I use TRADOS 2014. I have a client who wants to create word files that contain a two-column text box. The left-hand column would contain the original text (Japanese) and the right-hand column would contain my translation (Japanese). The client wants this format so they don't have to check things in multiple piles of paper. Is this doable? If so, how? Thanks in advance for your comments, questions, solutions, etc.

James

Export for external review Aug 30, 2014

The easiest way to do this is to use "Export for external review" (in the review tab).
The result is a bilingual Word document in table format. You can delete the extra columns in Word if you don't want them.

Error Sep 2, 2014

Hi James,
Thank you for your topic. I am learning one more new thingicon_biggrin.gif

Hi Emma,
I try to practice this as below:
- Open 2-sentence word (excel) file in trados
- Copy source to target
- Ctr-Enter
- Save sdlxliff
-Review tab --> Export for external review -> next....

I got this error:

"Could not load file or assembly 'DocumentFormat.OpenXML, Version = 2.0.5022, Culture = Neutral, PublicKeyToken=31b....' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the specified."

I got the same error when doing it with SDLXLIFF Coverter for MS WORD

Did I do wrong ?
