Hello everyone,

I have some Word files for translation, in which I only have to translate the highlighted parts.

Is it possible to create a filter in Studio 2014 that allows me to isolate those highlighted segments that need to be translated?

Many thanks in advance!

Catarina

TransTools Jul 14, 2015

Hi Catarina,

One way is to use TranTools to hide all the unhighlighted parts before import, so Studio will only import the highlighted parts. Then use TransTools on the final doc to unhide all hidden text.

I used the same approach but using Word instead. Jul 14, 2015

Hi Elif,

TransTools is a Word add-in, so you basically just use it from inside Word. The developer has a very clear website explaining all of the functions of TransTools, and the Hide / Unhide Text tool here:
