Hello everyone,

I need urgent help with a problem I have! I've been sent a document to translate that has Trados 6.5 tags. I use Trados Studio 2014. When I add the document to Trados Studio only the parts with the tags are loaded. So basically, only the parts that already have a translation (for revision) are loaded and the text to be translated is nowhere in sight. I'm really don't know how to solve this problem. Please help!

Just in case anybody stumbles across this and wonders how I solved it. I asked the agency to copy the untranslated source text into the target text segments so that all the text appeared in Trados. You then have the option of leaving the target segments blank on all 0% matches. This then allows you to work as normal. I hope this helps.
