Hello

I use Trados 2011 but a client has asked me to work on a translation on Trados 2007 (I've downloaded it). I have never used this version before, my translation is completed and I am getting the message: ' warning segments require format painting - the doc will be saved however you may need to complete format painting before this document can be used to create a translation'.

I'm in a rush and am trying to google it tonight, but any help than could speed my research would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Format painting in a nutshell Mar 16, 2015

Locate the segments requiring the format painting (are marked green on the left). Press Ctrl+F9 (the cursor will be changed to a brush). In the source (left) column, select the text marked by a colour. Switch to the translation (right) column and select the corresponding translated text (will be "painted" by the same colour). Repeat as necessary.
