Hello,

I have to translate into French a PPT-presentation in which the slides are in English and the comment pages under the slides are in German. So I have a ttx-file which contains both languages as source.

Is it possible to translate the slides with my EN-FR TM and to "switch" the TM when it comes to comments? It will surely be tedious, but I can't see another solution.
If it's possible, will it cause problems when I clean up the file, or should I "Save as target" only?
If it's not possible, how can I proceed?

Regards,
Sylvain

PS I think I rather should cut and paste the comments into a Word document and translate them with the second TM, then paste them back in the target ppt-file.

Well, simply translate the EN segments wit the EN TM, and for all DE segments make a "Copy segment" then clean up. Open this new file with the DE TM and make the same now copying the FR (already done) segments.

Thanks Jan 21, 2005

Thank you Toledo,

This is a good way round. But I had already begun to translate the comments in a separate Word document, so I will continue so

Regards,
Sylvain
