Is there any way to turn this feature off? Rearranging tags when translating from German is a nightmare due to different word order.
Thanks

Yes, you can turn it off in the Tag Verification options.

In addition, let me make a suggestion to avoid this problem that bothers you.

Instead of rearranging the tags in your target segment, translate the text without any tags in a first step and only once you have the entire target text, insert the tag pairs where they belong.

In my experience, this is much faster, provided you use the QuickPlace CTRL-click method to insert your tag pairs.
Inserting tags into a text not yet cluttered by tags is not only much faster but also easier because you get a clear view of the text (without tags in between).

Thanks, Walter!
I looked for Tag verification under project settings\verification, but couldn't find it. I'm sure it's hiding in plain sight.

Normally I translate then add the tags as you suggest, but the ghost tag issue is a problem.

If you have a pre-SP2 version, look under "Filetype - Microsoft Word 2007-2013", it's there.

It appears in every filetype separately, and in SP2 it was moved to an overall setting in "Verification".

Thanks again, Walter!

Oddly enough I have SP2R, but couldn't find it under Verification.

You've been very helpful!
