fix this problem in Word files (Codezapper), but it cannot be used on PowerPoint files!!!

Could you please help me with this?

THank you so much!

When you open... Nov 1, 2013

... the file in Powerpoint do you have any clue what these tags are doing? I am aware of a few neat tools here : http://necco.ca/dv/ppt_excel.htm that can remove line feeds, carriage returns etc. But if this is some sort of kerning or font changes then it may not be so simple.

Perhaps something there will be helpful?

Regards

Paul
